I pull and process each frame of honey by hand myself.
I keep beehives in beautiful, protected areas in rural Madison County. My honey is a safe and honest food. I pour and store in glass jars. I also have plastic squeeze bottles available for dispensing because I understand being practical — just ask me.
Oct 2023: I am working to unify all my hives in one place this month.
- – PepperHarrow honey will be available at their sales outlets after the State Fair.
- – Prairie honey will be available through this website. I also anticipate this honey being available in a special bundle of unique honeys in time for 2024 holiday gifts and charcuterie boards.
Once it is gone, we have to wait until next year.
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 turn (or crystallize), especially if it is kept in a cool place. Honey never spoils, so don’t throw it in the trash 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.
