Local Raw Honey

Quality You Can Taste

All honey we sell has been harvested from our hives which are kept in the same place all year.  While many operations are moving their hives multiple times per year to catch nectar flows across the country, our hives experience a more natural setting staying here in Maryland and Delaware all year.  This also guarantees that all the honey we sell with our label is produced right here in our neighborhood.

Fresh Honey from Apiary

Our honey is also Raw which means that it has not been heated and filtered to remove the pollen and enzymes the bees put in it.  This also means that our honey will crystalize with time, especially at cooler temperatures.

Crystallized honey is still perfectly fine to eat and the jar can be placed in hot water to re-liquify.  While some people dislike the appearance and texture of crystallized honey, crystallization is actually proof that it’s the real thing – raw and unfiltered.

We currently are offering an array of bottle sizes and options that will satisfy any need.

From plastic squeeze bottles in 2 sizes to multiple glass jars and larger jugs, we have what you’re looking for.

What Do You Mean By “Organically Produced”?

If you’ve seen our honey labels you may wonder what we mean by “Organically Produced in Maryland”.  What we mean by this is that our honey has been produced under what we would consider ‘organic practices’.  According to USDA law there is almost no place in the US where organic honey can be produced.  This is because it is impossible to control a bee colony’s forage area since they are ‘free-range’ in the most literal sense of the term.

Because of the stiff requirements for an ‘organic’ honey label there is no way we could actually produce a local and organic raw honey short of moving our hives to the remotest regions of the United States, which would then produce a honey that is no longer local to this community.

This is the reason for the “Organically Produced” label.  Our hive management practices coincide closely with USDA organic management requirements such as no synthetic chemical usage.  In fact, we go a step beyond that requirement by avoiding all chemical usage entirely.  Therefore, we believe that; short of the USDA organic label, our honey is actually closer to real “organic” local honey than what you can purchase from the super-market shelves.
