What You Find In the Sweet Drop Apiary Gift Box:
Honey – Sweet Drop honey is collected from the flowers of various plants, light yellowish, yellowish golden or yellowish brown in color, aromatic, light or intense in taste. The taste and smell of honey depends on the smell of the flowers of the plants from which the nectar is taken. In our Sweet Drop apiary, bees live only in wooden hives.
Bee Pollen – Sweet Drop apiary bee pollen is a unique, natural product. Bee pollen is the male gamete of the flowers of flowering plants. When viewed with a simple eye, it looks like a small powder. Depending on the plants, their color and size may vary. For example: acacia pollen – white, raspberry – gray, buckwheat – yellow, apple – yellow. Bees collect pollen and granulate it by moistening each with their own saliva and nectar.
Bee bread – is a very valuable, natural, bee-fermented product, it is a real gift of nature to man. Bees make bread from pollen (the male cells of the flowers), enzymes produced by their saliva, and honey. The bread has a sweet and sour taste. The bees collected from the flowers bring the pollen on their feet to the hive and throw it into the honeycomb holes. The young bees crush the pollen clumps in the front jaws and compress them well in the honeycomb holes. This works until 2/3 of the honeycomb holes are filled, then filled with honey and covered with wax. The mixture is left to mature. Under the action of enzymes, at high humidity and heat (34 – 36 degrees) bee bread is formed in about 2 weeks.
