The 2016 Honey Season – In Full Swing!

As the Savannah Bee Company and our outreach have grown, coupled with the foodie and natural foods products popularity growing rapidly, it seems that we sell out of nearly every honey variety we produce each year. 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…

Orange Blossom Honey

I really, really, really hope I don’t discourage any of my fellow Floridians, but oranges did not originate in the Sunshine State. You folks in Texas and California can also quit your grinning because they didn’t get their start in your states either. In fact, tracing the origin of oranges will take us to the…

Hive Life – The Honeybee Society

To me, the magic of beekeeping is that you get to experience the inner workings of a completely different society, the honeybee society.  We get so caught up in the idea of alien societies that exist in far off space, or past societies in our human history, without giving much thought to the complex societies…

The Legend of Tupelo Honey

Tupelo honey has been our best-selling honey variety from the day we opened our doors over 15 years ago. In large part, Savannah Bee is a company and a brand that owes its success to the legendary reputation of Tupelo honey. Although Tupelo honey does have some powerful rivals within our product-line like Sourwood honey, Raw…

The Buzz About Urban Beekeeping

Just yesterday I bought these gorgeous sunflowers to plant in my home garden near my beehive.  As I began pulling apart the soil, I was alarmed to find a tiny little note tucked deep in the pot that read, ‘these sunflowers have been treated with neonicotinoids!” For those who don’t know, that long word means…
