- California Wildflower: The Sacramento Valley is nestled between two picturesque mountain ranges; the Vaca (part of the Coastal Mountains) and the Sierra. In spring and early summer, the valley is full of colorful blossoms, and honey bees forage on them to bring you this bright, aromatic honey laced with delicate maple undertones.
- Northwestern Blackberry: A classic favorite. Stand around a blackberry bush in bloom, and you can feel the buzz created by the honeybees, busy gathering nectar from its abundant blossoms.
About Z Speciality Foods: After graduating from college, founder Ishai Zeldner decided to pursue adventure by living on a Kibbutz in Israel. For nine months, six days a week were split between learning Hebrew and working on the kibbutz, mostly in the fields. He immediately felt at home on Kibbutz Beit HaShita, a cooperative community that not only raised fish and cattle for consumption but grew agricultural products such as cotton, melon, grapefruit and olives. It also produced honey.
Although beekeeping was brand new to him, Ishai took to it like a natural, and Yosef Gidron, the kibbutz beekeeper, noticed. Soon, Yosef asked Ishai to be his assistant, and he became a friend and mentor. While Ishai may not have known it at the time, his future career path had begun. It was an opportunity to learn beekeeping from a master, and Ishai worked with and learned from Yosef throughout four bee seasons. When asked about his half-century love affair with honeybees, Ishai said, "My mentor kept bees 'til he was 90. That's my role model."
During his time at UC Davis, Ishai was introduced to varietal honeys, and became particularly fond of Yellow Star Thistle Honey. He loved it so much that he began giving it away to his friends, and quickly realized he was going broke doing so. Thus, Moon Shine Trading Company was started with 180 pounds of pure Yellow Star Thistle Honey packed in canning jars.
