Some REALLY dark honey in Western New York
We started extracting this week - best year so far in 5 years! We have 7 hives - 4 overwintered and 3 new hives started from scratch this summer. Still got about 20 supers full - mix of shallows and mediums. All of our honey in years past has been a beautiful delicate light gold color with a wonderful flavor. This year we're getting a lot of supers full of REALLY dark honey with a strong flavor! My husband is wondering about a buckwheat field that's almost 2 miles away, but otherwise we don't know of anything else that's different. Anyone else having this happen? We're in Wyoming County, south of Buffalo and Rochester.
