The Flowers Of Rogue Honey
Like kids in a candy store, the Rogue Farms Honeybees are feasting on a wide variety of flowers, pollen and nectar this spring.
The next door cherry orchards started the bloom about a week and are still going strong. We’re also seeing tons of wildflowers, too.
Hope you enjoy the photos!
The cherry orchard next to the Rogue Farms Hopyard. When this bloom starts, it almost always marks the beginning of the spring nectar flow.
This kind of variety is good for our honeybees because it provides them with a diverse supply of food sources – good nutrition that helps the honeybees fight off diseases and mites.
When we harvest in late summer and fall, the Rogue Honey will represent all the wild flavors of the Wigrich Appellation. And so will Rogue Farms 19 Original Colonies Mead and Honey Kolsch.
About the only thing more exciting about the spring nectar flow is the summer flow that starts in June. The wild blackberries will be out en masse, and the Rogue Honeybees will be busier than ever.
