Local Raw Honey
Sarasota, FloridaOur honey is tested by the Florida Dept. of Agriculture and is free of all the chemicals they test for including two commonly found antibiotics. Reports can be read here and here. This is important because some beekeepers are using chemicals in their hives to help prevent or treat diseases and pests. We also do not use any pesticides on our farm and the county mosquito control does not spray our property or do aerial spraying over our home.
We have a few pints of honey still available.
Each jar of pure, raw, unfiltered 100% honey comes with a heart shaped piece of beeswax from our hives.
Our bees feed on a wide variety of flowers including bananas, passion flower, lychee, avocado, mango, pumpkin, Brazilian pepper, and many others. Our honey is always stored in glass.
Our 5 hives are managed with only non-chemical practices. We created a cement base to prevent hive beetle reproduction and have a water mote around the base to prevent fire ants. Our honey is 100% raw and is never heated or filtered ~ there will be a thin layer of beeswax and pollen. Consuming raw honey with pollen can help those who suffer from pollen related allergies.
