Chilliwack River Valley Natural Honey
the health benefits of honey . . .
Honey is mankind’s oldest sweetener. Honey is manufactured in nature’s most efficient factory – the beehive. Bees make honey from the nectar of flowers. They will travel as far as 40,000 miles and visit over 2 million flowers to produce one pound of honey.
Honey has been found in the tombs of ancient Egyptian Pharos and men harvesting honey was painted on the walls of caves by pre-historic man. The bible mentions honey or honeycomb over 40 times. Honeybees have been in Europe and Asia for hundreds of thousands of years. It was not until the late 1600’s that the bee was brought to Canada by Europeans. Approximately one third of the human diet is derived directly or indirectly from crops pollinated by honeybees. Today, honeybees are an essential part of a healthy agriculture economy.
