And don’t worry, no bee’s are harmed in the making of the mead — every nest is carefully harvested to promote active collection between the little honey makers and to also help the nest expand from the inside thus creating much more rich honey. The flavor of any particular honey is largely determined by the floral source of the nectar from which it was derived. Just as every flower has its fragrance, every variety of honey has its own distinct essence. It is this signature essence that determines the unique character of each of Heidrun’s mead varietals.
Like stepping into a slice of floral heaven, Heidrun brings together the freshest soil and happiest of flowers under one roof. In the fields, gardens and greenhouse of their farm in Point Reyes Station, they cultivate flowering plants to supplement the local natural forage
available to our honey bees. Flower nectar is the fundamental substance
from which bees make honey, so a happy flower equals a satisfied bee.
