Buckalew Honey

our bees and honey

 

Our bees are an important part of our farm.  They pollinate our fruits, vegetables and trees.

 

Our honey is 100% raw – from the hive to the bottle. Never heated. 

Raw honey is honey that has not been heated, pasteurized or processed in any way.

The differences between raw and pasteurized honey are substantial.

Raw honey is an alkaline-forming food that contains natural vitamins,

enzymes, powerful antioxidants and other important natural nutrients. 

These are the very nutrients that are destroyed during the heating and pasteurization process.

In fact, pasteurized honey is equivalent to and just as unhealthy as eating refined sugar.

 

We believe in sustainability across our entire farm, and the health of our bees is the most important factor for us.  

If we have a great season and they have a surplus only then do we harvest honey. 

The bees need at least 50 pounds of their own honey to survive the winter.  We try to leave them more than that just to be sure! 

For this reason we cannot guaranty honey every year, or the amount we will be able to sell.
