About the event
Susan Brand of Mama B's Honey will be setting up her observation hive of lovely ladies for us to appreciate. Susan will be sharing her honeybees, as well as their delicious honey, allowing us to observe the magic and complexity of building and maintaining a hive.
Mama B’s honey is produced locally in Shingle Hollow, NC from a small apiary of less than 10 hives, nestled in a field within a 30 acre forest of tulip poplar, wildflowers and berries. Honey is usually harvested in early June, after the first nectar flow, where bees have foraged for nectar and pollen notably from tulip poplars, blackberries and wildflowers. We believe the darker honey is enriched in both flavor and healthfulness by blending from the natural plants and trees. If the weather and plants permit, a second harvest, rich in sourwood nectar and pollen is extracted in mid-summer.
Mama B’s honey is certified by the NC Beekeepers Association to be unadulterated and locally produced using approved processes for raising healthy bees and pure honey.
