1. Where is the honey from?
Our most popular creamed honey that are blended with different herbs are all New York State honey.
We are a New York City based company and most of our honey is from the United States with the exception of French Lavender Honey, Italian Truffle Honey, and some rare Brazilian Honey. We continue to seek unique honey from different regions. The origin of our honey is clearly specified for each variety.
2. Should I refrigerate honey?
Honey does not need to be refrigerated. It will only accelerate the crystallization process which will thicken the honey. Creamed honey may be refrigerated for this reason but not necessary.
3. How long does honey last?
Honey will never expire as long as the lid is tightly closed. Moisture will cause honey to ferment.
4. Can I feed honey to my children?
Yes, but not to infants under 1 as they haven't developed the enzymes to process honey and may cause botulism.
5. Why does my jar look half full or have an air bubble in it?
In the cold weather months our creamed* honey and other honey may become solidified ("crystallized") during shipping while the jar is left on its side. It may deceptively look as if some honey is missing from the jar. Please be assured all jars are weighed precisely to the amount stated on the label (honey is sold by weight not fluid ounces.)
- net 5.5 oz. creamed honey weighs 9.8 oz. with the jar and cap
- net 12 oz. creamed honey weighs 1 lb. 2.8 oz. with the jar and cap
You can leave the jar upright in a warm part of your home to soften or place it in a pot of hot (but not boiling) water. Please remember you are purchasing raw, unfiltered, and unheated honey and "crystallization" during cold weather is a natural process of honey.
*all creamed honey are meant to become thick or solid so it's spreadable with a butter knife.
6. Is there added sugar in your honey?
Absolutely Not! All pure, raw honey has a sugar content (17 grams per tablespoon) but this a naturally occurred unrefined combination of fructose and sucrose from the nectar of the plants the bees are pollinating. The bees then turn the sweet nectar into honey, a viscous food by enzymatic activity and water evaporation.
7. What are the nutrition facts of honey?
8. How long will it take to receive my order?
