Honey

What about the honey, Honey?! We have bee boxes at the edge of our fields for our flighty friends. The bees pollinate all of our crops, which is why sometimes we get some funny looking vegetables! After the crops have been pollinated and the honey has been made, we then extract the honey comb and transfer it to the freezer.

Freezing the comb protects it from infestations of wax moths. Warm, gooey honey can be eaten directly from the hive, but freezing also benefits the storage of honey. After three days in the freezer, we remove it and let it warm back up to room temperature before removing the caps and emptying the honey into the spinner. After spinning for about 20 minutes the honey is then ready to be filtered and bottled and make its way to your table for tea!
