Raw, Unfiltered, Local
Our honey is harvested directly from the hive. It is never heated or processed. All of our honey is raw and unfiltered, to preserve it's natural qualities. Our Wildflower honey is collected by the bees located on our farm. In July, we moved them to the mountains of Hayesville, NC, where the Sourwood is abundant. Sourwood is one of the most requested varieties. Tina's parents have the pleasure of looking after our bees for the month.
Why Raw Honey?
Most honey available in stores has been pasteurized to extend shelf life. Pasteurizing (heating to high temperatures) destroys the health benefits that natural honey provides. Raw, unfiltered honey contains microscopic particles such as pollen, enzymes, and antioxidants that help aid in conditions such as seasonal allergies, wound care, and cell repair.
