TMH - Premium Blend
In the southern Appalachian mountains, there is an abundance of specialty honeys due to the wide variety of plants. Below
are some of the ones that SHF uses to add the distinctive flavor & color to their Tennessee Mountain Honey, premium blend:
LOCUST - BLACK BERRIES - TULIP POPLAR - CLOVER - SUMAC - SOURWOOD - GOLDENROD - ASTOR
Dark Wildflower Honey
Wildflower honey (most plentiful) is produced when the bees visit many varieties of flowers, especially in late Fall when
so many of the specialty trees and shrubs are no longer flowering. Also, wildflower honey is made by the beekeeper blending
a variety of specialty honeys. Colors tend to be medium to dark.
SHF's Dark Wildflower Honey is raw and unfiltered to retain all the vitamins, minerals, and trace elements. It is particularly
popular as a health food used in organic cooking, added to herbal tea and as a homeopathic source.
Sourwood honey (highly rated & desired) is extra-light to light amber in color and extremely aromatic, with a distinctive
rich honey flavor. In local/regional markets it commands a premium price.
The Sourwood tree, Oxydendrum arboreum, is one of the most prized native trees of North America, especially in the Smoky,
Nantahala, and Blue Ridge Mountains of southern Appalachia. It is also known as the Sorrel Tree and Lily-of-the-Valley Tree.
