Wildflower Honey

Wildflower honey is exactly what it sounds like. Derived from a variety of wildflowers and plants which are blooming during the Spring and Summer months in the Northwest Florida panhandle. Our Wildflower Honey has a sweet medium to full-bodied flavor that is great for breakfast, dessert, or whenever sugar is used.  It is said to be the best honey for allergies because of the dozens of diverse flowers and trees from which the honey bees gather nectar. It is usually light amber in color.   However, color and flavor will vary from season to season and year to year depending on the weather and the most abundant plants and trees producing nectar. honeycomb

Tupelo

Tupelo Honey

Tupelo honey is produced from the White Ogeechee Tupelo (nyssa ogeche), which ranges through the Ogeechee, Apalachicola,Chipola, Ochlockonee, Choctawhatchee and the Chattahoochee River Basins in Northwest Florida. These river valleys are the only place in the world where Tupelo Honey is produced commercially. Bee hives are placed along the river’s edge. The bees fan out through the surrounding Tupelo blossom rich swamps during April and May and return with the nectar to produce tupelo honey. Pure Tupelo honey has a light amber golden color with a slight greenish cast. Virtually all tupelo honey is produced in the 850 area code, and it’s popular all over the world. This honey is a choice table grade honey with a delicious flavor with a delicate distinctive taste.honeycomb
