Each glass jar of ELMSWOOD HONEY is 400ml
Three jars per box.
Varroa Mite has not be identified at Elmswood.
Bees this last season have been magnificent honey providors, but are now living with the threat that Varroa Mite is close. I’ve been testing the hives and so far so good. Elmswood Farm is not in the eradication zone.
My bee-buddy and Podcast Bee Therapy Co -host Dani Lloyd-Prichard has been volunteering with NSW DPI Biosecurity and monitoring hives. For so many bee-keepers with a small number hives this is the worst news. Bees for many keepers is therapy. Losing them is horrific. Dani’s Newcastle bees have now been killed.
Our bees are part of the family. The honey we extract is always in small lots as we try to make sure we always leave enough for the bees. After all they make the honey for themselves. It’s their energy source.
Last summer provided an abundance of ground flora and garden plants; poppies, fennel, verbascum, lavender, clover, lots of grasses, crepe myrtle to name a few.
Plus native plants; eucalyptus, callistemon, melia, acacia, angophera.
Every frame of honey is unique. Most of the last honey has now cystalised in the jars. Please remember this does not change the flavour. If you prefer the honey more liquid, heat will change the consistency.
No chemicals are used in the production of our honey.
No heating is used during extraction and jarring.
All hives are managed on Elmswood Farm by me!
