The Sweet Smell of Honey.....



We have completed our first honey season! My husband grew up around beekeeping and decided to give it a try. We began with 2 hives of bees in March and by July had our first frame of honey! It is a beautiful amber and it is oh so delicious!!!! We could not take any more this first year as the bees have to have honey to feed on through the winter. Next year we will be able to get lots of honey from them.

A couple weeks ago when he checked on the hives, one hive had died!!!! We are now down to one hive and they are doing really well.

We had some labels designed for our bottles! I think they turned out great!!!! We wanted something besides the standard yellow and black bee themed label.

Let me know what you think!!!

Have a great weekend!

Sorry to hear about the one hive dying, but I'm so glad that the other hive is doing well. Congrats on your honey business!!!

Oh I love honey...so yummy! Your label is great..very clean and simple but doesn't scream "bubble bee". Good luck next year.

Sorry to hear about the one hive dying but how fun of a thing to do....do you have to process the honey some way? or can you just eat it right out of the hive? Love the labels! They are very beautiful!! Good luck next year...I hope its super "Sweet" =:O)
