There is always room for ice cream

Mark Randall, Worldstudio principal, beekeeper and avid ice cream-maker, collaborated with Early Bird Cookery on a pop-up honey ice cream stand at the antique shop, Maison Bergogne, for the Narrowsburg Honey Bee Fest in Narrowsburg, New York on October 10th.

It was a bright, sunny fall day as hundreds lined up for scoops in four flavors sweetened with local honey from Mark’s hives.

The first, of what is planned to be an annual event, is a celebration of all things bee-related and was designed to raise awareness and promote the sustainability of our most important pollinator. Approximately $15 billion a year in U.S. crops are pollinated by bees, among them: almonds, apples, berries, cantaloupes and cucumbers.

The festival included workshops, panel discussions, children’s activities and honey tastings along with honey-themed meals prepared by local chefs.
