Many Colors and Flavors of Honey
The Honey Flow generally begins the end of June and continues through the end of September or so. It all depends on the weather! Miel Urban Beekeeping is no different to other agricultural pursuits in regard to its dependence on the weather!
The family chooses to extract honey from the hive every 10 days or so throughout the honey flow. The result is a variety of colors and flavors! Customers familiar to Miel tend to have their favorite time of the season to order! Colors of honey range from very light to dark. Flavors vary from delicate to robust. Honey purchased early in the season tends to be lighter, getting darker and more robust as fall flowers begin to bloom.
Honey is a seasonal product and available only while supplies last.
