What’s In Your Natural Raw Honey?

Beyond adding a touch of natural sweetness to what you eat, natural honey contains natural enzymes that act as a probiotic, soothing the stomach and aiding in digestion.  So what else will you find in natural honey?  Honey contains mainly fructose (about 38.3 percent) and glucose (about 31.0 percent).   An average honey is 17.1 percent water.  In addition, honey contains a range of vitamins, such as vitamin B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin and pantothenic acid.  Honey also contains essential minerals like calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and zinc as well as several different amino acids are all found in natural honey. Research has show that unlike most other sweeteners, honey contains small amount of a wide array of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants. So drizzle  a spoonful of honey into your Greek yogurt and get a dose of nutrients which keep the immune system functioning robustly.

We want to thank everyone who came out to the grand opening/ open house held at our honey shop last week.
It was great to meet many of you.  Congratulations to Sarah M. from Fort Erie, Ontario, who won a fabulous gift basket full of our great products.  We had a lot of fun doing this. We hope to have an open house again during the Christmas holiday season.  Look for an announcement for date and time coming in the fall.

Honey Shop is Open

The Bee and Me Honey ShopWell, the time has finally arrive.  Construction on our new retail honey shop was finished last week.  I started moving products in this weekend!  We are all very excited to have our customers visit us and view all our wonderful products.  Along with all our honey products, we will also have a great selection of beeswax candles and natural skin care products.   I will also be adding products made right here in our local area.  Great products like 100% pure grape juice produced in Beamsville and Hearts and Bones Organic Dog Treats. I am also very excited to bring in a body balm from Vintage Tradition.  This body balm is the best cream I have seen for eczema and sensitive skin.  It came highly recommended by my Naturopathic Doctor, Laura Margaritas.  All ingredients are produced at or beyond organic standards.

There is a grand opening planned for Wednesday June 19th with a free gift for the first ten customers and refreshments.  We will also be offering some sale prices on our honey.  If you like to really save money when buying local honey, we will endeavour to have a "fill your own jar".  Just bring a clean glass jar and have it filled with our delicious Golden Wildflower Honey for $7.50 Kg.

The Bee and Me HoneyOur honey shop will be open from Tuesday to Saturday.  We are located in the small town of Dunnville, Ontario.  Our address is 8053 Hwy. 3.  If you are in the area stop on by, we would love to see you.

And a reminder I will be at the Dundas Farmers' Market this Thursday afternoon from 3 pm to 7 pm. The Dundas Market is located behind the Dundas Public Library.  I will be bringing all our honey and beeswax products and farm fresh eggs.  Hope to see our all our customers again this year.
