Persson's new employees have been hard at work over the summer 🐝🌸
The Persson honey bees have been working diligently over the summer – pollinating a neighboring meadow bursting with wildflowers and transforming the nectar they collected.
The resulting honey is stored in the hive and used during cold weather or drought as a food source for the hive. Thankfully, bees work very hard and often make more honey than they need, we harvest this surplus.
Bees are natural pollinators, returning to the hive from their travels laden with pollen. They are an essential link in our ecosystem and food chain pollinating our flowering crops to ensure a plentiful harvest.
And with the warm summer days now fading away as a distant memory it has been the ideal time and conditions to harvest the by-product of our bees hard work, their honey. It comes in many colors and flavors with as many different honeys as there are flower species.
Harvesting too early means we don’t capitalize on the full amount of honey potentially available each year and harvesting too late risks running into cold temperatures.
Located in Sweden we can already see the leaves and landscapes turning autumnal as the evenings draw in far quicker now. And with the chill in the air, we need to make sure we don’t take too much honey and not leave enough for the colony to survive on over the winter.
Going forward we hope to be able to harvest honey twice a year as we learn more about what are the best conditions for our bees to thrive.
We will keep you up to date with our honey bees progress and our work in terms of sustainability as we continue to focus on the environment.
If you have any questions or suggestions about our bees please let us know, and if you want to talk sustainability make a beeline for our focus on Re-think packaging. Think sustainability.
