Ciranda Office Honey Production

MAY 9, 2012  -  Two bee hives were established on the grounds at Ciranda this spring to provide a home for honey bees and an on-site source for nature’s sweetest treat – honey! With the help of the University of Minnesota’s Bee Squad, the colonies have continued to grow and thrive throughout the summer. Today our growing bee population is ranging up to five miles away to gather pollen and nectar for the hives. By season’s end, Ciranda’s hives are expected to produce 2 gallons of honey.

"James Mitchell, Innovations and Development Manager, Ciranda, Inc., Hudson, WI, added that honey is natural and comes in an organic form, both of which are desirable attributes for many products.  Because of honey's high sweetness level, he said, products made with honey rather than sugar can include less sugars, thus achieving slight calorie reduction."
