Update from the Home Apiary:
Sourwood Honey is Coming
As you may know, last year there was no sourwood honey crop. We had a plethora of thunderstorms and rain in Northern Georgia. Because of the bad weather, the blossoms on the sourwood fell to the ground. Therefore, there were no flowers for the bees to feed on. When the bees can’t feed on sourwood flowers, there is no sourwood honey to share. This is the downside of working with nature, gathering raw, wild-crafted honey.
