Ingredients

Raw honey naturally contains floral essence, pollen, propolis, and wax, making it a superfood.

**Our honey is not certified organic and there are a few reasons for this ! The main one is that bees are adventurers and often forage up to 3-5miles from their hives. Therefore, we have no control over where they get nectar and pollen. We strive to educate and inform about the importance of organic farming and the effects harsh chemicals have on our beautiful eco-system.

How to use

Perfect for spreading on bread, waffles, pancakes, or your favorite dessert.

FAQ

What gives honey its color, smell, texture, and taste?—The properties of honey change based on the flowers the bees foraged on. Honey gets its color, smell, texture, and taste from the nectar and pollen that a hive gathers to make it. A hive can produce different types of honey from season to season.

What is the difference between light and dark honey?—Light honey has a milder and softer sweetness, while dark honey comes with a bolder and richer sweet flavor. Think of it as similar to comparing white sugar with brown sugar wherein white sugar is just plainly sweet while brown sugar has a more complex flavor profile.

Why is my honey crystallized?—Raw honey naturally crystallizes. The honey will go back to a liquid state when it’s warmed up. You can either gently warm up the jar with warm water or just warm up the spoonful you are using.

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 a mesh or nylon cloth to separate the honey from impurities like beeswax and dead bees. Once strained, raw honey is bottled and ready to be enjoyed.On the other hand, the production of regular honey involves several more steps before it is bottled — such as pasteurization and filtration.

What are the benefits of raw honey?—Raw honey has many benefits. It is a good source of antioxidants, it has antibacterial & antifungal properties, and helps provide burn and wound healing on the skin.

Can you use raw honey on your face?—Yes! Using raw honey on your face can work as a treatment for acne, scarring, and dull or dry skin. Raw honey is more expensive than other kinds of honey, but it's relatively inexpensive compared to other skin cosmetics for your face.

Does honey expire?—No! 100% untreated honey does not expire as long as it is in a sealed container and stored in a cool, dry place.

Is honey better than sugar?—Yes, if you need a little extra sweetness, completely raw honey (like our Happy Honey!) is better than sugar as it contains more nutrients, enzymes, vitamins, and antioxidants than sugar. It is worth noting that honey does have slightly more calories than sugar, but it is also sweeter so you will need less of it!

Is raw honey good for you?—Yes! 100% untreated raw honey can be good for you in moderation. It has nutrients, vitamins, enzymes, and antioxidants that have been shown to improve your immune system.

How is honey made?—Honey starts from flower nectar, which is collected by bees. The nectar is brought back to the hive and passed on to house bees who chew it up and pass it from bee to bee. This mixture has too much water so the bees usually fan it and dry it out to remove the excess water. This eventually becomes honey which is placed in the cell of the honeycomb and capped with beeswax for storage until it is ready to be eaten by the bees!

Where is our honey from?—Our honey comes from our farm in Merced and several other farms around the central coast of California. It is 100% sustainably harvested raw honey.

Amazing toyon honey

I was initially captivated by the beautiful dark color of the honey. My first spoonful took me right back to my childhood. The flavor is thick, sweet and delightful. It has a distinct berry flavor which makes it perfect to enjoy by itself, and it also pairs perfectly with tea and toast.
