Raw Summer Wildflower Honey (dark):
Raw honey, dark amber color with a full bodied natural flavor. This honey is produced from nectar gathered in July and August. It's richer color and deeper flavor reflect the rich colors of summer.

our Honey -
Our honey is Raw, unheated and unfiltered. That is, our raw honey is only strained to remove any bits of honey comb wax, so it still contains original pollen because it is not filtered. We do not heat the honey like commercial honey packers do to break down any sugar crystals. That is why their honey will stay clear on the supermarket shelf. Of course, heat above 115 deg destroys the antioxidants, important enzymes, vitamins and other beneficial attributes. Also many people find that heated honey looses much of its natural aroma and flavor.
We are a small producer with hives located in in and around Carlisle in rural areas away from commercial property and agricultural chemical use. Our apiary has been operated as an organic apiary for a number of years. The honey is produced in organic practice hives and is handled to organic standards. We depend on the bees for the rest.

This may help some appreciate honey bees a bit more:
Since one worker bee can gather 1/12 of a teaspoon of honey in her lifetime, how many bees would be necessary to gather 1 pint of honey? Hint: (3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon, 16 tablespoons = 1 cup, 2 cups = 1 pint). Answer can be found on this page.

Raw Spring Blossom Honey (light)
Honey Sticks (Spring Blossom)
Maine Blueberry Blossom - New!
Maine Blueberry Honey is from hives located in the blueberry fields of rural Maine. Honey bees are essential for pollenation to produce a good blueberry crop. At the same time they produce some wonderful honey! Available in 1 lb size, glass or plastic.
Comb Honey - (Ross Rounds)
Honey Comb Rounds (Raw Honey Comb) is now available. Approximately one half pound (8 oz net weight), 4 inch round, Spring Blossom only. Truly raw honey - still sealed in the bee's own beeswax honeycomb straight from the hive. Honeycomb is the purest honey, never touched or extracted.
Raw Creamed (Crystallized) HoneyRaw Honey placed directly in the jar after extraction and allowed to set at a cooler temperature to produce a smooth texture. This crystallized honey can be spread like butter or scooped into tea and stirred in. Use as you would liquid honey. One pound glass jar with wide mouth.

Beeswax Tapered Candles - 8 inch pair
Dinner Candles are 7/8" diameter to fit standard candlesticks.
We create our tapers using old world candle making techniques by hand dipping each pair repeatedly in melted wax to build up the perfect diameter. Each candle is dipped and cooled over twenty times before a pair is removed from the old-time oak rack used for dipping. When finished they carry the rich scent of beeswax and honey.
Keep out of
drafts when burning and away from fans - these tapers will burn virtually dripless.
Our hand-dipped tapers will burn dripless for more than one hour per inch. Base
diameter is 7/8". Cotton wicks - lead free - paraffin free.
