We harvest honey three times a year: Spring, Summer and Fall. As each season has distinctly different plants in bloom, the bees gather honey with distinctly different flavors. Though flavor can be hard to describe, a good guideline is as follows: Spring honey is light and floral, Summer honey is sweet and fruity, and Fall honey is rich and aromatic. The best way to know is to try them for yourself!
Our bottled honey is extracted from the combs, gently heated, and then strained before bottling. Our straining cloth is coarse enough to allow pollen to pass through, but fine enough to ensure the honey is free from debris.
Comb honey is completely raw, unheated, and unfiltered. Bees are allowed to produce new, pristine combs and fill them with honey. When the honey is ripe, the combs are removed from the hive, cut into sections, and packaged for sale. The paper-thin beeswax combs are edible and typically eaten along with the honey. Try it with bread and butter, pretzels, or on its own: a true delicacy!
Chunk honey consists of sections of comb honey immersed in liquid honey. An old-fashioned treat that remains popular today!
