Honey isn’t on press’ radar and isn’t reported in financial media. But if ever there was a story to exemplify the simple economics of supply and demand, it would be the current honey market. There is a glut of honey on the world market with the price falling to lows not seen in this century….

Sourwood Honey Season Is Upon Us!

It’s that time of year again when we start thinking about Sourwood honey. Sourwood honey is typically known as an Appalachian Mountain region honey. Although the range of the Sourwood tree (Oxydendrum arboreum) extends from Pennsylvania to Louisianna, stands large enough and concentrated enough to produce monofloral Sourwood honey are primarily found in the upland forest regions…

Handmade Honey Bar Soap

My customers often ask me – what are the main differences between commercially produced bar soap and handmade bar soap .

Honey, like any other agricultural product, is produced in a limited or finite amount each year. This limitation is…

Session Mead Varieties at Savannah Bee

As mead grows in popularity the popular styles will wax and wane. I think hydromels, or low alcohol strength meads, are rising to the top. Hydromel literally means water-honey and is likely the original mead style. Contemporary hydromels are easy to drink and often carbonated, making them more similar to beer than wine in how…
