Raw Honey 1 1/2 lbs.
What is raw honey and why is it so good? That's easy!
Raw honey is honey that has been spun out of natural beeswax honey combs, containing enzymes and natural bee pollen.
All the floral essences from the star thistle flowers remain, to give our honey an amazing nose and taste, along with a very smooth finish. Our raw honey is not processed and ultra filtered like mass-produced commercial honeys are.
Our honey is not stripped of flavors and goodness. Sleeping Bear Farms raw honey is not heated to high temperatures to push through filters. We avoid this process because heat destroys enzymes and flavors. The jar will have specs of pollen and natural beeswax. It may also have an occasional honeybee leg (no worries, this is perfectly safe!). These are our “bona fides” and are our evidence of genuineness.
This stuff is great! The consistency is absolutely perfect. Beautiful light "real raw honey" texture and definitely very spreadable!

Seriously this is the best honey I’ve ever tasted! I am having a hard time not slathering it on everything. The texture, the flavor, everything about it is delicious. If this keeps up I’m going to have to join a support group with Winnie the Pooh!
This was my first taste of raw honey. I instantly fell in love. I originally bought it for its antibiotic properties and I actually beat strep throat by taking a tablespoon every few hours until I felt better. The taste is incredible and like nothing else. It lasts forever too.
Absolutely delicious 🙂
I love the taste and texture of this product. I needed some local honey to help with my sinus allergies this year, so I tried Sleeping Bear Farms real raw honey for the first time. I feel this product has helped my allergy issues tremendously, besides the fact that it tastes delicious! Thanks!

WONDERFULLY DELICIOUS! 🙂 You won’t be sorry with Raw.
I found Raw Star Thistle Honey @ my Kroger store with products only made in Michigan. I decided to try the 1.5lb jar. I LOVE IT! The taste is much better than pasteurized amber version of Star Thistle Honey I had initially tried in the small "bear" shaped squeeze bottle. I recommend Raw Star Thistle Honey 100% over any pasteurized honey. I feel better eating raw honey, not sick in almost 3 years & allergies bother me less since I started eating this. This prompted me to research raw honey and it’s benefits.
Raw honey is the only natural sweetener with health benefits that include anti-microbial, heart-healthy and anti-inflammatory effects.
THIS PRODUCT IS FANTASTIC!!!! It’s a RAW FOOD which is wonderful for your body. There is no danger presented to you in eating this product. It is only infants, under 1 year of age, that must avoid both raw & pasteurized honey.

I bought this at the urging of the shop owner of a bee keeping store in Portland Maine in summer of 2013. Just tonight I finished the last scoop. I am not a honey expert but this is THE BEST honey I’ve ever had in my life and I will be ordering it again!
This is seriously the most delicious honey I’ve ever had! I put it on everything and sometimes it’s all I need for dessert. As if I needed to love honey more than I already do!
I just recently saw this brand in the Meijer store and thought I would try it – WOW it is perfect!!! I have been using honey for some time now but this raw honey is fabulous. I don’t use any artificial sweeteners anymore, always honey. I would like to be able to carry it in my purse to have with me at all times.
This stuff may be on the expensive side but to me it is worth every penny! As a Michiganian with seasonal allergies I eat a teaspoon of this every morning and not only is it delicious (I love the texture) but it helps significantly diminish my allergy symptoms.
This is unlike any other honey I have ever tried. It is more than delicious! Smooth, creamy…it seems to melt in your mouth. I have tried other specialty honeys and none come close to the taste of this. It is the only honey I will buy from now on.

This is the best honey I’ve ever eaten!! I eat it by spoon, right out of the jar, and also make tea with it, using raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar in hot water for a tea.
This raw honey is the best!!
Bought at Meijer and is the very good the flavor is excellent
This honey is absolutely delicious! It has a lovely, almost creamy texture that raw honey doesn’t always have and is very easy to stir or spread when stored at room temp. I always try to use local, raw honey and this one beats all the others by a landslide in both taste and texture. We use it as a sweetener in place of sugar in everything from oatmeal and cream of wheat to in-recipes and love it slathered on a slice of toast. I may, or may not, also eat a bit directly off the spoon every time I open the jar. Mmmm so yummy!

I’m a long time customer and absolutely love the raw honey. I use it in everything from baking to iced tea. The flavor and quality is the best I’ve ever used. The fact that I get to buy from a Michigan company is a big plus! Ty for such a wonderful honey! You also have to try the flavored frames…raspberry in a glass of iced tea is simply amazing!

Best honey I’ve ever had. I was so sad when I moved out of the mitten, but thrilled that there is an online store! My favorite is a spoonful in spice tea or on buttered toast.
