Have you ever thought about selling your Flow honey? Or already do?
We once had a commercial beekeeper visit from Canada and he said that even though he sold his conventionally harvest honey, he tended to keep his Flow-harvested honey for himself and his family. Now that I’ve developed my ‘Flow honey pallet’, I can understand why.
I may be a bit biased, but to me, Flow honey tastes better than other honeys. Maybe because it’s closer to the source and allows for a very distinct separation of nectar sources to influence the flavour of the honey. There was actually a University study where they compared the sensory properties of yellow pea and macadamia honeys from conventional and Flow Hive extraction methods and found the honey from Flow frames to be superior in clarity, taste and consistency.
This feature of Flow honey makes it arguably higher in value which is great news for Flow beekeepers.
If you’re a Flow beekeeper and sell your honey, are you selling it for a premium price because it’s Flow-harvested? And how or where are you selling it? (Farmers markets? Friends and associates? Shops?)
Have you created a niche Flow-honey market in your area since introducing your customers to the unique Flow-harvested honey? I’d love to know.
