Jeff went to a beekeeping class on Saturday at Pennypack Farm and Education Center and scored two jars of honey that he extracted himself.
Here are some fun facts he shared with me that I thought you might enjoy as well:
- 1/3 of the calories we consume are because of the pollination of honey bees.
- Honey bee stings are a medically acknowledged cure for arthritis inflammation.
- Male bees, called Drones, have no other job than mating with a queen all the time.
- One pound of honey = 2 million flowers
