Clover Honey is a Classic Favorite
Every day in our Honey House, people come in out of curiosity. When they arrive they make it clear that they are interested in "normal" honey. We offer a tasting and start with Clover which makes wonderful every-day "normal" honey.
Clover Honey is varietal honey familiar to most people by name, that makes a wonderful table honey. Varietal Honey (made with nectar from one type of crop) are true labors of love by the beekeeper who carefully sets hives in the center of cultivated fields for bees to provide pollination for just the brief time of blossoming. Since bees will fly 2-6 miles to find nectar, the challenge in achieving varietal honey is to provide enough crops of one type to satisfy the hive to prevent them from further foraging. When the crop finishes blossoming, the beekeeper collects the hives, allows the honey to cure and processes the honey. Varietal honey tastes different from region to region, the fun is in collecting honey from everywhere and comparing the flavors.
