Walt’s Swarmbustin’ Honey
Walt Broughton, fondly known as the "Swarmbuster" delivers his unique honey to honey lovers through local stores and the Internet at 911honey.com. While his website is very simple and basic his honey products are anything but. Comprised of honey, bee pollen, propolis and beeswax products his contribution to healthy nutrition goes beyond just delivering these treats to those who love honey.
"Totally Raw Honey"
Some of Walt’s honey is raw which means it was extracted from the honey comb using centrifugal force falling freely from the comb into the jar. It contains pollen, propolis and honeycomb throughout the jar and is just delicious. Raw honey solidifies over time. If I prefer it to be "runny" I’ll leave the lid on and heat it in my Excalibur Dehydrator which I set on 85 degrees. This gently heats the honey so it’s liquid again without removing the moisture.
How Swarmbustin’ Honey is different
We know honey is the food bees make and store for themselves to eat during the winter. The way Walt harvests the honey and cares for the bees makes the bees stronger and therefore they make more honey than they need, leaving an excess for harvesting.
What is Bee Pollen?
Pollen is collected by the bees when they pollinate flowers and is another form of food for them providing protein and carbohydrates. They carry the pollen from the flowers back to the hive. What falls off their legs on the way into the hive is what is harvested and sold in glass jars, which should be refrigerated.
Why does honey come in different colors?
The color of the honey depends upon the type flowers the bees collect nectar from. Sometimes bee keepers take their portable hives to different farmer’s crops to help pollinate them during the growing season.
Other uses of honey
Honey can be used for skin care, soothing sore throats
