Bolton Bees Honey

You have heard people talk about terroir when it comes to grapes for wine or coffee beans for coffee but how about for honey? Bolton Bees offers location-specific honey made from starter bee colonies that they have bred for the specific bee characteristics that will adapt them to the landscape of our Minnesota Climates. Travis and Chiara Bolton are making fabulous honey varieties that are unique to the landscape that the bees call home with native flowers, plants, and grasses. If you have ever wanted to start your own Minnesota Hardy bee colony Bolton Bees sells starter colonies and queens bred to withstand the conditions of the long cold northern winters. Look for the honey in the cheese section or on the shelves of your favorite retailers or coops or order online here.
