Raw honey is far more than just a natural sweetener. It's one of nature’s purest foods with amazing health benefits. Raw honey contains amino acids, minerals, vitamins, and enzymes. 

By not heating our honey any higher than the natural temperature of the hive and not over-filtering, our raw honey remains unrefined and closer to nature. Raw honey tends to be opaque rather than the clear, golden color achieved through heating. 

Genuine raw honey crystallizes naturally. Crystallization happens to almost all honey varieties and can easily be fixed by dipping the glass jar in a warm (not hot) water bath and giving it a stir.

   Raw honey suggestions:

  • Wildflower raw honey pairs well with breads, nuts, cheeses, and fruits - especially drizzled on grilled peaches & bruleed grapefruit - as well as mixed in homemade salad dressings or yogurt parfaits
  • Honeycomb is not only a beautiful work of art made by honey bees, but also entirely edible, rich in carbohydrates and full of antioxidants
  • Spicy raw honey is delicious in a detox tea, or on cheese biscuits, cornbread, pizza, and even roasted brussel sprouts!

Beeswax is made in the hive by honey bees and has a beautiful naturally sweet smell (since beeswax picks up the honey and nectar scents found in honeycomb).

Like air purifiers, beeswax candles release negative ions that neutralize air pollutant particles. Negative ions clear the air of mold spores, pollen, dander, odors, germs, dust, and other nasty particles. (Most of these are high in positively charged particles, and in the atomic world, opposites attract.)

While burning, our beeswax candles emit the same light spectrum as the sun, providing a comforting ambiance. Beeswax candles last longer because they have a high melting point (highest of any wax).

   Benefits of regularly burning beeswax candles:

  • Increases sense of well-being and mental clarity, often called a natural anti-depressant
  • Improves breathing rate, decreases blood pressure, and relieves tension
  • Helps you sleep better by normalizing serotonin in the brain
  • Reduces headaches
  • Non-toxic and hypoallergenic aromatherapy

Whipped
Honey

Our 100% pure whipped raw honey is created by blending fine honey crystals into liquid honey and then placing it in cool storage to promote rapid granulation.

Depending on what part of the world you're from, whipped honey is also called creamed, churned, hard, spun, or set honey.

Whipped honey has a smooth, delicate, and delicious consistency that is perfect as a spread - it is also less messy! Our process produces a small crystal structure, which gives a smooth, thick texture. 

Whipped honey may be kept in the refrigerator if you prefer the texture to be firm, or at room temperature if you would like your honey to be soft and easy to spread. 

   Whipped honey is delicious:

  • As a sweetener in coffee, tea, smoothies, and baking
  • On a healthy snackie plate of bananas, honeydew, apples, pretzels, and popcorn
  • Spread on toast, crackers, bagels, muffins, and other indulgent treats like a peanut butter sandwich or Nilla wafers
  • Slathered over hot oatmeal, pancakes, or waffles
  • Mixed with mustard to make a tasty homemade honey mustard sauce

Buzz Us

What is raw honey?

Raw honey is natural, unpasteurized honey.  Our honey is extracted and run through a fine sieve to remove foreign particles such as bee parts, large pollen bits, and beeswax.  Raw honey retains all original pollen, enzymes, propolis, vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and antioxidants naturally found in the hive.  

Why is raw honey so beneficial?

The potential health benefits of raw honey are many due to its nutrient rich content and anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and antihistamine properties. Health professionals suggest raw honey made from the nectar of local wildflowers can reduce seasonal allergies -- boosting the immune system and acting much like an immunization by building up antibodies to allergens and pollen. 

What is wildflower honey?

Wildflower honey, also known as polyfloral honey, is made by bees that have collected nectar from a wide variety of local flowers and blossoms. The color, aroma, and flavor vary from season to season, depending on which wildflowers are in bloom at the time the nectar is collected.
