Sticky Situation.....Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa's resort apiary is home to nearly a quarter million honeybees during the summer. The hotel’s honey harvests, which take place 3-4 times a year, produce hundreds of pounds of organic liquid gold. After gently smoking the hives to calm the bees, the frames are removed and lightly brushed, and the honey is extracted. Our wildflower honeys are complex reflecting the nectar mix from many different seasonal wildflowers. Our lighter honeys tend to be from Spring harvests. The honey is used in several signature dishes and spa experiences. Our Sonoma Valley Wildflower Honey is a key ingredient in our crave-worthy Canele - a small French pastry with a soft and tender custard center and a dark, thick caramelized crust. #organic #househarvested #honeyharvest #honeybees #apiary
