Save the Honey
Many of our honey varieties are sourced from areas of "dwindling habitat." Real estate development, commercial timber operations, fires and infringement of man have begun to decrease the native habit of the honey bee that once grew rampant in untamed forests. Without conservation efforts, your favorite variety of honey may become a thing of the past.
Save the Bees
Honey bees are one of God’s most fascinating creations. During the adult life span of a worker bee (about 45 days during the summer months) she will make countless trips to collect nectar from numerous flowers to produce approximately 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey.
The worker bee extracts nectar from flowers and stores it in “honey sacks” located in the abdomen and then deposits the nectar into honeycombs located in the bee hive. The worker bee then fans the nectar with her wings to evaporate excess water. When the honey has aged wax is used to seal it in the comb.
Save the Beekeeper
When you buy local honey you are supporting beekeepers and their efforts to maintain and increase the healthy hives of honey bees! No one is a bigger or better advocate for the honey bee than the beekeeper as his way of life depends on these remarkable insects.
