The fields at the Beatty farm are a mix of alfalfa, red clover, wild strawberries, wild blackberries, dandelion, apple, and lilac blossoms which the bees collect nectar hence, the name Summer Wildflower Honey. The taste and composition of wildflower honey varies depending upon the predominant variety of flowers in bloom at the time the nectar is collected. Summer Widlflower honey and Spring Blossom Honey is produced by the same honeybee colonies and the same fields with the only difference being the time of the nectar and pollen collection. Summer Wildflower honey consists of nectar from plants that have blossomed during the full summer months. Spring Blossom honey is taken from the hives during mid-summer which means it consists of honey made from plants that have blossomed in the spring and early summer.
Our guiding principle is to Never Blend Honeys. We don't mess with mother nature! We offer our customers honey exactly as nature creates it. Each plant, each season, each geographic location contributes to the characteristics of honey. We are not looking for consistency in our honeys - we look forward to the different favours. This is why we collect wildflower honey at different times - to capture nature's finest from the different plants blossoming at different times.
