Unpasteurized raw honey – straight from the hive.
We do not process our honey in any way, we do not add anything to it, and we do not take anything out. One of the reasons we do not sell pollen is because we believe the pollen belongs to the bees and the honey.
We run our honey unheated through coarse strain, and within minutes it goes directly in glass jars for storage.
Heated in order to kill any yeast to prevent
Keeps honey liquid and better looking.
Smooth and uniform in colour.
Heat kills most of the enzymes and
some of the vitamins.
Micro filtering removes all the pollen from
Pasteurized and micro filtered honey is
also called “dead honey”.
Raw honey contains all of the nutrients
necessary for good health: vitamins A, C,
D, E and high concentrations of the
B-complex vitamins including thiamin,
riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid.
Raw honey also has beneficial enzymes and
other nutrients. High heat kills most of the
enzymes and some vitamins, so pasteurized
honey doesn’t have as many health benefits
as raw honey. One of the enzymes raw
honey contains is amylase, which aids in
digestion by helping predigest breads and
other starchy foods.
How to Store Honey
Honey never goes bad. Store honey in tightly closed container, in a cool and dark place. There is no
need to refrigerate. Crystallized honey can easily be liquefied by gently warming the jar in a pan of water.
Do not exceed 45-50C in order to preserve the natural flavours, enzymes and colour of the honey.
DO NOT microwave honey or you will completely destroy everything good in it. If you microwave or
heat up the honey to boil – you will end up with a sugary substance without any health benefits not
deserving to be called honey.
Because our honey is not pasteurized or micro-filtered, and is being kept in a cold place, it has crystallized
solid in the jars. The pictures below show both crystallized jar and the honey after it has been liquefied
as described above. The white colour of the crystallized honey changes back to “normal” honey colour
