Save The Bees
Chef Frank Alert: Please know the importance of the
role our honey bees. They polinate our plants for fruits and vegetables. In our northern Michigan area honey bees produce
the best honey in the world from star thistle (spotted knap weed). Some groups are trying to eradicate this weed because it's
not a native species, by introducing a foreign beetle to eat the star thistle. "What?", another foreign species?
(What's wrong with this logic?) What will happen when the thistle is destroyed and the bugs need to find another food
source? What then will happen. I know we will no longer have the best honey in the world and may end up like China's lower
province where the farmers have to climb their pear trees to polinate them with tiny feather brushes in order to get their
life sustaining crop of pears. Due to a lack of responsible pesticide regulations, they have poisoned
their environment which killed all the bees and their habitat.
We want a healthy honey bee environment with
responsible pesticide controls, which include communication to bee keepers of application schedules, as most farmers
in our area do. By working responsibly together, we can "SAVE OUR BEES"!!
Chef Frank Alert! Please look at ingredients
of your foods. Did you know that rapeseed has only been used widely for lubricating industrial machinery. A large food
company decided to geneticly modify this seed and use it for food before any testing for safety. It come out of canada under
the name Canola (which stands for Canada Oil). Now it's in most major brands of peanut butter. Please get on your
search engines or from this site and search for "rapeseed" and you'll get an education.
Thanks and stay healthy.
