Thank you for choosing Ally Bees Honey

Where does honey come from?


Here in northeast Georgia, the ‘nectar flow’ (season for harvesting honey) is mid-April through mid-June.  Nectar is the natural ‘sugar product’ produced by the flower and tree blooms that bees gather to consume and store in their hives.  Yes, the bees store nectar in the hive and “fan” the moisture out of the nectar, therefore converting the nectar into honey.  This is an amazingly, extensive process when you realize it takes approximately 8-12 bees a lifetime to make one teaspoon of honey.  Of course, there will be blooms producing nectar throughout other months of the year, but the majority of wildflowers in our beautiful north Georgia area bloom producing the surpass volume of nectar during spring and early summer.
