NEW HARVEST - Bill's Bees 100% Raw Avocado Honey! Now Available!

From April to June we take some of our honey bees to help pollinate avocados in the avocado orchards of Ventura County, CA. The nectar from avocado blossoms makes a dark, rich buttery honey with a subtle taste of avocado. The unique taste can be used in a variety of ways: in your smoothies, delicious on toast, in cooking recipes which call for honey. It can be used as a substitute for sugar or molasses. Use Avocado Honey to create your own homemade facial masks, shampoos and conditioners. With its high levels of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, you can also use it on cuts and burns to help aid the healing process. Bill's Bees 100% Raw Avocado Honey - unfiltered, unprocessed - Just the Way the Bees Made It!

DID YOU KNOW?...Abraham Lincoln was "very fond of honey."

As a child in Indiana Abraham Lincoln was used to eating honey, and a biography quoted the following from a letter written shortly after his death: "Mr. Lincoln was very fond of honey. Whenever he went to Mr. Short's house he invariably asked his wife for some bread and honey. And he liked a great deal of bee bread in it. He never touched liquor of any kind." - 68. N. W. Branson to William H. Herndon. Petersburg Ill Aug 3. 1865

“I don't like to hear cut and dried sermons. No—when I hear a man preach, I like to see him act as if he were fighting bees.”
― Abraham Lincoln

"It is an old and a true maxim, that a "drop of honey catches more flies than a gallon of gall." So with men. If you would win a man to your cause, first convince him that you are his sincere friend. Therein is a drop of honey that catches his heart, which, say what he will, is the great highroad to his reason,..." -Abraham Lincoln, Temperance Address of February 22, 1842 -Springfield, Illinois
