Smoky Mountain Wildflower Honey has an AMAZING light golden color. Killer Bees Honey from our Apiary is different from last year's honey. It is an intense, polyfloral wildflower honey with light, mineral rich notes and tremendous reach. All this as a result of the bees blending tulip poplar and hundreds of other varietal spring nectars. The spicy finish is no doubt due to the chestnut trees hidden deep within the Pisgah forest. This honey will stand up to any food pairing, or just as well all by itself.
Summer Blend Honey is a blend of both our wildflower and sourwood honeys. It is a treasure of every possible pollen and nectar source the bees collected throughout the growing season. Expect a bold, mineral rich, wildflower beginning followed by a long, sweet middle of the tulip poplar tree. It finishes with the flavors of caramel and anise distinctive of the sourwood tree.
We have two nectar flows in WNC; spring wildflower followed by the sourwood season. We add extra honey supers to the hives when the spring nectar flow overwhelms the bees storage capacity. These late spring supers are partially filled until the sourwood tree begins to bloom. The bees backfill these supers, thus creating their own special blend. Most beekeepers would sell this as sourwood. We don’t. We add empty supers for the separate sourwood flow.
