This is honey as nature created it—raw, real, and from the single floral source in which Bee Raw placed their hives. The bees gather nectar and create a honey that is the essence of that flower.
What is raw honey? – Raw honey is not processed, heated or filtered. Raw honey is as unique as its floral source this is why the color varies from varietal to varietal, crop to crop.
Bee Raw vs. the Honey Bear, so what’s the difference? – Supermarket honey is a blend of honeys from many different countries and floral origins. There’s no way for you to know exactly where it came from. What we do know is that it is processed, heated, filtered, and treated so that it has that familiar color and translucence that we have mistakenly come to know as “honey.” It is not. Real honey is raw honey. It comes in many colors, textures and opacities. Each honey is as unique as its floral source. (And it does not come in a plastic bear.)
How is Bee Raw “local”? – All Bee Raw beekeepers are local farmers who don’t have enough of a demand in their local market for their premium honey (pure, unprocessed, single varietal). In order to sell their entire production, they are forced to sell their honey to big companies at a low price. The honey is then processed and mixed with lower grade product for mass consumption (honey bear honey). Instead, Bee Raw pays the beekeepers premium prices for ALL of their premium product, and meet the demand for the product both locally and nationally.
