The pedigree of honey Does not concern the bee….

A clover, any time, to him Is aristocracy. So observed the keen Ms. Emily Dickinson.

We had our best honey year yet on Bee Branch Farm. Even with two swarms spiraling away this spring, we were able to make an additional hive by splitting two hives. Thus, we still have the three hives that made it through last winter, and now have an additional one to head into this winter. We were able to collect three honey harvests this year. The June honey was a light and sweet clover and poplar, the July honey was a golden toned wildflower with a hint of citrus, and the August honey was the lovely and oh so tasty sourwood and clover. We just finished labeling the final sourwood/clover honey gift jars and have a few available if you want honey for yourself or to give the sweetest gift one can receive. If you aren’t already on our honey “to notify” list and you want to be, let me know. Our honey sells out very quickly. 

With much gratitude to our hard-working bees and our honey-loving customers,
