Bees will scavenge nectar from any source within their flight radius, which can extend a staggering 6 miles from the hive. Typically though, they forage much closer to the hive. In order to force the bees to eat just one food, you have to strategically place the hive within a given field. With just one crop to pollinate, the bees will pass the properties of that flower onto their honey resulting in a varietal honey. The Dry Orange Blossom Mead of Michigan-based B. Nektar showcases orange blossom honey in a dry mead. [bnektar.com]
