Frequently Asked Questions

What makes our local honey the absolutely best honey for the allergy season?

Not only does our honey include bee pollen from all seasons, we also include hand collected pollens from trees, grasses and bushes such as pine, cedar and oak.  Because honey is not generally harvested while the oak, cedar, pine and many grass pollens are blooming, these pollens are not present in honey.  Our local honey includes a mixture of four seasons of local honey blended with four seasons of hand and bee collected pollens.

[accordion-item_inner title=”Is your honey raw?”] [/accordion-item_inner]

Yes.  All of our honey is raw and bottled by hand.  We do not use a mechanical bottler that requires heating honey to high temperatures.

[accordion-item_inner title=”How are the varietal honeys made?”] [/accordion-item_inner]

Varietal honeys such as orange blossom honey, blackberry honey, raspberry honey are made by placing bee hives in an area where orange blossoms, blackberries, etc are in full bloom. The bees collect the nectar from the blossoms and make honey.  Larger orange groves, blackberry fields, etc. will yield the purest varietal honeys.  Therefore, the quality of the varietal honey will depend on the beekeepers ability to find the best possible locations.

[accordion-item_inner title=”If honey granulates, should i throw it away?”] [/accordion-item_inner]

No.  Raw honey lasts for millions of years.  Granulation is a natural process.  If possible, consume the honey in granulated form.  However, to reliquify simply place the bottle in a double boiler until the crystals have dissolved.
