Colorado Honey 8oz
Colorado Mountain Jam buys this meticulously handled, gourmet honey from Epicurean Honey Company, which is located not far from us in Western Colorado. There are 20,000 species of bees on earth, but only a small fraction of them make honey. The species of honeybee used for commercial beekeeping in the United States is known as Apis mellifera. Bees work hard to imbue honey with its magical properties and to ensure they’ll have enough honey to sustain the hive through the winter. When harvesting honey from a beehive, beekeepers try not to take anything the bees will miss. If necessary, beekeepers will feed bees sugar syrup in the autumn to compensate for the honey they take.
