Honey

I pull and process each frame of honey by hand myself.

My honey is a safe and honest food. I pour and store in glass jars. 

I keep beehives in a beautiful, protected spot in rural Madison County.

UPDATE 7/19/2020: Honey from PepperHarrow Farm and their 2020 lavender blossoms will be in very limited supply for both liquid and chunk honey. Harvest is expected by early August 2020.

I 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, especially if it is kept in a cool place. Honey never spoils, so don’t throw it in the garbage if it hardens! Set it in a very warm water bath as needed and it will re-liquefy.

One fun fact: all the honey in the picture below came from the same year, but different hives, different times of the year! The flavor and color of honey depends on the nectar used to create it.  Honey bees are quite miraculous in this way.
