Obviously not native to Western North Carolina, we are fortunate to have a U.S. beekeeper as part of our network who is located smack dab in the middle of the beautiful orange groves of Florida. As one of our most popular offerings, this delicious selection is only produced by bees in the spring when the orange trees are blossoming. While varying in color and flavor from year to year, orange blossom honey is heavily sought for its subtle fragrance and taste of the citrus blooms from whence it has originated. Whether drizzled over your favorite fruit or yogurt, Orange Blossom honey will add the special taste of citrus-soaked sunshine to your day.
Special Note: Florida’s Orange Groves have unfortunately been all but completely decimated by a bacterium called Huanglongbing, which originated in China and prevents green fruit from ripening properly. Since 2004, it is estimated that 5,000 of the state’s 7,000 growers have lost their groves. This devastating pathogen is spread by an invasive tiny insect called a citrus psyllid, and has wiped-out thousands of farmers, packers and processors. Negatively impacting the U.S. Orange Blossom Honey market as well.
In an effort to maintain a reliable supply of some wonderful, tasty Orange Blossom Honey, Whole Hive Honey Company has partnered with an excellent apiary in Brazil for additional raw, Orange Blossom Honey. Your order may be filled with either U.S. or Brazilian honey, depending on availability at the time of order.
