Star Thistle Honey originated in the Mediterranean from the yellow star thistle plant and migrated to the US in the mid nineteenth century. Considered a noxious weed by many, this star thistle clustered amongst thorns produces yellow star thistle honey, which is relished by honey enthusiasts.

Beekeepers in California, Idaho, Michigan, Arizona, Oregon and Washington seek out fields of this knapweed because of the large amounts of star thistle honey that can be produced from this plant. The light amber nectar of the plant is highly desirable by bees and honey producers. California is the major producer of Star Thistle Honey. Some 500,000 pounds of Star Thistle Honey is produced throughout the US each year.

The star thistle honey making plant is aggressive and can propagate itself quickly by sinking down large taproots. It quickly shuts out other plant growth, making it a very good locale for large dense stands that are appealing to bees. Luckily, this plant produces ambrosia that is sought by honey epicurists in Star Thistle Honey. Treat yourself to a yellow Star Thistle Honey break today.

Star Thistle Honey Shortage

Monday, June 30th, 2008 10:56am

Star Thistle Honey Shortage is a possibility for the 2008 honey crop. There are several prevalent factors that have been working against the bees for years. Hive decline, foul brood, mites, Africanized Bees, and wax moths are but a few of the reasons bees have had to overcome in order to put up a surplus crop of honey that the bee keeper could take without harming the hives chances for winter survival.

Colony collapse disorder was the bedtime fear of last fall. This spring star thistle honey beekeepers awoke to a new twist. Beehive die-off. As many as 95% of beehives died last winter in Washington State. Thinking the “condition” was localized, Washington State University went into overdrive to find out why the bees only died in great numbers in Washington State. It soon became evident that the event was global with similar reports coming from England.

There is speculation that the cause of the bee die-off or abandonment is caused by the rampant use of cell phones that may disrupt bee fight navigation. Star Thistle honey is gathered in remote areas that have little cell phone coverage, however the commercial beekeeper usually travels long distances to gather honey and pollinate various crops before gathering star thistle honey.

Haagen Dazs ice cream giants have started a global bee awareness website where you can glean and help the bees, beekeepers and yourself. Your immediate response may be, “how could I benefit from helping bees?” Well 35 % of everything you eat depends on bees to pollinate it. If we don’t help the bees this year we may face food shortages as soon as next year!

Yellow Star thistle honey is the number one favorite of all gourmet honeys. The projected  yellow star thistle honey shortage may increase the price of honey. More important than the price of honey is that we support our beekeepers and keep the local bee populations healthy and numerous!

Star Thistle Honey Gift

Monday, September 29th, 2008 11:24am

Gourmet Honey Gift Pack Star thistle honey gift, awarded “America’s favorite” honey, is included in our hexagon jar of 5.5 ounces. Also included are three other world class gourmet honeys; the noted tupelo honey from the Choctahatchee, Chipola, and Appalachicola River systems of Florida, Blackberry honey from the Pacific Northwest, and the rare Palmetto Honey from the fringes of the Everglades. All four gourmet honeys are raw honey for premium tastes and healthy benefits.

Star thistle honey grows from the yellow star thistle plant that immigrated from the Mediterranean almost a hundred years ago. The yellow star thistle plant has spread to all 48 lower states and sections of Canada. Yellow star thistle honey is primarily collected from Washington, California and Michigan. The yellow star thistle plant only grows in large enough perfusion to produce honey in small pockets in these states as it has been eradicated as a weed diligently by farmers and county agencies.

Star thistle honey is described as “sunbeam in a bottle”™, actually glowing as warm rays of yellow gold and has been heralded as “smoother than silk”, “heaven on a spoon”, “taste bud fantasy”, “never thought honey could taste like the smell of flowers”, “should be eaten a cappella”, or “just draw the drapes, let the symphony play while you and the spoon dip into the star thistle honey!”

Honeys have never tasted as good as yellow star thistle honey. Enjoy 4 flavors in this Honey Gift Pack, (or send it to a friend). The star thistle honey gift pack is the one gift that will get rave reviews from the recipient, WE GAURANTEE IT!

Star thistle honey is popular to use as a creamed honey. It is light white in color and when creamed (a method of allowing the star thistle honey to crystallize into a easily spreadable texture that is the most popular use of honey in England and Australia), the star thistle honey becomes a manageable spread.

Star thistle honey gift pack can be shipped to your recipient with a greetings message from you. Let the Gourmet Honey Gift Pack treat fill your gift needs on your next special gift giving occasion.
