Honey's composition is determined by the flowers from which bees collect nectar
No batch is ever the same - the floral sources available to our Mirsalehi Honey Bees changes throughout bee season
To make one pound of honey would require 768 worker bees their lifetime to fly more than 55,000 miles to collect nectar from 2 million flowers

The Carduus crispus, better known as the common field thistle, is a prickly plant that produces beautiful purple flowers from May to August. As a perennial flowering plant, it returns every year, with its stem growing up to 3-4 feet high.
The Trifolium repens, or white clover, is another perennial plant that graces the Mirsalehi Bee Garden each and every year with its sweet, floral scent. With small, white flowers which produce lots of nectar from June to August, the white clover is known for being one of the best plants for producing honey.
The Rubus fruticosus is a prickly shrub covered in small, white-to-lavender colored flowers from May to August. From June to August, the blackberry fruit ripen in the Mirsalehi Bee Garden. The flowers themselves emit a delicate-floral fragrance, whereas the blackberries bring a tart, spicy and fruity-floral aroma.
Fireweed is a fast-growing weed with bright pink flowers that attract bees from a large distance. Fireweed seeds only germinate and grow flowers once the land they’re placed in is burned by wildfire, hence its common name.
Hogweed is a herbaceous variety, in the same group of plants as fennel, cow parsley and ground elder. Instead of emitting a sweet scent, the hogweed mimics the scent of pigs to attract pollinating insects, such as the honey bee.
