Premium Organic Honey
Good To Know Before Buying Our Honey
Harvesting honey isn’t as simple as opening a hive and taking honey out of it, it demands a lot of knowledge at the beekeepers end. Every crop has its unique nectar which is reflected in the taste, texture, aroma, viscosity and health benefit of the honey. A true beekeeper makes sure that he extracts the honey not too late, or else bees begin to die due to overloaded hive their production slows down, and he does not extract the honey too soon as it would leave the honey with too much foam signifying that it was not ripe.
Some Bee keepers substitute their lack of knowledge by using antibiotics on the bees and some may even feed the bees in the off season with syrups and sugars to increase honey production, this results in the death of the bees and hence they are unable to produce 2nd and 3rd extracts of the season known as 2nd and 3rd cut.
That’s not all, a honey would be of even more of a superior quality if the environment is free from pollutants. This is why the honey from the wild forests has a unique taste, texture, and aroma
We at Queens Garden make sure that our honey comes from the finest area, every batch is checked individually according to our standards of Quality.
We are doing this since 1967 and we know our honey.
