Our honey is produced in partnership with our wonderful bees using organic methods from mite control to feeding. We understand that the farm is comprised of a delicate ecosystem and we do everything we can to ensure that it will be steadfast for generations to come.
Our gals are happy NW bees that forage on raspberries, blackberries and clover and help us to pollinate most of our crops. They work hard for the honey and we are so happy to have enough to offer this special treat to our CSA members.
Our raw 100% pure unpasteurized honey is sold in 11 fluid ounce jars for $8 each. You know the farmer and every ounce of honey has been produced on our farm.
Notes on crystallization: This is normal and an indication that you have a jar of quality, raw honey! It is the natural tendency of honey to crystallize (become opaque and nearly solid). Certain varieties will crystallize sooner because of differing sugar concentrations in the nectar sources. Colder temperatures, especially below 65 degrees, will speed the crystallization process so please consider storing honey in a warm place, at least 70-75 degrees. Crystallized honey is still perfectly good to use and has not spoiled at all. Some prefer it because it does not run and spreads nicely. Crystallized honey can be slowly and gently warmed to around 104-110 degrees in a water bath or low oven to melt the crystals and return it to its original clear state. This is best done gradually and without overheating to make sure the natural enzymes are preserved and the honey retains its raw nature and original flavor. Resist the urge to microwave your crystallized honey! It is hard to control the temperature with microwaving and the honey can quickly become overheated. It is also common for a small amount of suspended wax to remain at the surface of non-crystallized honey. This is normal and an indication that you have a jar of quality, raw honey!
