About bees at s-farms
we are doing our part to save the honey bees
S-Farms has joined partnership with Magnolia Bee Company to help do our part in saving the bees and providing access to raw local honey. Steve and Lesa, our bee keepers from Magnolia Bee Company have bee farms in Florida & Ohio and have a combined experience of 20+ years in the bee business. They work tirelessly to ensure the bees have a safe, clean environment, produce the best and cleanest honey and by-products; and ensure they continue to be fruitful and multiple to build the bee population and save them from extinction. They carefully harvest the honey separating the sweet serum from the honey comb and extract the pollen and wax bi-products. All of which are packaged and sold.
The bees at S-Farms produce gallons of honey that the farm sells to the public. We add a special touch to our honey by infusing it with a variety of flavors like jalapeno, ghost pepper, chili pepper & garlic, turmeric & cinnamon and more... Check our store page to learn which flavors are in stock.
Benefits of Honey
ALLERGY PROTECTION Some research supports the theory that local honey-- obtained as close as possible to where you live--may help build an immunity to some seasonal allergies. Allergies are triggered by continuous exposure to the same allergen over time. Even if a particular plant is not allergenic initially, it can potentially become very allergenic if you spend much time in the same environment as the plant. Honey made by bees in the vicinity of the allergenic plant will contain tiny amounts of pollen from that plant. This honey will act as a sort of vaccine if taken in small amounts--a few teaspoons per day--for several months, and can provide relief from seasonal pollen-related allergies. ANTIOXIDANTS AND PHYTONUTRIENTS Honey is also rich in powerful antioxidants and cancer-fighting phytonutrients, which can be found in the propolis, or "honey glue" that the bees use to sterilize the beehive. Raw honey contains some of these compounds while pasteurized honey does not. DIGESTIVE AIDE In its natural, raw state, honey contains many enzymes that can help some people digest food more easily so it may also help treat ulcers and diarrhea. VITAMINS & MINTERALS The nutrient content of raw honey varies, but a 1-ounce serving contains very small amounts of folate as well as vitamins B2, C, B6, B5 and B3. Minerals including calcium, copper, iodine, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, potassium, selenium, sodium and zinc can also be found in raw honey in small amounts. TOPICAL SALVE Honey can be used as medicine. It has anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and antiseptic properties. For this reason it can be applied topically to treat burns, as researchers at the University of Auckland in New Zealand describe in a 2008 study. COUGH SUPPRESSANT Honey has also been found to be especially useful in treating upper respiratory infections. A study at Penn State College of Medicine in 2007 found that a small dose of buckwheat honey was more effective than an over-the-counter cough treatment for children.
