July is National Blueberry Month, so we are turning the spotlight on to our Blueberry Honey.
Our Blueberry Blossom Honey comes from the Eastern Shore of New Jersey, where honeybees pollinate highbush blueberry crops. There are no additives to this honey to make it taste like blueberry. The flavor comes straight from the nectar of blueberry blossoms. This light to medium amber honey has a sweet, buttery taste with a hint of berry. It is tasty honey that adds flavor and dimension to a variety of dishes.
Blueberries are a crop that benefit from the bees help with pollination. Increased berry production is a result of the bees buzzing around the bushes. Bees gather the nectar from the blueberry bush that help create this distinct honey. The fruit output increases up to 1000 pounds per acre when the mighty honeybee is on-hand to help.
If you are interested in planting your own blueberry bushes, there are lots of resources to browse to learn more about optimum growing conditions.
