Our specialty Holistic Cappings Honey this year is primarily from Goldenrod, Knotweed, and Fall Aster flowers... It's the best yet! :)
This blend of flowers makes the honey especially helpful to fight Goldenrod or Ragweed allergies! Eat a spoonful any time you experience allergy symptoms. Then during the worst seasons, use a spoonful morning and evening to avoid flare ups. Friends of ours have used this honey to reduce allergy affects within hours. After several years of use, allergy flare ups stopped all together!
Aside from allergy fighting, the Knotweed in this honey gives it high levels of Iron and antioxidants... not to mention the natural healing properties of Knotweed that can battle Lyme's Disease. Knotweed also creates the darker hue in this honey compared to lighter honey some other years. You may notice the especially rich flavor profile due to the different types of wildflowers this honey comes from.
In case you are new to "Cappings" on raw, unfiltered honey, it is a layer of crunchy bits of pollen, propolis and honeycomb that tops each jar. This is honey the way the pilgrims would have eaten it… straight from the hive with bits of honeycomb still in it. These nutrient-rich, immunity-building touches of nature can be chewed like gum. Your children might fight over them! :)
The next unique thing, aside from the cappings, is this honey's smooth, creamy texture. All raw, unfiltered honey will naturally crystalize with time and result in "grainy" honey. But this is different... It's fine, creamy honey that is a delight to eat by the spoonful! :)
Holistic Bee-Keeping: Our bee-keepers embrace holistic, low-stress, bee-keeping methods to keep the bees healthy without any of the synthetic chemical miticides common to industrial beekeeping. We protect against mites with organic formic acid which is naturally present in honey. So it’s not just people who appreciate our holistic commitment. The bees are happy too!
No High-Fructose Corn Syrup ever: These bees are never given high-fructose corn syrup to boost honey production or to feed them cheaply during the winter time. The only thing they eat is real honey just like God designed. This results in healthier bees and purer honey for us all.
100% RAW: Nothing Added. Nothing Taken Away: You get all the live whole-food enzymes and vital nutrients as a natural gift from the bees. Our honey is never heated, filtered or diluted with water! It is pure honey direct from healthy bees thriving on mountain wildflowers.
It Lasts Forever: Holistic Honey never spoils. And it never needs refrigerated either. It will solidify with time but that is natural too. In fact, the quickness with which our honey solidifies is a powerful indicator of its rawness. To soften, place the jar in warm water. (But not over 105 F. or you'll kill the enzymes)
Awesome Flavor: You're sure to love the unique flavor of Holistic Honey. Eaten right from the spoon, or used as a sweetener for other foods, it is always a pleasure to be cherished.
Nature's Diversity: The color and texture of our honey is decided by the bees. The variations depend on the local varieties of wildflowers and other plants from which they forage. We wouldn't change it if we could... Enjoy!
