How does the environment depends the quality of honey and health


#1

Hello, all!
I am a beekeeper from the village, and I found an article which says that a honey from urban, and the polluted environment has lower quality.

Is it true?
If so, I guess it is connected with bees health. How do beekeepers from urban environment deal with it?


#2

Your source article doesn’t say that at all.
It simply states that somebody who is setting up a commercial activity was worried that their honey might be unsafe so went about getting it analysed for various nasties which amazingly revealed that their honey was great to eat.
A bit of an advert, I suspect?

whilst one would assume that urban bees are exposed to more pollution- perhaps it’s not true in some ways- rural bees are potentially exposed to more pesticides. The best purest honey of all must come from national parks and wilderness areas I guess? The furthest from man and his poisons.

Absolutely
Wild honey from wild bees
The sort the Nepalese gather


#5

but just not that hallucinogenic poisonous one :relaxed:
