On our last buying trip to the South Island we picked up a new variety of honey - Blackcurrant Honey.
This is from hives that pollinate blackcurrant bushes and collect their nectar, it has a definite aftertaste of blackcurrants.

Blackcurrants contain high levels of anthocyanins and anti-oxidants. These support the immune system and help maintain health and well-being. This honey has a light amber colour, it has a refreshing flavour with a hint of spice.

Come in and try it - we do honey tasting.

What do bees do in winter?
Without blankets, fires, or adjustable thermostats, honeybees have to stick together pretty closely to stay warm (and alive) in the winter. When temperatures in the winter drop below 10 °C, honeybees retreat to their hives and form a winter cluster to keep warm—sort of like a giant three-month slumber party.
The fate of the hive depends on how sufficiently the winter population has prepared for the cold. To survive and keep warm, the hive must have a robust population of winter-ready bees, plentiful stores of honey to eat, and a secure hive.
A successful winter cluster is made up of a generation of bees with different physiological characteristics from those of the summer population—bees that are a bit more plump to keep up the heat and have a longer lifespan to last the whole winter (4–6 months instead of only a few weeks). The queen will stop laying if food supplies get low to conserve stores.
On warm winter days some bees will venture out in search of winter flowers and pollen. they also leave the hive to poop as the like to keep the hive clean.

Wasps and bumblebees on the other hand all die off except for the queen who will go into hibernation until spring.
