We’ve waited over a year for our first honey harvest and it’s finally here! You’re going to be blown away by the unique flavors! Since we have one hive, we never mix in honey from other hives. You’re getting honey from a single source.
Batch #1 has an incredibly floral flavor while batch #2 is much more earthy and sweet. (The girls briefly stored pollen in the honey supers, so that’s where the earthiness comes from). We may have forgotten to label which one is which, so you’ll receive one or the other!
Our girls and queen are incredibly strong and have never had any pest problems. You can rest assured that your honey and bees have never come close to any pesticides.
The honey harvesting process couldn’t be simpler. We remove a few frames at a time and take them inside where we cut off the honeycomb. After that, we mash it! This releases all of the honey from the comb. Afterwards, it’s strained to remove all of the bits of honeycomb. Lastly, it’s hand poured into each jar and sealed, ready for you! We never heat our honey so all of those beneficial enzymes and microbes stay happy and healthy.
Because your honey is 100% pure honey, it’ll never expire! If it does crystallize in the cupboard, remove the lid and place it in a pan of water on the stove for a few minutes. Stir before storing again.
