The Walters Family keeps bees in some lovely spots around Duluth, MN, with friendly neighbors who love gardening. They grow organic veggies, herbs, and have lots of fruit trees, bushes, and flowers – perfect food for our bees! We’ve got four bee yards within Duluth’s city limits.
Because of all the different plants, our bees can collect nectar from, the honey tastes unique throughout the season. We put some of our honey in special jars called Muth Jars. They look like old-timey jars from the pioneer days. You can get our honey in three sizes: 4 oz., 8 oz., and 1 pound.
If you’re in Duluth, you can bring back your empty 8 oz. and 1-pound Muth jars for a refill. It’s a great way to help the environment and save a bit of money.
The honey season usually kicks off by late June and goes on until around September, but that can change depending on the weather. Just like other farming activities, beekeeping relies on Mother Nature.
Our family likes to collect honey from the hives about every ten days during the honey season. This method gives us a range of honey colors and flavors. People who know Miel well often have their favorite time to order honey. The honey can be super light to kind of dark, and the flavors can be mild or strong. If you get honey early in the season, it’s usually lighter, and as we move into fall, it gets darker and richer in taste.
Miel Honey is a seasonal product and available only while supplies last.
