Honey to look forward to
Did you know that honey is different every year? The single most important factor that affects honey is the weather. How is this possible?
As we move from Winter to Spring, the weather gives us the cold, the rain and eventually the warmth to entice the flowers from trees, shrubs and ground cover to begin to bloom. Sometimes flowers bloom early or late depending on the weather. These variations produce variations of nectar that is available for bees to collect and make into honey. Our climate changes the taste, the consistency and color of honey every year.
Honey is like a recipe. With a little bit of this and a lot of that, your recipe will have a certain taste and consistency. If you change the amounts of any part of that recipe, it will come out completely different. That is what happens to honey. The weather can cause a certain flower to bloom earlier before other flowers and therefore the bees will collect more of that flower's nectar than another. The honey could be lighter or darker and with a different taste. So every year we look forward to the new honey.
Pure Wildflower honey is a unique collection of nectars and pollen specific to the area and to the time of year. We harvest honey twice a year - Spring and Summer. The honey from each season is different because the bees collected nectar from different flowers blooming at that time. What remains consistent year after year is our honey will be the freshest of the season. We strain our honey. It is not micro-filtered. Honey should contain the micro amounts of pollen and nutrients so we can benefit from what nature provides.
There are a few jars of honey from the 2018 season available now if you need something to carry you till June. We will post here when the next season's honey is available.
Please check out our website as there is a new item on the menu: Honey with Honeycomb inside. It comes in a one pound jar and there are just a handful of jars remaining. Remember that we also have lip balm, beeswax candles and hand cream available too.
Pure, raw wildflower honey is a mixture of nectar and pollen from the local flowers of the area. Our honey is strained (not micro filtered) to ensure the best benefits of local, raw honey remain inside the honey.
Taste the difference yourself.
Welcome to Double Bee Honey.
I am a local beekeeper in Suwanee, GA that collects honey and beeswax from my bees. They work very hard to make the best tasting honey. Try it yourself. Taste the difference of raw, local, wildflower honey.
Honey, beeswax candles, lip balm, and hand & body cream are available for purchase.
