Mikolich Honey is made from a variety of locations and flowers throughout Temecula and San Diego County. All of our honey is 100% raw, completely natural from organic wildflowers rich with enzymes, pollen, vitamins & minerals.
Mikolich Honey has been producing honey independently since 1985, providing the highest quality straight from our hives. A difference you can taste! You can catch our latest honey at the farmer's market! We are certified annually by the California Department of Agriculture to sell our honey which has strict regulations and guidelines to meet in order to sell our honey to the public.
Each season our varietals fluctuate depending the amount of rainfall and floral blossoms. 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 locations with specific wildflowers or crops growing. This is creates a color and taste variance between each lot of bees. We then extract each frame in the hive by hand to showcase its unique flavor!
Aside from having enough spring rainfall, we face other challenging environmental factors that have tremendously affected 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. We have donated hives to the UCSD research team in efforts of finding a solution to this worldwide epidemic.
