Summer Bees

Did you know that during summer, a healthy bee hive will have around 50,000 bees in each colony and the vast majority of those bees are female?
Generally, a hive will have only 1 Queen Bee, a few thousand male bees called Drones, and the rest of the hive will be made up of female Worker Bees.
It is a colony of bees like this that creates the honey we so enjoy. Becuase the bees make perfect honey every time we never go in and change it. This means that our honey is always 100% raw, pure and locally produced so you know you can always count on a high quality food product for you and for family.
