Our specially formulated seed mix includes 10 flower and legume varieties that benefit honey bees as well as other pollinators like butterflies and bumble bees. We collaborated with the Bee & Butterfly Habitat Fund to formulate a mix that is quick to germinate, easy to tend and will provide great forage for up to a decade! Mix will support up to 2.5 hives per acre and is designed for planting zones 3-9, working the best in zones 4-8. Plus, $2 from every pound of seed mix goes directly to the BBHF!
All Bottled Up After the bottling (and some cleanup) came the time to put labels on our honey. What I did not know before bottling is that in order to sell your honey, it needs to be properly labeled according to federal, state and local specifications.
