CUESA's Weekly E-Letter | June 15, 2018
Preserving the Legacy of Marshall's Farm
Next week is National Pollinator Week, a time to celebrate the vital role of bees within our ecosystems and agriculture. And there are few people in the world who have advocated for bees as sweetly as Spencer and Helene Marshall of Marshall's Farm Natural Honey. Through Bay Area farmers markets like the Ferry Plaza, the Marshalls have educated thousands of market-goers about the importance of bees, with a focus on their delicious varietal honeys, sourced from our Bay Area food shed.
Since Helene's sudden passing two years ago, Spencer has been beekeeping and running the honey business on his own, and he is getting ready to retire. The farm is for sale, and the family is looking for a buyer who will carry on what the Marshalls started. Helene's daughter, Tamara Rubin, shares why the Marshall's Farm legacy is so important to preserve.
