Frequently Asked Questions

Our honey is harvested by removing frames from the hive that are filled with honeycomb. The honeycomb is then extracted using a centrifuge extractor to spin out the honey, which is then strained through a sieve and bottled. Our honey is never heated above hive temperature to allow all the natural benefits of raw honey to remain intact.

The color and flavor of honey are dependent on the type of flower nectar that the bees collect. Generally, lighter honey comes from flowers with lighter nectar, and darker honey comes from flowers with darker nectar. Different colored honey has different flavor profiles.

Honey has an indefinite shelf life if stored properly in a cool, dry place. It may crystallize over time, but this is normal and can be easily remedied by placing the honey jar in a warm water bath (110 degrees) until the crystals dissolve. Honey can also be consumed in its crystallized form.
