How can someone say it's organic honey when bees can fly wherever they want?
First, the beehives are specifically placed in isolated areas away from any type of contamination (golf courses, agricultural areas, heavy traffic areas, landfills). Secondly, the flying range of a bee is determined by their natural instinct which tells them to stay within approximately a two mile range from their hive location. When they fly out of this range, all sense of direction is lost.
What makes your honey crystallize solid?
Where and what type of plants bees forage on will determine the nutrient level, crystallization, color, fragrance and taste. Y.S. beekeepers have the true knowledge of quality. The results produce a superior, energy packed (intense crystallization) honey with the highest possible levels of live enzymes, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and healing agents as a functional food. Only truly raw state honey that has never been processed will crystallize with intensity and has full beneficial properties nature intended.
