On a recent trip to Krakow Poland I came across this Christmas market stall selling honey and related products. I was amazed at the many varied types of honey (Miod) that were on sale. Honey varieties included Acacia, Buckwheat ,Bass Wood and Honeydew. Prices were comparable to English retail prices. Poland has a long history of Beekeeping and is one of if not the biggest honey producers in the EU. There are approximately 40,000 Beekeepers in Poland.

Great to see lots of early spring activity in a couple of my commercial beehives. There is lots of pollen coming in from crocus and tree catkins with plenty of bees foraging.The bees are queuing up to get in. Looks like the bees have wintered well and are off to a good start. It is a bit early in the year for a full inspection but things are looking good. All my hives are doing well lets hope it continues.
