WE’RE BACK!! Even though honeybees don’t technically hibernate, there admittedly hasn’t been much to share over the winter. Early signs of spring here in MA, though, have allowed us to confirm that the girls look great! We expect big things this year 🍯💪🏼

In the meantime, there are plenty of beeswax body salves available for purchase. 2oz for $8. DM for details!

We have honey, hunnies! After a 6-gallon harvest this weekend we are ready to rock.

Harvesting involves removing the layer of wax that the bees have “capped” their comb with to keep the honey in the cells, then spinning the comb frames out in essentially a giant salad spinner to extract the honey.

That’s it! NEVER any preservatives or additives whatsoever. It goes straight from the hive to your hands.

DM to order: $8 for 8oz, $14 for 16 oz

One reason honeybees will “beard” like this is if it’s getting too hot for all of them to be inside the hive. Guess the 102 F temp in MA right now is enough to do the trick 😅

Pollen vs. Honey: Winter preparations have begun (sorry, humans, it’s almost here 😭).

Bright yellow pollen will help to feed the babies who are soon-to-be winter bees (and will live 2-4x longer than normal), and the capped honey will add to the adults’ food stock pile.

DM us if you want all-natural honey in YOUR winter stock pile this year 😉

Searching for the Queen 👀

When in need of a new Queen, a hive will prepare several different eggs in what are called Queen cells, making multiple “candidates”. But once hatched, there can only be one👑

So in true Monarch fashion, the first one to hatch kills the other eggs off with her stinger 💁🏻‍♀️ She’ll go on to rule as Queen of the Hive for up to 3 or 4 years!

Afraid of bees? DON’T BE!!

Honeybees are extremely docile and REALLY don’t want to sting you. Their stingers are barbed so for them, stinging you also means having their insides ripped out and imminent death 😦

Golden 🌈 😍

As the seasons change, so do the flower sources. Which means so does the beautiful golden color of honey!

The flavor changes, too - it’s light and flowery in the spring and progresses towards a robust amber in the fall.

Which is your favorite?

Spreading Knowledge Like Pollen:

Honeybees don’t hibernate in the winter - they remain active all year. In the hive, they vibrate in a ball around the Queen, creating enough energy so that even on the coldest of winter days it’s 70+ degrees in there!

Running out of ways to eat your honey?

Try an easy honey-glaze for salmon (or to eat with a spoon...not saying we’ve done that...)

1/2 cup of Honey, Just Bee
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 garlic clove, grated
1 1/12 piece of ginger, thinly sliced

Simmer honey, soy, garlic and ginger while stirring frequently on medium heat, about 5 minutes. Let cool.

Preheat the oven to 400. Marinade salmon for 10 minutes, then transfer salmon to a greased pan. Strain remaining marinade, simmer back on the stove for 5 minutes, then drizzle half on top of the salmon.

Bake drizzled salmon for 5 minutes, then remove.Turn broiler to high and return salmon to broil for 1-2 minutes or until cooked.

Drizzle remaining marinade on top before serving and enjoy!
