A hive of bees will fly 90,000 miles, the equivalent of three orbits around the earth to collect 1 kg of honey.
Honey Bees tell the hive distance and direction to food sources by dancing! Who knew bees were so smart?
A pot of honey found in an ancient Egyptian tomb was proved to be as wholesome as fresh honey.
Yes! The scientists are undecided, but our customers are convinced that it is good for allergies. The problem lies in the specialties of the scientists. Many of them believe that bees only get pollen from pretty flowers, while allergies come from weeds and trees. However, beekeepers know that bees gather pollen from all three.
1 Tablespoon per day should do it. The honey can be mixed in tea, spread on toast, or topping your favorite cereal. It doesn't really matter.
Wildflower honey means that the pollen and nectar comes from many flower sources. Since we are not pollinators (we don't move our bees to pollinate other crops) our bees just do their thing around Northern Virginia. Wildflower is usually a dark amber with a very full and rich flavor.
Raw honey has not been pasteurized (pasteurization is a process that destroys microorganisms with heat) or super-filtered to remove pollen. Often mass-produced honey goes through these processes to ensure each bottle is identical in clarity (super filtering) and will not crystallize or spoil (pasteurization). Together, these processes turn your honey into honey-flavored syrup.
There is no set standard for calling honey "raw." Many will partially crystallize their honey to make it look more rustic, thus appear more raw. Honey comes in all different colors and textures depending on the bees' forage sources.
Crystallization is a sign of pure and natural honey. Honey is basically a sugar that bees use honey for their carbohydrates. When bees bring nectar into the hive, they fan it to dehydrate the nectar to under 18% water. That means that there is just not enough water to keep the sugars in a liquid state and crystals form. Refrigerating honey speeds up the crystallization process.
Our #1 goal is to make all of our customers repeat customers, because without you, we would not have our business!
