So much for Almonds
6 February 2014 | by santadog9See all my reviews

There are so many things stacked up against Honey Bees and other Pollinators, so I was shocked to see just how "Big Honey" cares for their bees, and then wonders why their hives are week and unable to defend themselves against disease, virus, mites, and pesticides. After seeing how negatively the Almond Industry affects our bee colonies, I am off Almonds altogether. I am an Organic minded beekeeper, and as such, I can not support the Almond Industry any longer. Too see the factory style of keeping in practice was heartbreaking to say the least. SHAME on "Big Honey". It's no wonder store bought honey tastes nothing like yard honey. When I harvest, each side of every frame of honey tastes and smells different from the rest because each one was created by the bees during different flower's nectar flows. One could be dandelion, another golden rod, another clover, and so on.

Such a shame.
