What is raw honey and why is it so good? Raw honey is honey that has been spun out of the natural beeswax honey combs and contains enzymes and natural bee pollen. All the floral essences that came from the flowers remain and give our honey it’s amazing nose and taste, with a very smooth finish.
Our raw honey is not processed and ultra filtered like many commercial honeys are. Our honey is not stripped of flavors and goodness. Our honey is not heated to high temperatures to push through filters. Heat destroys enzymes and flavors.
It will have specs of pollen and natural beeswax. It may have an occasional honeybee leg (no worries). These are our “bona fides” and are our evidence of genuineness.
Raw honey will naturally crystallize and that is another characteristic of raw honey that is unheated, unprocessed, and pure. It is nice to slather or spoon without dripping. It will keep indefinitely over time.
Honey destroys bacteria and rest assured our honey is totally healthy and good.
It’s simply the best!
Raw honey in its pure healthy form.
Our raw honey is a spreadable, creamy, light colored, finely granulated spread harvested from Star Thistle flowers in pristine northern Michigan.
All the floral essences, enzymes, and small amounts of pollen remain. Raw honey has more floral notes than liquefied honey and the difference is noticeable and exquisite.
Our honey is spun from light colored beeswax combs which we harvest every fall and put into 55 gallon drums for cold storage.
When we need to pack our raw honey into jars we bring in a few barrels and bring it up to “hive” temperature of 95 degrees F so it will fall out of the barrel into our stirring tank where it is slowly spun into a smooth
