We currently don’t ship our local honey.
We have such high demand for our honey at our partner sites and local farmer’s markets, that we can’t reserve any inventory for internet sales. If you’re looking for fresh, local honey in NW Houston, follow us on Facebook and we’ll let you know when we harvest and where we’ll set up our table.
Unblended, Unheated, Unfiltered
All our local honey is processed as a product of a single yard. We have separate bottling equipment for each yard and label the bottles with the yard that produced the honey. We celebrate the inconsistency of honey as it varies by yard and time of year. Our light honey is extracted in spring or early summer when nectar sources produce a light, sweet, floral honey. As the year progresses and nectar sources change, the bees produce honey that is amber in color. Our Fall honey is mainly produced from goldenrod nectar, where it gets its distinct and robust flavor. All of our honey is raw and unheated and we only strain it to remove any beeswax from the extraction process. Sure, it may run slower and take a little longer to fill the bottle, but we keep all the great aromatics of raw honey, preserve any enzymes remaining from the curing process, and retain any local pollen captured in the honey.
No added chemicals
You’d think this would be a no-brainer, but most commercial beekeepers add chemicals to their hives to control varroa mites, small hive beetles, and american foulbrood disease. Bees move honey, nectar, and pollen throughout the hive to support young bees and prepare for storage, so who knows where those chemicals end up? Instead of putting chemicals in our hives, we rely on selective breeding, integrated pest management, and strong hives to keep our bees alive. We don’t add any chemicals to our hives and therefore, don’t add any chemicals to our honey. We sell it to you just the way the bees make it.
