Partner Product: Bee Wild Honey


In the Mountains of North Georgia, from April until June, the “Bee Wild” bees travel 2-3 miles from their hives to gather nectar of blackberry, tulip poplar, and hundreds of other flowers. This wide variety of nectar sources is what gives Wildflower Honey its depth and complexity, much like a fine Cabernet. Enjoy this treat as a sweetener in tea, with a robust cheese such as goat cheese, or as a glaze on chicken or salmon.

Storage Tip: Apples

Apples are happiest when kept cool at a high humidity. Store them in the crisper drawer in your refrigerator kept in a plastic bag with holes in it or cover them with a damp paper towel. Be mindful about what other produce lives in the crisper, Apples give off ethylene gas with can cause other items to decay faster.
