Frequently Asked Questions
Are We the Bee Keepers?
No, while we do love the bees, we also love not getting stung! We represent several local bee keepers to bring our customers a large variety of seasonal honeys from all over the state.
Is There Pollen in the Honey?
Yes! All raw honey naturally contains pollen from the flowers the honey was harvested from. We do not add any additional pollen to the honey ourselves.
What is the Difference Between the Different Honeys?
Each honey is harvested by the bees from different flowers and in different locations across Arizona. The type of nectar collected by the bees to make the honey, changes the color, texture and flavor of the honey.
How Do You Get Bee Pollen?
When bees land on flowers, small hairs on their legs attract and hold pollen. When the bee keepers set up their hives, they arrange them so that when the bees enter the hive, a portion of the pollen is brushed off the bees legs. This pollen falls to the bottom of the hive where it can dry out and collected by the bee keeper.
Why Does Honey & Bee Pollen Help with Allergies?
Many of our customers with seasonal allergies use pollen and honey to help alleviate their symptoms. Some believe that consuming pollen daily helps build a stronger immune system.
I don't have allergies, why should I consume bee pollen?
Bee pollen can be used as a food supplement. Rich in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, protein and carbohydrates, it has been said that bee pollen is nature’s most perfect food.
Where is the Honey From?
Depending on the season, we work with up to 8 different bee keepers from all over Arizona. The seasons, and the types of flowers that are blooming determine where we are able to get the honey from.
