ABOUT OUR HONEY
Where are our hives located?
Our hives are situated in areas surrounding Los Angeles, including the beautiful Santa Monica Mountains, which borders the Pacific Ocean, and the majestic San Gabriel Mountains.
Both of these locations are distant from modern intensive agriculture and the associated pollution and pesticides.
Our hives are located near thousands of acres of National Park and National Forest. While we cannot guarantee that the honey is organic (bees can travel up to 5 miles from their hives), most of the surrounding area is free from harmful chemicals and pesticides.
Pure Local Raw
The honey in our jars is identical to the honey found in the hive. It's pure, meaning that we haven't diluted or added anything to it.
It's raw because we haven't filtered out any of the goodness, such as pollen grains, nor have we heated our honey, which would destroy the enzymes that are beneficial for your health.*
Our honey is sourced locally from the Malibu/Los Angeles area, so you know which kind of flowers the bees are visiting for their nectar and pollen.
*Much of the honey that you see on the shelves of supermarkets is filtered and heated in order to maintain a clear liquid consistency. This honey has none of the important ingredients that make honey good for you.
What are the health benefits for honey that is pure, local, and raw?
There have been numerous studies that attribute a varied range of health benefits to consuming raw honey like ours.
Raw honey consists primarily of pure sugar, containing no fat, and exhibiting a high level of antioxidants. This implies that honey is a healthier alternative to refined sugar and other extensively processed sweeteners.
Moreover, it possesses antimicrobial properties and has been utilized in medicine since ancient Egypt for treating wounds and burns.
Research has additionally indicated that raw honey can assist in managing seasonal pollen allergies, as well as in soothing sore throats and coughs. There is also evidence suggesting that its potent antioxidants might aid in preventing chronic conditions such as heart disease and cancer.
