First of all thank you all very much for your support of Bee Local. The response has been overwhelmingly positive. Bee Local is now 42% funded.
We are off to a great start and we still have a ways to go. Let's keep spreading the word about this project. If you would all post about it on your Facebook, Twitter accounts or other social networks that would be great!
All funding will go to help Bee Local expand into Olympia, Seattle and San Francisco. I have locations in each city, I just need the hives to place in each. The successful funding of this project will allow me to meet the demand for Bee Local honey. Interest is growing daily.
A few days ago I received an email from Pastaworks, a local speciality food store, asking if I'd like to put Bee Local in their three Portland area stores. I also met with the owner of the amazing Salt & Straw, handmade ice cream, who want to carry Bee Local and develop ice cream recipes using it.
I wanted to share a couple articles that have been recently written about this project:

For those of you who are receiving a T-shirt upon funding success, I've attached a photo of what they look like.
Once again thank you for your support and let's get the word out!
