What Is a Bee Smoker?

When people first find out that I’m a beekeeper, I often receive the same question. “How do you keep from getting stung all the time?” This curiosity is valid, as you would expect opening a hive of 60,000 + bees to be tremendously dangerous. Couple that with the fact that 1 out of every 3…

The Many Faces of Wildflower Honey

Wildflower honey is something that I believe everyone has probably seen, but most do not really understand. I am sure that they get the general concept but not the whole incredible wildflower honey picture. Everyone knows that it is honey, produced from the nectar, that the bees have gathered from multiple flower sources or varieties….

Winter White Honey and Christmas in July

Years ago, Savannah Bee introduced our now best-selling Winter White honey. Winter White honey is a whipped or creamed honey variety. This means that we use a large mixer to whip air into the honey which changes the honey’s color and texture. It is 100% pure raw honey, white, smooth, spreadable and absolutely delicious! This honey…

Palmetto Honey

I mentioned in an earlier honey post that Leatherwood honey is probably my favorite honey. This is true…mostly. You see, every May the Sabal palmettos flower and by the end of June we harvest, in my opinion, the very best honey in the United States. Sabal palmetto (also know as cabbage palm or Carolina palmetto)…

An Update From the Savannah Bee Apiary and Bee Garden

Summer in Savannah is hot. Like seriously hot. The temperature today was 98 degrees today and the heat index was 114 degrees. Our bee garden has a 6-foot tall fence around it that blocks all the wind coming in from the nearby marsh. The air doesn’t flow very well and once you are out there…

Keeping Our Fingers Crossed for Sourwood Honey

Sourwood honey is a wonderful single-varietal honey, typically produced in the southern Appalachian region of the United States. The Sourwood tree blooms in August, so the Sourwood honey harvest comes at the very end of the summer. In fact, Sourwood honey is the second to last honey we bottle each year, the last being our…

Queen’s Libation Cocktail

This time of year in the South requires one thing of all who venture outdoors: an icy cold beverage. With that in mind, I set out to concoct a seasonal cocktail befitting all warm weather activities. I present to you the Queen’s Libation. I pureed raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries together and made a simple syrup…

The Savannah Bee Mead Bar

A couple of years ago Savannah Bee sought a new kind of alcohol permit, one that had never been issued in the city of Savannah. Eventually, Savannah Bee obtained the new permit and the city’s first mead tasting bar was opened. From opening day the Mead Bar at Savannah Bee was a huge success. In…
