As part of our business, during the northern spring we sell bees to other beekeepers and provide pollination services to New England apple growers. In order to provide the bees needed for those endeavors, we bring several hundred beehives down to Georgia, granting them a lighter winter and an earlier spring. These bees come back robust and raring for the later spring of the north.
While in the south, we produce Orange Blossom, Gallberry, and Tupelo honey. These southern favorites are a special treat for northerners looking to try a taste of the south, and southerners aching for the flavors of home. Our Southern Honeys are raw, unfiltered and Kosher.
Gallberry (Illex Glabra):
The Gallberry bush grows in vast abundance in the slash pine forests of Southeastern Georgia.
Gallberry Honey, 1-lb jar: $12.00
TUPELO (Nyssa ogeche):
Our Tupelo honey comes from the swampy riverbanks of southeastern Georgia and Florida. This honey is light in color with a mild buttery taste. Tupelo honey will not granulate due to its sugar profile composition. A great table honey.
ORANGE BLOSSOM: :
Our Orange blossom honey comes from the very fragrant nectar of Orange blossoms, which bloom in central Florida during March.
