No 2019 Honey Harvest ☹️

2019 is a rebuilding year for my colonies. Unfortuantely this means no honey harvest at all!

I have two new colonies going into the autumn. I had caught one wild swarm this spring that didn’t make it; these are colonies established with the help of some other local beekeepers. Unfortuantely they haven’t been able to build up enough reserves of honey for them to share with  the humans.

I got into beekeeping to help the bees, with the side benefit of geting to harvest some great honey and beeswax. So I’m glad that I have two happy, healthy colonies! Hopefully these will make it through the winter, and I’ll catch a couple more swarms in the Spring, and I can start harvesting their excess honey!



I purchased two jars as gifts for friends who were specifically looking for local honey and they are still licking their lips!

Just wanted to let you know how delicious the honey is!  Thanks so much.  It’s great drizzled over Greek yogurt!

We love our Sweet Home Alameda Honey! The kids are not the only ones sneaking an occasional spoonful out of the jar ;) It has a delicious tang, and we love that this honey is the product of our local Alameda bees. My daughter proclaimed, "This honey tastes so much better than the honey bear honey!"
