Greetings From The Florida Keys
« on: June 16, 2008, 12:21:58 PM »
Hey All,

My name is Gabriel. My father Mike, and I, produce and sell honey in the Florida Keys. The name of our Company is Bees N The Keys.

We have the pleasure of announcing our summer varieties of:   

Jamaica Dogwood and Black mangrove

No, the Jamaica Dogwood is not supposed to grow in the U.S. However, due to climate, the rare light summer honey is now available.

But don't go overboard, the late summer brings back the Black Mangrove Honey. Our region used to be very popular for this summer treat. This year on '08 we anticipate a large crop of this complex honey. The taste starts out creamy, gets a little oaky smokey, and has a sweet finish.

If interested in either variety, you can email me @ Gabriel@bees-n-the-keys.com for more information.

Please note, if our Black Mangrove crop is as large as expected Bees N The Keys may be looking for other commercial keepers to trade barrels of stock. We currently use tupelo and gallberry for which it would be nice to find trading partners.

Great to meet you guys, and a pleasure to be part of the organization.

I just returned from the Florida Keys from a vacation there. I was in Islamorada. I purchased some local honey from a road side stand.

Great place to live and raise bees. Very lush

Nice to meet you
