Blume Honey Water harnesses the power of honey in our hydrating, energizing waters, and only 100% bee-friendly honey will do. We know your standards are just as high as ours.
• Batch traceable from humane beekeepers
• Calm, healthy environment for bees
• Bees are not overworked or mistreated
• Bees are not fed high-fructose corn syrup
Honey supplies two stages of energy. First, your body absorbs honey’s glucose for immediate invigoration and then the slow-absorbing fructose provides smooth, sustained energy.
"Honey is an amazing healthful food, regardless of how and what condition one might consume or use it. Perhaps the most astounding statement one can make about honey is that it accomplishes something for almost every organ, tissue, cell or system in the body without one complication, risk or negative consequence."

"the new honey revolution"
There are thousands of honey varietals found around the world (more than 350 in the U.S. alone), and each has its own distinctive floral character. We craft a proprietary honey blend not only to avoid single sourcing, but more so to take advantage of the beautifully diverse flavors and aromas that various honeys bestow on our waters.
Steve Repasky of Meadow Sweet Bees, has been a friend and advisor to us before Blume Honey Water ever hit the shelves.
Steve is the owner of Meadow Sweet Apiaries and a second-generation beekeeper living in Pittsburgh, PA. He is a certified Master Beekeeper through the Eastern Apicultural Society and is also the current President of the Pennsylvania State Beekeepers Association, president of Burgh Bees, and a member of the Board of Directors for the American Beekeeping Federation. He is also an active member of the PA Queen Improvement Projectand is a member of the Penn State Center for Pollinator Research Advisory Board and the Pennsylvania State Apiary Advisory Board. Stephen manages 100 colonies and is involved in honey production, queen rearing and the selling of nucleus hives each summer to those interested in starting or expanding their own beekeeping adventure! Steve can be found teaching beekeeping classes and workshops and presenting lectures at regional and national conferences around the United States.
Introducing our friend Tim Brod of Highland Honey in Boulder, CO. Tim was a farmer, chef and world traveler before turning his passions to beekeeping and honey and the future of each. In his own words:
"The skills of a beekeeper are paramount in contributing to the health of the bees and their capacity to produce quality excess honey. Helping bees to maintain strong immune systems demands skill and constant learning. Diverse food supports bee health. We have a labor-intensive practice of moving our hives several times a year, following nectar flows.
We do this to help support the nutritional needs of the bees and because this diversity of foods helps create the rich complex flavors of our honey. When our honey is jarred for consumption, it is a fully blended honey with diverse nectars from the varying eco-zones solely from Boulder County. The floral source for this truly local honey comes in part directly from your backyard."

Meet Alan Tremblay of Tremblay Apiaries in Fingerlakes Region of New York. Alan is a lifelong Beekeeper and farmer and has a deep passion for environmental health and pure food.
Among Alan's goals are: " To do the best job possible in caring for the bees and their environment. Animal husbandry is a 24/7 occupation and an enormous responsibility. Make no mistake, if it weren't for the beekeeper hovering over his hives, most of them would perish within a relatively short period. That is particularly true these days with two parasitic mites to deal with, plus antibiotic resistant foulbrood diseases, hungry bears, and the changing environment.
We take pride in consistently producing the finest, most natural products we can harvest from the bees."
Tremblay Apiaries are major participants and supporters of the Council for the Environment, the Greenmarkets, of NYC. They are proud to be retailing their products to the people of New York City. AND, they have some of the best bee pollen we've ever tasted!
