Does anyone know of a beekeeper in North America who produces sunflower honey?  Preferably with a web site.  I imagine such a person would be in the northern Great Plains region.  Any info most appreciated.

Hello Bruce

I am happy to see a response.  I have an acquaintance in Maryland who has been buying his sunflower honey from abroad, but would like to buy some made here in the USA.  If you agree, would you please send me your contact information, which I may forward to him, so that he may secure a purchase?  We are only talking about a couple of jars, here, not too much.

Thanks again for responding.  If you could, please tell me what is unique about sunflower honey; I really know little about it in particular.

Sunflower honey is a extra light amber colored and has a pleasant flavor.The honey, bees produce from sunflowers granulates or sugars quite fast and has to be extracted  as soon as it is capped over or it is rock hard in the comb.             Sunflowers are grown for their oil and seeds and bloom late summer.Its a pretty sight to drive by a field of sunflower a mile long that are 6 to 8 foot tall and have heads as big as platters.             The one drawback is spray--bee kill, lots of bad bugs love to chew on the seeds, so air spraying is done and lots of bees are lost if sprayed at the wrong time.                   bmanhanson@webtv.net

It sounds beautiful.  I lived in the Republic of Moldova last year, and one of their chief crops is sunflowers, for the oil fo course, and for the fact that most of the population chews and spits the seeds constantly.  The country is littered with the shells, and every corner has a robust harsh looking Russian woman hawking the seeds for pennies per bag.

I will give your e-mail address to the person interested and you two can arrange about buying a jar of your honey.  Thank you for the response.

They have not yet let me out WB, they now think that I am one of them.  So I may come and go as I please, and don't have to be confined in those funny jackets anymore.  I still tend to wander, and wonder as I wander.  I'm amazed at the wonderous beauty that abounds as I wander, wondering.

I see your wandering as well...   Do you every wonder why you wander, or wonder while you wander, or wander as your wondering?

I think the wandering Buddhist laid his hands upon him causing him to wander in wonderment. Or is that wonder in wanderment. I am going to be wondering about this one for awhile.
