Welcome to Birds & Bees Honey.
Our goal is to provide our local community with 100% natural, raw, chemical-free honey so that they can enjoy all the benefits that nature provides. Our honey is unheated and strained, not filtered, to preserve all the health benefits and its natural flavor. When we extract the honey from our hives, we keep track of the date and what blooms it comes from; then mix the honey to produce delicious light and dark varieties taking advantage of a full year’s bloom variety. Our honey retains the pollen and other natural properties that provide health benefits including helping people with their seasonal allergies. We encourage our customers to research the many benefits of raw, natural honey.
Birds & Bees Honey is chemical free. We do not use any chemical treatment inside our hives to control the pests that have been known to plague honeybees. We use natural treatments, instead. We use many organic treating methods that have been proven to work on our hives. The only drawback to these methods is that they are more labor intensive and require frequent inspections. We cannot control the environment around our bees such as power line sprays or sprays by highway departments, etc. However, if crops are being sprayed in our area, our bees are covered and detained inside their hives until the risk has cleared.
We monitor and move our beehives throughout the year to catch blooms off of blackberries, blueberries, clover, and various flowering trees and vines. We also work with farmers in Jefferson,Lincoln and Cleveland Counties to pollinate local crops and fruits.
