Honey

I keep beehives in a beautiful, protected spot in rural Madison County. I pull and process each frame of honey myself, then pour it as space and time allow.

Comb and liquid honey are available for purchase through PepperHarrow Farm. There is a very limited supply. For an insider peek at the hives on the farm and fun bee and honey facts, click here — you’ll get interesting emails from me every now and then.

If you buy in June, the honey will taste and look different than the honey you buy in October. The flavor and color of honey depends on the nectar used to create it. (see honey bears in the photo)  Honey bees are quite miraculous in this way.

I believe in honest food, and am here to tell you that my honey is:

  • filtered one time with a coarse filter, so you may find pollen grains in your honey.
  • possibly going to crystallize. Honey never spoils, so don’t throw it in the garbage if it hardens! Set it in a very warm water bath.
  • from Madison County. I believe in bioregions and sustainability.
