Getting bees ๐Ÿ ready for almond pollination calls for some hive work placing pollen patties where needed. Now what is a pollen patty?! These pollen patties are used to help feed brood (bee larvae) indirectly through promoting increased royal jelly production, which is the initial food source of the bee larvae. With more food source available brood rearing is stimulated thus increasing hive population.

New babies are similar to the start of the new year. Lots of new possibilities, excitement for what is to come, anticipation for the changes to your life & a little fear that things wonโ€™t go as planned (I already know they wonโ€™t ๐Ÿ˜). As you know we are having another daughter in February, which will bring some change to how things operate around the hive. 
Now that school is back in session itโ€™s time to come out of hibernation with honey deliveries resuming this Wednesday & Saturday. I will be gearing up over the next couple weeks to have all of our items available for Valentines Day gifts! (Stay tuned ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ’˜๐ŸŽ) I also plan to take some time away from all sales/deliveries after February 10th, so get your orders in!!!

My husband really is the best & made me my own workstation for Christmas! When a pack rat is married to a Marine, this is what you get.

My mustache wax model ๐Ÿ˜ His scent of choice is cedarwood & Iโ€™m just happy he is grooming that wild beast! Itโ€™s amazing what a little wax ๐Ÿ can do to keep those whiskers out of the way.

So I have thought about offering a way for local honey ๐Ÿฏlovers to have another way to buy our products other than deliveries/pickups. Offering Honey House Parties this Holiday season is something I have tossed around. The idea is to offer a few weekdays through December for people to be a Hive Hostess ๐Ÿ& invite guests of their choosing to shop our items (& possibly a few other local small businesses ๐Ÿ˜‰). Go to our story & give us some feedback through our 2 polls!! #honeyhouse #honeyhouseparty #sweetgifts #hivehostess #hostyourhive #honeyparty #rawhoney #localhoney #beeswaxproducts #beelady #beekeeperwife #shafferapiaries

Offering Honey House Parties this Holiday season is something I have tossed around. The idea is to offer a few weekdays through December for people to be a Hive Hostess ๐Ÿ& invite guests of their choosing to shop our items (& possibly a few other local small businesses ๐Ÿ˜‰). Go to our story & give us some feedback through our 2 polls!! #honeyhouse  #honeyhouseparty  #sweetgifts  #hivehostess  #hostyourhive  #honeyparty  #rawhoney  #localhoney  #beeswaxproducts  #beelady  #beekeeperwife  #shafferapiaries 
The best part of Shaffer Apiaries ๐Ÿis getting to work alongside this incredible husband of mine!

In the U.S. there are more than 300 different varieties of honey ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿ˜ณ So how do you get different varieties of honey? 
Flowers produce nectar in order to attract pollinators such as honeybees ๐Ÿ The worker bees take this nectar & produce honey through a chemical process using enzymes from their hypopharyngeal glands. The varying shades, flavors and aromas of honey depends on the plant pigments and other materials that are contained within the nectar. This makes each variety of honey unique to its nectar source. 
So, if you ever wondered how honey was created & why there are more than one variety, now you know!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป #honey #honeyvarieties #naturalsweetener #bees #beefacts #honeybees #beekeeping #pollinators #rawhoney #shafferapiaries
