Waiting on the bees to make more! 2022 Amber Honey will be back in stock around September.
Our buckwheat planting paid off! The darker amber colour of this honey comes from our bees feeding on the buckwheat, wildflower, and phacelia we planted this spring.
This rich, amber honey has a malt-like flavour and a strong hardy molasses smell. It is not as sweet and floral as our golden wildflower honey, but it darker colour indicates that it packs much more of a punch of antioxidants. We're pretty convinced Mary Poppins was talking about honey when she said 'a spoonful of honey makes the medicine go down'. Clinical studies show that buckwheat honey supports immune function + anti-inflammatory effects.
Our 100% Ontario honey is raw + unpasteurized to maintain the beneficial nutrients. We call it 'liquid gold' because of local honey's ability to enhance + support our health. Honey is full of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and beneficial enzymes. Research indicates that it has anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral properties. It's kind of an 8000 year old secret weapon to supporting health.
We believe that keeping and maintaining pollinators on the property is our part in helping sustain the health of the ecosystem we call home as well as that of the world around us. When you support local beekeepers, you are supporting pollinators in your area.
*Honey should not be given to infants under 1 year of age. To comply with regulations, we can only ship our honey within Ontario.
