Types of Honey
Beginning the first of April until the end of June, honeybees work many different varieties of flowers. This is the main flowering season for the forest plants and trees. Honeybees will forage 2-3 miles from their hive to collect a mixture of nectars from tulip poplar, blackberry, basswood, black locust, maple, wild blueberries, and hundreds of other flowers. It is the numerous wildflowers which give our Wildflower Honey its unique and special flavor. This honey is light amber in color, has a wonderful floral aroma and is great as a table honey or in your favorite recipe.
Sourwood honey is extra-light to light amber color and extremely aromatic, with a distinctive rich honey flavor. In local markets it commands a premium price. When it comes to quality and taste, no other honey can match Sourwood Honey.
Tupelos are valued honey plants that grow in southeastern part and Gulf Coast of the United States, producing a very light, mild-tasting honey. Tupelo Honey has a sharp taste, known for rarely crytallizing. Lemony, but without the bitterness.
Blackberry blossoms provide this delicate and distinctive taste. Produced from the tiny white flowers that come before the fruit, is light in color and has a distinctive flavor. Fabulous when drizzled on a bagel with cream cheese, pancakes, waffles, ice cream and hot cereals. A true taste delight!
