In the spring there is a select group of blooming trees that honeybees use to make this very special honey. These trees are Black Locust, Tulip-Poplar, Basswood Yellow Wood, Honeysuckle Bush and Sourwood. These indigenous trees secrete an abundance of nectar which produces a light and mild honey.
After the beautiful days of spring have cascaded into the warmth of June, the king of honey plants makes it appearance. Trifolium Repens, more commonly called clover, can be found in your own backyard with its small white blossom. When the weather conditions are right this clover will produce an abundance of nectar, causing the honeybees to work like crazy. The bees will visit tens of millions of blooms daily, transforming this nectar into a mild honey of world-class taste.
In the days following summer another group of wildflowers begin to bloom and the bees make a honey we call Autumn Gold. This honey is composed of a medley of flowers including goldenrod, boneset, ironweed, and aster. The bees will continue to work these flowers until the first frost. During the fall, the bees store food for the winter, so we are careful not to take too much. Depending on the weather conditions, supply of this honey may be limited.
Golden Bullet is a superfood made from the four golden products of the beehive: raw honey, raw bee pollen, royal jelly, and propolis. This substances of the hive have been used by humanity for healing and health since the dawn of recorded history. It can be ingested to naturally help revitalize the body from the strain and stress of illness, athletics, work, and daily life. Golden Bullet may also be used as a wound dressing to sterilize, reduce scarring, and decrease healing time of a cut, abarsion, or burn. The potency of royal jelly and pollen are intact without refrigration because of honey's excellent preservation qualities.
Raw Bee Pollen
Pollen is the male seed of flowers. It is requires for the fertilization of the plant. The tiny particles of pollen form at the end of the stamen in the heart of the blossom. Every variety of flower on the Earth puts forth a dusting of pollen. This includes many of the agricultural food crops. Bee pollen mixed with honey - called bee bread - is the food of the young bee. It is considered one of nature's most completely nourishing foods since it contains nearly all nutrients required by humans. Pollen contains approximately 40% protein of whch half is in the form of free amino acids that are ready to be used directly by the body. Such highly assimilable protein can contribute significantly to one's protein needs.
Bee Bread is a superfood made from raw honey and raw bee pollen. This is the food of all young worker and drone bees. It contains nearly all of the nutrients (vitamins, amino acids, carbohydrates, minerals, and good fats) required by humans. Honey is mixed with pollen to preserve the pollen's potency without requiring refrigeration.
Wax is secreted from bees that are between 12 and 17 days old. The wax of new honeycomb is nearly white, but becomes progressively more yellow or brown by incorporation of pollen oils and propolis. Our wax can be used to make fine candles, beauty products, and much much more.
