We label "Clover", "Orange Blossom","Buckwheat", "Tupelo","Sweet Gum" .......... varietals of honey. And its labeled and sold claiming difference in flavor and we think or label one better than the other? Would we raise cows like this? "Clover cows" "Corn Cows", what i'm saying would any farmer leave their cows to graze strictly on corn for three weeks? No farmers feed cows the nutritional needs of the cow. Commercial beekeepers produce a lot of bees. They don't have time to provide nutritional food, they merely plop them in a spot and hope for the best. they remedy the nutritional deficiencies by applying artificial pollen patties and corn syrup. These hives are nutritionally unhealthy and have a greater chance of succumbing to the problems facing our bees today. To combat the pests they use concoctions of pesticides, some of which are not registered for use in the United States. You are then told one is better than the other.
At our apiary we have planted a specially designed seed mix which produces large quantities of high quality nectar and pollen. Our bees are healthy our honey is raw pesticide free and good for you. We do not have one flower source, We have many!
