About Our Honey
Bees produce honey from the nectar of blooming plants, and the nectar produced by one flower will be different than that of another flower. Our mission is to seek out distinctive California flora which produce honeys that have the qualities in aroma, taste, texture, and color reflective of their particular species of flower.
As many of you know, it has become increasingly difficult for hard-working honeybees to gather the nectar necessary to produce honey due to dwindling floral sources caused by the ongoing drought in California, the continued impact of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), and the increasingly harmful effects of habitat loss. We work closely with our beekeeper friends to bring you the highest quality and best tasting, sustainably sourced honey currently available.
All of our honeys are gathered directly from the hive and bottled unpasteurized. This allows the honey to maintain a multitude of health benefits which are often lost in traditional, commercial honey production processes.
Please note: Crystallization is natural for raw, unprocessed honey like ours. Don't worry, though, honey is good forever because of its antibiotic properties which keep it from spoiling! Crystallized honey can be enjoyed in its own right but, if you prefer a more liquid honey, you can soften your crystalized honey by placing the opened jar in hot water bath (make sure not to put the honey over direct heat or you risk changing the flavor and losing some of those great health benefits!) and stirring the honey inside until it liquefies.
