PRODUCTS OF THE HIVE
All of our hive products are generated employing sustainable apiculture practices ensuring healthy bee populations
All of our honey is from the North Shore of Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire. The honey is raw and strained (not filtered) and never heated beyond the temperature found in a bee hive. This processing ensure the honey maintains the enzymatic integrity, pollen, and flavor which customers seek from our products.
We offer honey in a variety of containers and we also offer customized bottling for special occasions.
Cut comb honey is drawn honey comb with the beeswax cappings. Sold in 4 by 4 inch cuttings is gaining in popularity as nutritional source of honey and pollen.
Each batch of honey retains the floral essences of the plants from which it was made, but the flavor of wax comb also differs according to what the bees ate and adds a richness to the flavor that extracted honey doesn’t have...you have a combination of flavors, textures, and aromas you can’t find anywhere else on earth.
Creamed honey is finely crystallized honey that can be used as a spread not unlike butter. We produce a very limited amount of creamed honey from our honey stocks. This product has been growing in popularity over the past several years and customers discover more uses for the form of honey.
Pollen is consumed by honey bees for protein. We trap a limited about of pollen and sell in varying quantities by the ounce.
Our pollen is never processed meaning it goes from the pollen traps directly into the containers.
Pollen should be frozen if it is not going to be consumed in a brief period of time.
Bees produce wax to make honey comb and to cap honey cells. When honey is harvested and or honey comb becomes too old it is harvested and processed into beeswax which has a myriad of uses from arts and crafts to candle making to cosmetics to coating tools to lubricate and prevent rust.
Our wax is sold in 1 pound blocks in varying color grades which determine the price.
We offer various lengths of tapered beeswax candles and as beeswax decorative candles
