What's New at Dallas - Preston and Forest
Ever wonder: are zip codes just numbers to help the Post Office deliver your mail? We wondered about those zip codes too. Then we discovered zip code honey and we were hooked!
Honey has been revered since the dawn of time for its many health benefits. Not only is it used as a natural sweetener, it provides a concentrated source of many nutrients including minerals, B-complex vitamins, and Vitamins C, D, and E. It promotes energy and healing because of its natural antiseptic qualities. And honey tastes great! Who doesn't like honey?
Enter zip code honey by the Texas Honeybee Guild. It is harvested locally-- right here in Dallas by Brian and Susan Pollard. (That's Susan Pollard on the left, ready to go into the beehive!)
Brian and Susan are "honeybee advocates." Did you know that the average life of a honeybee is 40 days? The teaspoon of honey that you put in your tea takes 12 bees to make. But the most important thing that bees do for us is to pollinate-- they pollinate billions of dollars of fruits and vegetables. And the population is shrinking for reasons that remain pretty much a mystery. So honeybee advocates, like Susan and Brian, work hard to support and expand local bee populations.
The honey that Susan and Brian harvest from their growing colonies of bees is from specific zip codes. The honey is flavored by local flowers, trees and shrubs and it's good for alleviating local allergies. Better still, the honey is absolutely free of the chemicals, antibiotics and toxins found in too many imported, commercially produced honeys. It is in keeping with our mission to support these local efforts and to maintain a safe,sustainable and productive ecosystem.
We now carry Texas Honeybee Guild Zip Code Honey (raw and unfiltered), Whipped Honey, and Honey-Dipped Pecans (from local pecans of course!).
Are zip codes just numbers? No! Come experience the delicious difference in Texas Honeybee Guild products!
