OLD GREENWICH HONEY BY JOEL DAWSON
Joel is our local bee keeper who has 8 hives right here in Old Greenwich. His honey is never pasteurized so it retains all the natural pollen and enzymes for a healthy lifestyle.

His honey is simple AND delicious....now word has spread and we can't keep the bottles on our shelves!

Elena is an Old Greenwich artist whose career began quite recently. Though she has always enjoyed portraying people around her, with a touch of whimsy, she has now translated that into collage.
