NMSU Field Trip: Honey

It's common knowledge that honey comes from bees. But many people don't know how bees make it and why. Honey making is a collective effort between nature and man. It's a process that's involves bee colonies, native plant life, agricultural crops, and of course beekeepers. This Field Trip! explores historical uses of honey, the basics of honey bee behavior, the process through which honey is made, factors that affect honey flavor, the process of removing honey from the hive, and more.
