Royal Jelly – A Feast Fit For A Queen

Much like humans, a bee’s diet is a huge indication of what their body shape will eventually come to be. Worker bees, for instance, eat beebread (a combination of pollen and nectar) and honey.  This food gives them sustenance and strength to fly for miles while prohibiting them from developing reproductive glands. Drones, or the…

Honeybees and the Hexagon

How honeybees came to be mathematicians. The home of a honeybee is a palace of gold.  Wall to wall, honey gleams through the hive, casting with it the aroma of sweet earth, the nectar of two million flowers, and fresh warm beeswax.  Architecturally, a beehive’s perfect repeating hexagonal pattern is constructed more precisely than any…

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 . There is almost always a significant cost difference between all-natural handmade soap and factory produced “commercial” or “big brand” bar soap. So, what gives! Interestingly, the difference in price and quality can basically be distilled…

The Great Bee Garden Tour

The alternate name for this blog is, “If I Have Too Much Fun on This Job Will They Fire Me or (Even Worse) Re-assign Me Somewhere Else?” To explain, I have the joy of working in the Wilmington Island Showroom 211 Johnny Mercer Blvd. in Savannah, GA.  I understand that all of the other Savannah…

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…
