It all started with one hive. From this we produced a fantastic local honey and it became "Medford Gold". Since then have added three more hives, and hope to become a popular beekeeping family business in the south/central NJ region. We now have four hives, new bees, and the flowers are blooming. 2012 was a good year for local honey.we expect that 2013 will be a GREAT year for local honey!
It is hard to believe we have been in business for almost two years now! We have had a successful beekeeping season and great introduction of our "Medford Gold". The buzz is it's a honey like no other! Just ask our bees! We know that 2013 is going to be better than ever and want to thank all our new and returning customers! We look forward to seeing you all in 2013 with our new supply of honey and everything else we carry that is "All Things Bees".
Honeybees Are Important
Few people are aware of the vast importance of the honeybee to our everyday lives. While most think of honey, it is estimated that thirty-three percent of everything that reaches the American table owes a debt to the honeybee. Over 90 fruits and vegetables including apples, melons, nut crops, cherries, berries, avocados plus alfalfa and clover seed for cattle feed are dependent upon honeybee pollination. 85% of the world's polination is done by honey bees.
Bees need a variety of trees, especially hardwood trees, which bloom at different times. Bees are aslo subject to various diseases and have had their numbers drastically reduced by Colony Collapse Disease. We want to promote the importance of the role of the honeybee and preservation of this amazing creature. Our founder, Nick takes a demonstration hive to pre-schools and elementary schools in the southern and central regions of New Jersey to educate young children about the importance of bees and how to be their advocates. There is no charge for this and you can e-mail a request to us. The best times are mid -April through June and September.
