The American Chestnut and the Loss of a Fantastic American Honey

Imagine arriving in North America as an early colonist in the 1700’s. The eastern United States was so vastly different than it is today.

Brewing Honey Beer With Service Brewing Company

Last Wednesday I was invited (okay I invited myself) to the brewing of Service Brewing Company’s new spring seasonal Old Guard. This type of beer is technically known as a Bière de Garde, a northern French style of ale. Service Brewing Company used Savannah Bee Company Yaupon honey in the brew! Also, they cultivated the…

A Swap Meet for Honey Bee Pathogens!

I would like to take a moment to direct your attention to something that is happening right now that not many people are aware of. February is almond season, which means it is also honey bee season. Right now, in the Central Valley in California, two thirds of the honey bee colonies in the United…
