beekeeping inspiration: pure spring blossom honey

Mark and Sara Bedillion of Bedillion Honey Farm are some of the trusted advisors who have helped me learn the ropes. They are very generous with their knowledge and were kind enough to show us “behind the scenes” of their working honey farm, where the bees are not the only ones who are busy!
On the day of our visit, they were bottling a new kind of honey: pure spring blossom honey. It was fascinating to watch how the honey is prepared for market, and wonderful to taste the resulting honey. It is light and floral, as you would expect, but complex, with different floral and herbal flavors developing and following one another as they linger on your tongue.

It takes a lot of coordinated bee and human effort to harvest honey at this scale–much bigger than my own tiny operation–but even so, I am inspired and looking forward to the harvest from the hives in my garden.
