Blueberry Blossom Honey!

We all know how important honeybees are to agriculture.   They play an essential role in blueberry production as well.  Beekeepers bring their colonies into the blueberry fields when the white laneter-like blossoms are ready.   Bees pollinate and the result is a bountiful crop of blueberry!
Did you know that this process also results in blueberry honey?
These bees are collecting nectar from the blueberry plants and require thousands of stops to make a single teaspoon of blueberry honey.  A number of honey producers offer this product as a varietal honey.   (This means that the honey nectar is from a single floral source).   The honey is pure blueberry blossom honey made right here in the USA.
