SAGE honey takes top prize!

Congratulations to the SAGE bees - their honey won the top award at the Benton County Fair last weekend! The SAGE honey has a beautiful light amber hue, with an awesome balance of floral and citrus flavor. It tastes great in mint tea!

Thank you Karessa for all of your initiative and your busy buzzing work with the SAGE hives! Benton County Fair judges and the bees clearly agree - you are the beekeeper of our dreams. To learn more about Karessa's world of beekeeping and to snag her secrets for award-winning honey, check out her great blog, Apicurious!

The crimson clover that covered the SAGE beds this spring provided lots of the raw material to the bees for this delicious honey! Karessa also believes that the "nectar sources grown pesticide- and herbicide-free at SAGE are to thank for both the quality of the honey and the robust health of the bees there."
