Bee Wild - Wildflower Honey
Captures the essence of spring with floral aromas of mountain wildflowers. With subtle flavors of licorice and orange, it would go very well with a soft cheese like Humboldt fog.
In the Mountains of North Georgia, from April until June, bees will travel 2-3 miles from their hives to gather the nectars of Blackberry, Tulip Poplar, and hundreds of other flowers. These wide variety of nectar sources is what gives Wildflower Honey its depth and complexity, just like a fine cabernet. Enjoy this treat with a robust goat cheese or as a glaze on chicken or salmon.
About the Producer:
Bee Wild is an extension of the family business and a labor of love. It grew out of a longing of its founder, John Wright, to share his roots with an urban audience. John grew up in the stunningly beautiful North Georgia mountains, son to a second generation bee farmer. When John’s Grandfather (the first beekeeper) passed away in 1977, John’s dad decided to go into the honey business full-time, quadrupling the size of the honey house. Now John endeavors to share his and his father’s passion with a wider audience. Lucky for the rest of us!
