A golden honey with soft hues of berry, Strawberry-Henbit is one of the most prized varietals. Crafted's Cherryville and Fallston bee yards are located on farms that have both wild strawberries and henbit plants. Henbit is a very nutritious plant with deep pink flowers that is part of the mint family. Sometimes considered an invasive plant, we celebrate Henbit because it is one of the season's earliest bloomers and provides an abundance of nectar and pollen for honeybees. These two floral sources (strawberry and Henbit) yield a remarkable honey that won't disappoint and is a favorite at Crafted Honey.
