Here’s the buzz: Best honey hands down in Wisco and the world. Long reign Queen Bee.

Honey Me This, Honey Me That, Honey & Bread is Where its At…

We’re buzzing about getting ready for Gallery Night (5pm – 9pm, Saturday, August 6th). Indeed we’re as busy as the bees who will be paying us a visit with their boss (no, not their queen, their boss), The Honey Bee Lady herself.

Fran Demo is bringing in a small, enclosed hive to demonstrate how the magic is made. Her bees produce the nectar of all honeys here in south west Wisco. Come on down to The Pear and try Queen Bee Acres Pure and Natural Honey for yourself. We will be smothering it on fresh baked, homemade sourdough bread. The bread’s name is Tony. Why is the bread called Tony? Well, if you’ve ever kept a sourdough starter alive and healthy, you’ll know it’s like having a pet, and needs to be fed twice a day. Who doesn’t name their pet?

Bread, (Tony), butter and honey. The bee’s knees or bust.

What a tasty old Gallery night we have in store for you!

What’s the Buzz?

Our featured artist Suzette Topper specializes in Wisconsin landscapes painted in acrylics.

Arlene and The Pearettes are delighted to welcome you in joining us at The Pear & Salvage Home for Gallery Night from 5pm – 9pm on August the 6th, 2016.

In a fun and unusual twist, The Pear will literally be buzzing!
Local apiarist Fran Demo from Queen Bee Acres Pure & Natural Honey will be bringing in a small hive and giving a demonstration on how to make honey.
This delicious honey sells out faster than Fran’s busy bees can make it! Complementing the honey is a beautiful new range of beeswax products from GalPaca in Mt. Horeb.
In appreciation of your continued support of The Pear, Arlene has planned a mini-feast of honey-themed appetizers and beverages for your enjoyment.
We invite you to come and try the Queen Bee honey on fresh, homemade sourdough bread, alongside local cheeses, and tasty hors d’oeuvres.
We are also pleased to announce that The Pear will feature Wisconsin landscape artist Suzette Topper who will be on hand to discuss her evocative paintings and cards. Suzette’s work will be for sale, and if you are looking for something truly unique, she offers original artworks by individual commission.
We’d love to see you for what is sure to be a very tasty, intriguing evening.
