dandelion, wild raspberry, bittersweet, asters, clover, and milkweed, along with flowering trees like maple, willow, sumac, and locust, to
create a wonderfully unique, light honey. As August turns to September the bees bring in goldenrod, aster, and Japanese knotweed, producing an
amber, more robust flavored, honey. In cooperation with other beekeepers who have the same standards of beekeeping and honey handling practices,
we bring you the "Bordeaux of Honeys" from across Connecticut. (UPDATED: October 12, 2020)
