Fewster’s Farm Honey – February 2023 News
Welcome to the February issue of our Newsletter!
From the Bee Keeper…
During the summer months in Western Australia, even the bees get hot!
Ideally maintaining a hive temperature of 32 to 35 degrees celsius is where the bees like it.
As well as harvesting honey at this time of year, we also ensure the bees have plenty of shade, ventilation and water.
Jarrah honey’s anti-microbial quality is measured by the term “Total Activity (TA)”. The TA is like a bacteria killing scale; the higher the TA the greater the antimicrobial strength. The anti-bacterial activity of honey is derived via natural enzymes and chemicals in the honey.
Any honey with a TA of greater than 10+ may have beneficial antimicrobial properties, and these properties are more effective as the TA level increases. So honey with a TA of 30 or more are considered to be some of the healthiest and best honeys in the world.
High Total Activity Honeys like Fewster’s Jarrah range have excellent antibacterial and antifungal healing benefits.
