Varietal honey stems predominantly from one tree species. A lab pollen analysis can determine the floral origin of honey. Close observation of the seasons and hive contents have also helped us.
HOW DO WE OBTAIN VARIETAL HONEY?
We do not move our bees around or offer polination services, because we don’t want to stress them. Instead, we rely on the copious vegetation surrounding our apiaries, which we also enrich and replenish. The local flora changes as the honey flow progresses, thus making it possible for us to obtain different honeys.
As part of our Sustainable Beekeeping Program, we also buy honey from local beekeepers. Such beekeepers have either been trained by us or share our values when it comes to keeping bees in the least stressful, most nourishing way.
