I would like to see more pics of your set up as well.  looks real good, I like the blocks under the hive.  What kind of honey are they making at this time of year?

its mostly coral vine(antigonon leptopus) that is all around plus wild cherries, some form of acacia tree along ackee and mango. there arent any farms nearby so it will always be mostly that.

I am in the process of setting another location which has a greater variety of vegetation and fruits, citrus, more mangoes and ackee, apples, naseberry and logwood

You should sell the honey as Jamaican honey. Sounds like it should have a real unique taste compared to North American honey.

I am thinking of doing that but i need to expand my operations significantly. I have a friend in nc or ny who is willing to sell my honey over there. Also i am not sure if i can just export like that. There is a whole lot of red tape on thiss end but i will be giving it a try

Please let us know how it works out for you.

I'm interested in moving to Hawaii in a few years and marketing honey from there over here too. Like Volcano Island Honey:

Looks awesome. I guess I should taste it first!

UtahBees,

Until we find out how sean did with the hurricane I doubt we will get a response for a while.

Sincerely,

Well I have tasted this honey and you would not believe it.  Interesting story on the web site about this honey.

Also, Sean, glad you are ok and getting back on your feet. Stay in touch
