The thing about urban honey is that the bees forage from a huge variety of trees and flowers, depending entirely on what people are growing in their gardens.
This makes every honey harvest a ‘hybrid’ affair, rather than being a ‘pure strain’ honey like manuka honey, or blackbox honey.
The photo above shows how varied the harvests can be. The honey on the left was harvest in December 2013, while the honey on the right was collected in March 2014. Just four months apart, and all from the one hive, but so different!
We like the surprise that comes with each harvest 🙂
