Our Honey is ready!

Our honey bees survived the winter and are strong.  They are happy making honey!  One hive that was weak going into the winter didn’t make it, but the other three are strong, and Glenn started another hive with some of those bees and a new queen.  We will let them store all of their honey so they can build up reserves and go into the winter strong.

The other three hives, however, are strong and making plenty of delicious and nutritious honey.  If you want our pure and natural Bee Branch Farm Honey, get in touch.  This first honey of the season is a poplar/blackberry blend and it is light and very sweet.  The 8oz honey gift jars are $6 each.  You can see a photo of the gift jars on our honey page.  Everyone loves a gift of honey.

See below to learn more about our WNC nectar flow season:  Typical Flowering Season for Nectar Flow.

I find it fascinating to observe the honey bees, and this year they were very interested in our young asparagus.  The asparagus bed was its own little microcosm.  Here is a great description from a fellow beekeeper in Arkansas.
