What makes honey so special?

Honey is a gift from nature like no other. It takes about 550 bees each gathering about a tablespoon of nectar over their lifetime, after visiting over 1 million flowers to make a single 8oz  jar of honey. Each female bee has many jobs over their short lifetimes from being a scout, guarding the entrance, housekeeping and nursing the brood. Male bees, called drones, have one job, which is to leave the hive once to mate with the queen. The queen leaves the hive once to mate with as many drones as she can then returns to the hive to lay over 1000 eggs a day until her death. Unlike the rest of the bees who generally only live about 6 weeks, a queen will leave for up to 3 years.  
Our three honey providers in this box, Pure Honey, Moon Shine Trading Co. and Backroad Beekeeping are all beekeepers themselves and come from a long line of beekeepers in their family owned businesses. They have a respect for the bees and keeping their product as natural as possible.

DETAILS ABOUT WHAT IS IN THE HONEY BOX.

Raw Natural Honey with Roasted Almonds

Pure Honey – Winters, California

This honey comes from family-owned hives and is 100% raw and natural. Raw honey means it is not heat treated, which kills many of the beneficial nutrients. Raw honey may crystallize, which is perfectly natural. Simply warm it slowly by putting the jar in warm water. Never microwave honey. The honey in this jar is a single varietal wildflower honey which means that the beehives were placed in an area that were surrounded by wildflowers mainly. But this jar of honey doesn’t stop there. Pure Honey then sources local almonds and roasts them and adds them to the honey. This honey is the solution to your tired toast routine, or add it to your fruit and chia seed morning bowl, or spread it on a warm croissant. 

Wildflower Raw Comb Honey

Moon Shine Trading Company – Woodland, California

Comb honey is a very special treat straight from nature. Each hexagonal cell is made of beeswax and identical to its neighbor. Bees collect nectar and place it in the cells then cap the cells with wax so the nectar can ripen into honey. This wildflower raw honey comb is artfully selected from the hive frames, ensuring enough honey is left for the colony. Comb honey can be eaten in its entirety, beeswax and all. Spread it on warm bread, or elevate your next cheese plate with this impressive looking delight. We like it on a Ricotta Crostini.

Salted Infused Creamed Honey

Backroad Beekeeping – Sacramento, California

Creamed honey is in a special category of its own. How Backroad Beekeeping creams there honey is a secret, but it is no secret how delicious their honey is. They then take it up a notch and infuse their creamed honey with unique flavors such as Golden Milk, Cinnamon or Vanilla Bean. This honey is infused with Pink Himalayan Salt, giving it that perfect salty sweet taste that is irresistible. It’s pure, 100% natural, raw wildflower honey. Try it on ice cream or spread on waffles or toasted bagels. It makes a great peanut butter and honey sandwich, and is delicious on a warm biscuit.
