Our pastures, teeming with perennial alfalfa, red and white clover, dandelions, chickory, and wildflowers, provide a perfect home for bees. We also plant annual species such as sunflowers to feed the bees and other wildlife.
Honey is an amazing natural product. In order to produce one pound of honey, 2 million flowers are visited by bees flying a total distance of 55,000 miles.
Scientific studies show antioxidants in honey might be associated with reduced risk of heart disease. Other studies suggest honey might offer antidepressant, anticonvulsant and anti-anxiety benefits. Honey has been shown to help prevent memory disorders. Topical use of honey has been shown to promote wound healing, particularly in burns. It is a topical antibiotic, too - with its low pH and its ability to produce tiny amounts of hydrogen peroxide!
We harvest the raw honey ourselves by hand and simply filter it before bottling it for your enjoyment. We do not heat the honey so that the anti-oxidants are not destroyed.
Honey has an unlimited shelf life. However, over time, all honey will crystalize (solidify). It is still perfectly safe to eat! You can reverse crystallization by heating to 150F in a water bath.
