At the Showcase of Citrus, we have a professional beekeeper that maintains bee hives throughout the 2,500 acre ranch. We bottle 4 varieties, each with different flavors and benefits.
The hives are kept in the orange grove and the honey has a very distinctive and sweet flavor. Many people will use the orange blossom honey in cooking as a natural sweetener and flavor enhancer for hot teas as well as cold beverages. The orange blossom honey is a wonderful ingredient that also aids in the shaping of desserts due to it viscosity for pastries, puddings, and cakes. Orange blossom honey is a great natural alternative to processed sugar and it never goes bad!
Our saw palmetto honey hives are kept in the very back section of the ranch in the natural woody area. The saw palmetto is a plant native to Florida. The honey is sweet, tasty, and considered to be one of the more favorite flavors.
The wild flower honey hives are kept in a variety of locations throughout the ranch. This honey is made from a blend of the plants and flowers that bloom in the spring and summer months. Therefore, it is a wonderful aid in battling common allergies. Wild flower honey has been used as a natural and safe alternative to chemically made allergy medicines for years. Many people enjoy a tablespoon or more each day to prevent allergic reactions to flowers, plants, and trees.
Gallberry honey hives are kept in various areas throughout the 2,500 acre ranch. The honey is made from the blooms of two similar shrubs in the holly family which typically bloom just after the orange blossoms are present. The plants are an important source of nectar for beekeepers when making a mild flavored, light colored honey, especially in Florida. This honey is used by many athletes as a recovery food. It is also known to have seasonal allergy benefits. Gallberry honey has a very pleasant floral flavor, with faint smoky notes.
