Orchard Pond's Wildflower Honey embodies a mixture of floral sources from the geographical region surrounding the farm and comes to them from local beekeepers and their apiaries. As a result of the colonies’ pilgrimage from one place to another, the diverse flavors of Orchard Pond’s Wildflower Honey depends on what wildflowers are in bloom at the time the bees collect the nectar and pollen.
