Our raw Summer Blend Wildflower mountain honey is crafted from organic apiaries high atop the Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina. Nutrition-packed with a delightfully fierce floral flavor, this toxin-free, all-natural honey is as good for you as it is delicious.
We never purchase honey from other beekeepers. We control and manage the process of honey production from hive to bottle to your table. Never heated, ultra-filtered, blended, flavored or infused. Gravity filtered to keep in all of the goodness the bees intended. Our honey is tested by independent labs to ensure it is 100% toxin-free and to ensure no adulteration or agrotoxins (pesticides, herbicides, or antibiotics). Our honey is glyphosate free per QAI Labs! NMR-Spectroscopy report for our Sumer Blend can be examined here. Toxicology report, here.
Our 2023 Summer Blend Wildflower Honey is a midsummer batch from the Killer Bees Honey home apiary. It has the same intense, robust flavor of our signature spring, raw Smoky Mountain Wildflower Honey, only slightly sweeter. There are several reasons for this. First, it possesses 20% clover nectar. Secondly, as the tulip poplar bloom ages, it produces more glucose. Lastly, the hive girls finished off the honey combs with sourwood which was just beginning to bloom when we pulled the supers. You thus get a rich, caramel flavor ending. All of these factors make for a robust, but sweeter addition to our 2023 spring honey lineup. No limits on this seriously delightful honey - the bees were dangerously busy on this floral source!
With a Pfund scale of 73mm, it's a beautiful, semi-dark "light amber" nectar presenting with a semi-translucent, apricot color. A phenomenally low moisture level 0f 15.1% creates a rich, sweet flavor with a velvety smooth texture.2 Bottle Sizes:
