Blue Shoes Honey

Blue Shoes Honey

Brian Lacey

Blue Shoes is a family business where our goal is to produce a superior quality, artisanal honey while treating our bees with love and respect. At a time when many businesses believe that bigger is better, our bees have taught us that small is beautiful. We plan to maintain a modest operation that serves the local community and allows us to treat our bees as partners rather than possessions. To guarantee the purity of our honey we never use synthetic chemicals or antibiotics on our bees. Our honey is cold-processed (Raw) or minimally heated (Liquid) in small batches to preserve its pollen content, unique floral character and living enzymes.

In gratitude to honeybees and all pollinators, 10% of our profits are donated to pollinator research and conservation efforts.

Art Is In Bakery

Art Is In Bakery

Kevin and Stephanie Mathieson

Kevin Mathieson is a classically trained pastry chef with serious chops in the kitchen. He and his wife Stephanie, created Art Is In Bakery as a place to nourish their shared passion for food.

Dense, delicious, naturally leavened, exquisite loaves made from scratch is the heart and soul of what we do, and where it all began. But there is much more to Art Is In Bakery than bread; we also offer a large selection of mouth-watering, handmade viennoiserie inspired by the fine boulangeries of Paris. Our edgy café-bakery breakfast and lunch menu features egg dishes, gourmet sandwiches, soups and daily specials. We start with real ingredients, and sometimes swerve in wildly decadent directions with one goal in mind. Making you happy. Every day.
