Honey is incredible. Honey is important.
Honey is the byproduct of bees working to pollinate plants, without which plants would die off and the world would be a gray wasteland. The bees go plant to plant collecting nectar and then return to the hive to create honey. Not only do they make honey, but they make too much honey. More than they need to survive, which in turn we harvest and pass on to you.
On our farm, our bees play a vital part in keeping our production levels up. A quick story, we've had apple trees on our farm for years and production was never very good. In fact we never really had production. Then we got bees, they pollinated the trees, and we had more apples than we knew what to do with. Our bees are very important to us, and with a range of 10 miles, they are important to our neighbors.
Currently we have a limited supply of honey due to a limited number of hives. So keep an eye on our site, because once we sell out for the year we are OUT. We send out updates via our newsletter, consider signing up for more information on our product stock.
