As of April 1, 2017, commercial honeybee colonies in the U.S. increased 3 percent up to 2.89 million compared with the previous year, as reported by the Agriculture Department.  A number of hives have had been lost due...

How Pesticides Can Decimate Honey Bees

Where did all the bees go? Honey bees have been dying off in the past decade at an alarming rate. Similar trends are also visible across other species of wasp, butterfly, and beetle.

Bees Inn Manuka Honey Review for 2017

% Bee's Inn Manuka Honey Score UMFHA License #1040 Bee’s Inn is yet another authentic manuka honey brand out of New Zealand. It is UMF certified, it is pure, and it only comes in a 250g (8.8oz) jar. Also, just so you are not surprised, so far it is only available as UMF 15+ grade. How It All Started For Bee’s Inn If you are doing some research on this honey, do not be surprised when the name Tuff Bear pops up. This is the actual importer of the honey, not the manufacturer. So, if you live outside of New Zealand, you will be buying the honey from the importer, not directly from the manufacturer. Even though, this does affect the price, this manuka product still manages to stay competitive when compared to Tahi, Happy Valley and other brands of similar quality. I was pleasantly surprised by the responsiveness of the vendor and by the double sealed package that the product arrive in. I had some general questions about the process in which the honey is being distributed around the world. I wanted to know if it is actually packaged only once and if it has been packaged in New Zealand. The answers to both questions were an affirmative YES. Read Customer Reviews The reason I ask this, is because some small companies in New Zealand allow distributors to...

The two young entrepreneurs begun their honey journey more than 35 years ago. Starting with only 3 hives, they managed to grow their business and begin exporting their tasty product overseas. How It All Started For Steens Dr. Peter Molan’s research on the unique anti-bacterial properties of manuka honey was a turning point for Steens business model. In the mid-1980s, the company decided to focus entirely on the production on high quality manuka honey.

Steens became one of the founding members of the Active Manuka Honey Association (AMHA). Their commitment to improving the honey industry has been well recognized over the past 30 years. The company now plays a very integral part of the manuka industry in New Zealand. Located in the North Island of New Zealand, to this day Steens remain one of the largest beekeeping operations in the world. Not too bad for an ex-butcher and an ex-teacher!
