I have been asked the following question by the occasional customer:
"Can I order another quart of the same honey from last year?"
To which I have to say, "No". But why? The answer lies in the key difference between us and many of the large honey packagers. Large packagers will take barrels of honey from many local beekeepers, all of which vary in color, clarity & flavor, & run it through a pasteurization & filtration process that removes all of the pollens that give honey its unique flavors. In this way they can provide a consistent golden, clear, & tasteless honey that is the same every time.
While it is desirable from a marketing standpoint to be able to provide customers with a product with the same look & taste every time, it is simply not possible with Cold Extracted Honey. Our bees will forage from the blooms of the season & therefore gather different percentages of different nectars to make their honey.
Next time you have have some of our honey in a glass jar, simply hold it up to the light & you will SEE what I'm mean.
