I don’t know how many of you are familiar with the plight of our bees, but let me tell you it’s starting to look rather grim. The nation’s bees are suffering from what is known as Colony Collapse Disorder due to a variety of reasons like monoculture, pesticide use, disease, and many other potential causes. Bees are important because without them the US would suffer from devastating losses of vegetable and fruit crops as well as in honey production. I’m sure all of you can share this concern for our bees with me, and I’m sure many of you may now be thinking what can I do to help? Supporting organic beekeeping is the answer! It’s a great way to ensure a sustainable, healthy, and happy bee population, which is definitely a necessity.
I for one, buy Y.S. Eco Bee Farms Certified Organic Raw Honey and I also keep an abundant garden in the backyard. The reason organic beekeeping is better for our bees is because the beekeepers don’t use pesticides or any other kind of chemicals on the bees or the plants, and the bees are able to have a versatile, constant supply of food (various flowers of course) rather than one crop like monoculture has provided them. Also, the bees are isolated from contaminated areas like golf courses and agricultural land so they don’t suffer in any way or pick up something harmful.
Another great thing is that organic honey is good for us humans too. Organic honey is raw, unfiltered, and unpasteurized meaning that Y.S. Eco Bee Farms leaves all the good stuff in their honey for us to benefit from.
Honey is high in antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, enzymes; is a good source of energy, and since it’s sweeter than sugar you don’t need as much to satisfy that sweet tooth of yours. Plus, since only truly raw, organic honey crystallizes you can see the difference of quality in the honey you’re getting and you’ll definitely be able to taste it. Y.S. Organic Bee Farms honey is available at any local health food store, so I suggest you get out there and give it a try. Some of their organic honey products are available on amazon, too.
