Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is 'RAW' honey?
A: Raw honey is honey that hasn't been pasteurized, or cooked. Most honey that is purchased in a store has been cooked at 120+ degrees for 20-30 minutes. This excessive heat kills valuable nutrients that are found in raw honey. Our honey is never cooked, nor is it pressure filtered. It comes straight from the hive, through a screen, and into our bottles.
Q: How should I store my honey?
A: First, never store honey in the refrigerator! This will cause it to crystallize. The best place to store honey is in a dark, room temperature environment, like a cupboard or pantry.
Q: What should I do if my honey crystallizes?
A: Simply place the jar of honey, with a tight lid, on the top shelf of your dishwasher and run it through a hot water cycle. Your honey will melt back down into delicious liquid.
Q: Do you give tours of your farm?
A: Unfortunately, we're not setup for tours. We don't have an actual 'farm', just a few bee hives, which we have placed away from our home.
Q: Do you sell bulk honey?
We only sell honey in the sizes offered on this online store. We do not sell 5 gallon buckets, or 50 gallon drums.
