    Greetings All,

    IMHO, Tupelo honey is the Cadillac of honey. I'm a little bit too far south for my bees to collect tupelo, but from what I understand, beekeepers are using hives on pontoon boats to collect this honey. Is this true? Anybody out there with Tupelo honey experience?

    TIA,

    Sorry, no Tupelo experience here. I would think that using pontoon boats might be a bit risky?

    LoL... You ain't lying! You'd Probably have to drive the boat in reverse.


    I did hear the flow only last 14 days.
