      What is "Raw" honey? 

Raw honey is best described as honey "as it exists in the beehive." It is made by extracting honey from the honeycombs of the hive and pouring it over mesh to seperate the honey from impurities. Once strained, raw honey is bottled and ready to be enjoyed!

     Does Honey expire?

Well stored honey never expires! It can remain stable for decades and even centuries! Store your honey in an air tight glass jar located in a cool, dry area of your home!

     Why is your honey a different color than last time?

Honey gets it color from the nectar that a hive gathers to make it. Plants and flowers blossom at different times of the year. Each hive can produce radically different colors of honey from the different types of flowers they collect from. 

     My honey has become solid or crystallized. What do i do?

Crystallization is the natural process by which the glucose in honey precipitates out of the liquid honey. Simply place the honey jar in warm water until the crystals dissolve. You can also eat the honey in the crystallized form! Just scoop out of the jar and spread it on your toast or drop it in your tea!

     Why can't children under 1 year of age consume honey?

Honey may contain Clostridium botulinum spores that can cause infant botulism, a rare but serious disease that affects the nervous system of young babies under 1 year of age.
