The honeybees are placed in the Macadamia Nut orchards of the Big Island from December to April. There they skip from flower to flower, pollinating the trees and foraging for nectar. In Spring, the beekeepers start harvesting the honey crop. They visit the hives hidden deep within the groves. They bring the hive frames laden with honey back to the Honey House ready for extracting. There the caps are cut off the comb and the honey is spun out and bottled. The air within the house is filled with the sweet aroma of the honey, scented of Macadamia blossoms. The new crop is here!
