No More Honey for Sweet Alchemy

Mother and daughter business to close



After five honey infusions and five years, Sweet Alchemy is saying farewell. Sandy Billings and Shonna Cunningham, a mother-daughter business team, said, "It was a tough decision because we love our product and love interacting with the community at farmers markets and events. Sandy is a full-time nurse and mother. I am currently using my veterans benefits to attend school full-time and I'm applying for the nursing program in the spring. We just aren't able to give Sweet Alchemy the time it needs to continue to grow and be successful."

If you've fallen in love with their naturally infused honey you can still find some around town. The remaining Sweet Alchemy inventory is at The Workhouse on Scott Street, next to the original Sparrow Bakery. This is your last chance to try these delicious flavors: lemon myrtle, lavender vanilla bean, ginger, cayenne or holiday spice. The holiday spice on goat cheese with crackers is so good!
