Farm Traveler Podcast interviews Joseph Register about commercial beekeeping, from the risks and rewards of sending bees to pollinate California almond trees to the health benefits of pollen and how honey is gathered, this podcast packs a lot of information into fifteen minutes.
One of the most anticipated times of the year at the farm is the arrival of the White Tupelo bloom. As the Tupelo bloom approaches, we harvest our spring honey and move our hives to locations that have the highest concentration of White Tupelo trees. This allows us to produce the purest Tupelo honey possible. When it comes to honey enthusiasts, the purer, the better as it brings out the unique and pleasing qualities that make Tupelo honey a favorite the world over.

After a busy time pollinating the almond orchards of California, our hives have made the long trip home and are ready to start producing the sweet, flavorful wildflower honey that our customers love.
If you love honey—and we mean REALLY love honey— you probably look forward to Tupelo honey season the way children anticipate Christmas: all year long. Good news for these honey aficionados… the wait is over! Tupelo honey season is here at last. At Register Family Farm, we’re happy to say that the 2018 Tupelo honey is on our shelves at all of our markets and in our online store. You can purchase this sweet treat in a variety of vessels, including a fun Honey Bear, in a glass jar, in a convenient squeeze bottle, or even a traditional glass swing-top...
