Did you know that September is National Honey Month? According to the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture, “National Honey Month, initiated by the National Honey Board in 1989, marks an important time for honey producers and beekeepers across the nation. In the United States, honey collection season typically concludes in September as bees begin to secure their hives and prepare for winter. In the spirit of celebration, here are a few fun, crazy facts you may not have known about bees, beekeeping, and honey!”
You still have time to celebrate nature’s sweetener at Salish Lodge and Cedarbrook Lodge!
Salish Lodge & Spa
Join Salish in celebrating Honey Month and enjoy their Honey Month Tasting Menu in The Dining Room. Featuring a four-course meal with dishes that highlight honey from their apiary, guests can elevate the experience by including their recommended wine pairings.
A native of Washington State, Daniel Sullivan is Salish Lodge’s apiary expert, known as the “Beeman” around Salish Lodge. Daniel and Salish Lodge & Spa joined forces in early 2011 to take action against the national bee and honey crisis and it is Daniel’s goal to produce enough honey to ensure that every local person has access to fresh and all-natural honey. Learn more about Daniel’s journey to Salish here.
