Home How-To Clinics

If you are anything like us, we are experiencing a bit of Spring Fever here at Painted Prairie. We can all feel a slight uptick in temperature as the prairie starts to wake up from its long winter’s nap. It is this time of year that our thoughts turn to longer days, and the promise that summer is just around the corner.

If you are feeling it too, then you’re not going to want to miss Painted Prairie’s first Micro Pop Up Market on Saturday, May 1, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 pm. Different than a traditional Farmer’s Market, and much smaller in scale, this micro market features a carefully curated selection of local vendors offering small batch craft soaps and honey, household knife sharpening, and bike tune-ups. White Rabbit Coffee is back on site with its cappuccinos and lattes to fuel your morning.

Love 4 Bees

Dan, the owner of Love 4 Bees began beekeeping in 2015 as a hobby with one beehive in his backyard. The initial goal of this first hive, was to buy a beehive and have a personal honey source. That quickly evolved into selling other beekeepers’ honey to his friends and associates. Since then, he has discovered the benefits of raw unfiltered honey was for people who suffered from pollen allergies. Now selling honey, bees wax and honeycombs to customers in and around Thornton.
