The Sweetest Harvest
This lovely short features the careful harvest of honey and the simple joy of eating the sticky nectar of bees.
We humans have been harvesting honey for a very long time. Using patience, a steady hand and a little bit of bravery, we move among the busy bees to collect the sweet product of all their work. The Tiger in a Jar team perfectly captures that tempo and dedication.
Is there anything better than fresh, locally harvested honey? Is there anything prettier than the dazzling geometry of a honeycomb? I think not…

THE FILMMAKERS: Tiger in A Jar by name has only been around for a little while, but Matt and Julie have been creating for years. We were married in 2009, and started running TIAJ full time at the beginning of 2011. We document life through film and pictures, and enjoy spending time in the kitchen obsessing over food.
