We are always so excited when the first Honey of the season is available. This first batch of honey is a small amount, so the quantities are limited, but it really tastes great. The picture above is the very first bottle so you can see what it looks like, but it is much better to taste it. Place your order now to make sure you get this special honey.
The bees have worked very hard this spring to find flowers that have enough nectar to make honey. Here in the Suwanee, Georgia area, we have had lots of rain and while rain is good, it prevents the bees from flying out to the flowers and sometimes, the rain washes out the nectar from the flowers, leaving little to no nectar for the bees to collect and make honey. So our first batch is not a large quantity, but there is more honey in the beehives – it is just not ready yet.
Since flowers are different, they produce a different type of nectar and that makes the honey taste slightly different every year. Wildflower honey is a unique combination of nectar and pollen from the flowers that our bees can fly to and bring back to the beehive. Wildflower honey will always have slightly different colors and different taste, but what is always the same is the unmistakable rich flavor that comes from local, raw honey. 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.
