Mary Kosenski and her husband Ed own E&M Gold Beekeepers, LLC. They are suppliers and producers of Jersey Fresh and regional honey products in Monmouth County, N.J. “We use natural and chemical-free beekeeping techniques and also breed our own queens”, as stated on their website, www.emgoldbeekeepers.com,“We supply local retailers and caterers with honey including local and raw honey for those interested in its health benefits, bulk honey for cooking purposes and honey of regional production for those looking for variety. In addition we sell honey soap, beeswax candles, beeswax hand creams and beeswax lip balms. We also sell our honey and beeswax products at New Jersey Farmers markets and New Jersey Craft shows”.
We caught up with Mary at the NJ Beekeeper Association meeting where she spoke of among other things, what its like to get stung! By a queen!
