Here’s a question for you to start your week – how do they mass produce honey?
The Surgeon General keeps bees so I know a little of how it is produced on small family farms, and it is fairly labour intensive to make honey. Plus honey from Long Meadow bees always tastes far superior to anything you can get in the supermarket, so how the big companies makes it can’t be the same.
I repeat, how do you mass produce honey? It is not like you can battery farm bees, or can you? I have visions of huge swathes of moorland given over to rampaging herds of bees, grazing on all the heather they can get their proboscis’ into, till the bee keeper whistles them in for the night, perhaps using so trained badgers as sheepdogs.
So I stretch the analogy some, but that is what my brain does! It makes these silly leaps when I have no information to fill the void, so again I ask – how do you mass produce honey?
