If you spend time with Henry, you
soon realize that consumption of honey is only part of a greater experience.
After all there is a lot to consider.
Honey is usually judged by it's type,
color, flavor, and moisture content. An emerging group of honey aficionados are
equally interested in where the hives are located, and when it was harvested.
Like wine, honey flavors are unique and easily recognized if you know what you
are tasting. Henry believes that providing detailed information about our crops
and flora will add greatly to the overall consumer experience. When you click
on a type of honey from the menu on the left, you are presented with detailed
descriptions of the source of the nectar, how and where it grows including map
locations, how to identify them as you travel our highways. Henry shares his
expertise as a seasoned beekeeper to bring us the highest quality honey
available and that means "quality according to Henry Parker". All of the honey
offerings at Sweet Thing Honey Plantation are 100% Pure Raw Unheated, and
Unfiltered. Check out the Frequently
Asked Questions section for more.
Henry is retired as a major
honey producer, but he still maintains hives around the plantation to make
local Lake County wild flower. His current responsibilities include overseeing
honey house operations, and traveling to visit other beekeepers, mostly
friends, visiting their locations to procure the finest available honey before
it goes to the general market. Experienced beekeepers know when a season or
crop has produced an exceptional honey. It's Henry's mission to bring that
quality of honey to your table.
