honey is 100% pure, unprocessed raw honey. This kind of
honey retains all the health benefits like the live enzymes,
trace vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, antibacterial properties,
but most importantly, preserves the natural taste and aroma
of the honey. We can say this because our honey never touches
anything but the hive, a pouring pitcher and the jar in
which you receive it.
Flow Hive™ is a truly amazing invention. It eliminates
a lot of the interfering with the bees traditional honey
extraction requires. It allows the keeper to pour the honey
directly from the hive to the jars that the end honey product
will be sold in. This benefit also gives us the ability
to say we are offering pure, raw, unprocessed honey and
really mean it. This differs
greatly from the processing traditional beekeepers must
do which involves physical disruption of the colony, lots
of strainless steel and movement of the honey from the hive
to processing equipment before it ever sees a jar. Our honey
is 100% pure, raw honey; never pasteurized or high-pressure
filtered. Unprocessed, unfiltered raw honey retains all
the health benefits like the live enzymes, trace vitamins,
minerals, anti-oxidants, antibacterial properties, but most
importantly, preserves the natural taste and aroma of the

is made up of 38.2% of fructose, 31% glucose and only 1.3 % sucrose.
Raw unprocessed honey contains many substances important to human
nutrition. It has all of the B-complex, A, C, D, E, and K, minerals
and trace elements: magnesium, sulfur, phosphorus, iron, calcium,
chlorine, potassium, iodine, sodium, copper, and manganese. The
live enzyme content of honey is one of the highest of all foods.
unprocessed honey has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal
properties. It promotes body and digestive health, it is a powerful
antioxidant, it strengthens the immune system, it eliminates allergies,
and is an excellent remedy for skin wounds and all types of infections.
Raw honey can also stabilize blood pressure, balance sugar levels,
relieve pain, calm nerves and can sooth ulcer symptoms. Raw honey
is also an expectorant and anti-inflammatory and has been known
to effectively treat respiratory conditions such as bronchitis
and asthma. Local honey also has the added benefit of reducing
symptoms of allergies. Consuming traces of pollen in the honey
may decrease the impact of some airborne pollen.
ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT HONEY
What is raw honey?
honey is not processed, heated or filtered in any
way. Raw honey is as unique as its floral source.
This is why the color may vary from one harvest to
the next. Our honey is poured directly from the hive
to the jars you receive it in. Other honey vendors
rely on disruption of the hive and several steps of
stainless steel processing.

does not spoil – ever. It does not need refrigeration
either. Just take care not to drop food particles
into the honey. Raw honey does crystallize. That is
perfectly natural and does not mean the honey is bad.
assume that crystallized honey is adulterated or ‘spoiled.’
In fact, the crystallization process is natural and
spontaneous. Pure, raw and unheated honey has a natural
tendency to crystallize over time with no effect to
the honey other than color and texture. What's more,
the crystallization of honey actually preserves the
flavor and quality characteristics.
When honey gets crystallized,
does that mean its “bad”?
NO. Honey does not go bad. Most honey will crystallize
over time, meaning you can’t see through it
anymore, and it becomes less liquid and
more solid. This is a natural process for honey, and
will happen sooner in
some than in others. It means the honey you bought
is raw and of the finest quality. Processed honey
takes forever to crystallize, because the pollen -
and flavor - have been stripped out.
do I fix crystallized honey?

water, in minutes the honey will be back to liquid

Why does honey crystallize?
crystallization of honey is actually an attribute
of natural raw honey. Why? Honey is a highly concentrated
sugar solution. It contains more than 70% sugars and
less than 20% water. This means that the water in
honey contains more sugar than it would naturally
hold. The overabundance of sugar makes honey unstable
so it is natural for honey to crystallize since it
is an over-saturated sugar solution.
two principal sugars in honey are fructose (fruit
sugar) and glucose (grape sugar). The content of fructose
and glucose in honey varies from one type of honey
to the other. Generally, the fructose ranges from
30- 44% and glucose from 25- 40%. The balance of these
two major sugars causes the crystallization of honey,
the relative percentage of each determines whether
it crystallizes rapidly or slowly. What crystallizes
is the glucose, due to its lower solubility. Fructose
is more soluble in water than glucose and will remain
should I store my honey?
Store your honey at room temperature. Even after opening,
you do not need to refrigerate the honey.

Honey vs. the Honey Bear
What’s the difference?
Mass produced and supermarket honey is a blend of
honeys from many places and floral origins. There’s
no way for you to know exactly where it came from.
What we do know is that it is processed, heated, filtered,
and treated so that it has that uniform color and
translucence that we have mistakenly come to know
honey is raw honey. It comes in many colors, textures
and thicknesses. Each honey is as unique as its floral
source. (And it does not come in a plastic bear -
at least from us!)
