Hammons Honey with Josh Hammons

Click here for podcast: Episode 10: Hammons Honey with Josh Hammons

On October 21st, 2016, I was able to snatch an interview with Josh Hammons, the owner of Hammons Honey.  It was the end of a farmers market day for him, and he was very kind to take time for an interview.  As you can imagine, he was exhausted from a day’s work already of selling honey, but this doesn’t come across in our conversation.  Josh is very passionate about what he does and I was fascinated by the information he shared, as I hope you will be too. =)

Tea or Tisane with Melissa Hansen

Click for Podcast: Episode 6: Tea or Tisane with Melissa Hansen  

On August 23rd, 2016, I had the pleasure of speaking with Melissa Hansen, owner and
creator of Tea or Tisane, currently a cottage licensed business in Las Vegas, NV.  I was at Downtown 3rd Farmers Market when I stumbled across her booth and entered into a brief conversation about her passion to create tea or tisane blends using things she learned from when she was a child in the mountains of Colorado.

I hope you enjoy our conversation as Melissa shares information about her business, the difference between tea vs. tisane, and a reflection on hospitality.

Sweetpotato Awesome

ColorMeLocal Podcast: Episode 2: Sweetpotato Awesome

On August 3, 2016, I had the pleasure of visiting with Josh Kingdon, the owner of Sweetpotato Awesome, a local business to Las Vegas, NV, that produces freeze-dried sweet potato slices.  We had originally planned to meet in Josh’s kitchen, where he is currently making these delicious bites under a cottage license.  However, the noise from the freeze-dry machine would have interfered with the podcast.  Thankfully, there was a local french cafe close by with a conference room that we could use.  It was a wonderful place to meet.  During our conversation you’ll hear the faint hint of cafe music.

Josh is an easygoing, yet driven small business owner.  He has been persistent in maintaining quality while establishing his business and the excellence of his product speaks to this. Soon these unique slices of goodness will be available for online sale, but for now sales must be completed in person with Josh.  Enjoy this while you can.  He is a business owner you will be glad to meet.  img_9258IMG_9137
