What about this Raw Honey!?! When consumed RAW, it is believed you receive all of the true elements of honey including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids that are beneficial for your body! We do not pasteurize or fine filter our honey. It is extracted and bottled it in its raw form, liquid. We lightly strain the honey for harmful pieces that can sneak past extraction like bee particles or stingers. You can catch our latest varietals at the farmers market!
We are certified annually by the California Department of Agriculture, which has strict regulations and guidelines in order to sell our honey.
Springtime rainfall is crucial to produce a honey crop, no rain means no honey! We produce different types of honey by placing the bees into various locations of wildflowers or crops during their season. This is creates a color and taste variance between each location and variety of floral source.
Aside from having enough spring rainfall, there are other challenging factors that affect our honeybees and honey production. We have yet to defeat our biggest obstacle of all, the Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) or the Varroa Mite. We, along with many other beekeepers across the nation, have seen significant losses over the past few years because of mite damage and pesticides. We have donated hives to the UCSD research team in efforts of finding a solution to this worldwide epidemic.
