If you’ve spent any time at our East Nashville Farmers Market at all, you’re sure to have seen Mr. Thurman. Per his apron, he’s known as the “Old Drone”, but sales representative Thurman Harris comes across as dear and sincere – “old” is not the first descriptive that comes to mind. When I interviewed him for this highlight, he shyly told me how he doesn’t use computers or have an email address. There is no web site for the business, but the product is delicious nonetheless!
His table offers a variety of bee products and the honey is packaged in a multitude of sizes. He has honeycomb as well as pollen available for purchase. The jarred honey is available in Wildflower, Orange Blossom, and the diabetic-friendly Tupelo (from the blossoms of the Tupelo tree).
Additionally, honey sticks are a favorite delight at his table. My brother-in-law loves to keep them at his desk to add to his tea at the office. I’ve seen several little ones make a bee-line (pun intended) for the table begging for one as a treat. They come in traditional honey as well as several flavors: apple, grape, blueberry, raspberry, and cherry.
Drop by the table today to chat with Mr. Thurman and peruse the sweet treats!
