Transcript of Season¢â‚¬â„¢s Greetings! - Champlain Valley Honey...

  • Season’s Greetings!

    We are happy to report that 2018 has been a good year for our bees. We came through the winter with 15-percent losses, which in this day and age, is quite reasonable. Our bee popu- lation built up quickly in the spring and was able to take full advantage of the honey flow. A short drought gave us pause but it also gave the birdsfoot trefoil, a legume similar to clover and alfalfa, a chance to grow quickly, ahead of the grasses. When some rain finally did come, it produced a wonderful late sum- mer honey flow in much of the Champlain Valley.

    We had good success raising bees and were able to get our num- bers back up to 1,000 colonies. I owe much of this year’s success to the hard work of my crew. Levi, Sawyer, and I work with the bees while Cee and Deb kept the shop going and the orders flowing. Sawyer will be moving on soon and will be missed. He is a hard, strong worker who took to the bees with ease and gives us great faith in our next generation of workers. And, I want to give honorable mention to my daughter (working part time), my father, and my wife who all have pitched in whenever called upon.

    Going into winter our bees are healthy and their honey stores are heavy. With Mother Nature’s good graces they will greet us next March with that beautiful “BUZZ” that lets us know that they are still here and the work has just begun.

    Wishing you all the very best,

  • Honey Simple Syrup Ingredients Honey and hot water

    Directions Heat 2 parts honey to 1 part hot water in a saucepan over medium-low heat until the mixture reaches a simmer. Remove from heat and cool. Store at room temperature or refrigerate as desired. Lasts 4 weeks in the refrigerator.

    Tip While the mixture is simmering, infuse the syrup with herbs, spices, citrus peels or other aromatics. (Rosemary, grapefruit peel, peppercorn, pomegranate seeds and vanilla bean are just some of the possibili- ties.) Cool and strain the infused syrups before using.

    The honey bee is the only insect that produces food eaten by man. Honey is the only food that includes all the substances

    necessary to sustain life, including enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and water; and it’s the only food that contains “pinocembrin”, an antioxidant associated with improved brain functioning.

    Honey starts as flower nectar collected by bees, which gets broken down into simple sugars stored inside the honeycomb. The design of the honeycomb and constant fanning of the bees’ wings causes

    evaporation, creating sweet liquid honey – National Honey Board –
