We started harvesting this years honey crop last week. The summer started out with a bang but has slowed to squeak. It looks like another thin honey production year. The bees are doing ok but the honey just isn’t there. We may be short on honey come spring.
On the bright side we did make some unique honey, including the New Mexico Wildflower from this spring. There are about 180 jars left. It’s selling really fast and those who are enjoying it have something really special. We also had bees in an area of Star Thistle. Most would consider this plant a weed but it makes some wonderful honey. The bees were working it along with the yellow sweet clover so we decided to call the honey Star Thistle/Clover. We also made a fair amount of our old stand by, clover. The clover honey this year is exeptionally light in color.
We also have a new crop of Tamerisk. This honey is super dark and rich this year. If it were a beer it would be a Guiness. This honey is very strong in flavor and does not granulate readily.
I will up date the products page soon.
