Wildflower Summer Tennessee HoneyMADE BY TRUBEE HONEY IN FRANKLIN, TENNESSEE
This honey is actually called "free range." Are you thinking: "huh?" (we did too). Here's what free range means when it comes to honey: Tennessee Beekeepers Laura and Jeff put their “free-range” bees in places where they're not limited to any one particular tree or flower – instead these bees feast upon tulip poplar, fruit blossoms and black locust in the spring, then wildflowers, herbs and clover in the summer.
So each jar of TruBee honey captures the taste of nature in a particular place and time. Pretty cool, right?
As the summer warms up, the plains and pastures of Tennessee fill up with all kinds of blooms: Clover, purple thistle, gaillardia, dandelion, privet, aster and magnolia, as well as non-native herbs such as rosemary, sage, lemon balm and lavender. This bold, classic honey gets a dominant note from clover, but finishes with a lighter, almost lemony tang that comes from the rich variety of plants in these bees' complex diets.
