HOW CAN I HELP OUR LOCAL HONEY BEES?
Quite simply by eating and enjoying local honey! Our beautiful local honey gives a wide variety of tastes and each year is different due to the varied weather and diverse floral pollens.
However before you recycle your honey jars please wash them out thoroughly.
Washing honey jars is a big contributor to protect honeybee health. Very occasionally there are spores in honey, especially honey from an unknown source, that are very dangerous to bee health. the spores are completely harmless to humans and do not affect the honey.
