Did you know that the Mirasol Country Club produces its own honey? As part of its efforts as a certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary, the Country Club at Mirasol has begun harvesting its own honey. The affluent country club in Palm Beach Gardens has been given the approval to place beehives throughout the 2300-acre community to use the honey for culinary operations, spot treatments, and salon products. This truly is a 'BUZZ-worthy" project.
The club currently houses twenty beehives throughout the 2,300-acre community, producing more than 430 pounds to the sweet nectar over the past 12 months. The honey produced from these beehives will be used in the Club's culinary operations, from marinades and appetizers to desserts and cocktails the club announced. The "Bee Inspired" initiative will be prominently placed on menus by featuring a "Bee Inspired" logo.
Mirasol has always been about sustainable management and the club recently launched a "Bee Inspired" initiative in 2019. Last year, the Mirasol Golf Course Maintenance Director, Michael Thomas, enlisted the help of beekeeper Sierra Malnove to install twenty beehives in remote parts of the community. Since her installation, there have been more than 430 pounds of honey harvested to be used in the club's restaurants from marinades and appetizers, desserts, and cocktails, to spot treatments and salon products.
The logo will be indicated with a "Bee Inspired" logo on menus and on products. There will be lip bombs, beeswax products, and salon product lines with additional uses for future harvests still underway. This truly adds value for members and for obvious environmental benefits.
