Where’s the Honey ?
Spring is the time for bees to make honey.
Bees make honey from flowers that bloom in Spring time. The flowers open their petals to invite the bees to come and pollinate them and as a reward, the bee gets to collect a tiny amount of nectar from that flower.
Bees visit many flowers before they take the nectar back to the beehive - an amount that is about less than a drop. It takes lots of bees visiting about a million flowers to just make one pound of honey.
March, April and May is the time when bees collect most of that nectar -Spring time. Nectar is about 70% water. Once the bees reduce the nectar to about 17%, the honey will be ready. Usually, in June, we will be able to collect the honey from the beehives and make it available for you. Make sure you are on our mailing list and we’ll let you know when the honey is ready.
Honey is so good. With all the hard work they do to make the honey, you just have to taste it fresh. That unmistakable rich flavor always comes from local raw honey. Try it. Taste the difference yourself.
The Bee keeper
I am a beekeeper, wood working enthusiast, and fix all things kind of guy (just ask my wife). I have been interested in Honey and bees since I was a kid but did not get into learning about them till much later in life. There is so much to learn and so much to share. That is the reason for this Blog page. To share what I have learned from this journey in keeping bees. Hope you find this information interesting and helpful.
