When you think of honey, two words should pop in your head, local and raw. Raw honey has not been heated above 118 degrees Fahrenheit and has not been pasteurized. The main benefits come from a unique blend of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and antioxidants. Locally produced honey, which will contain pollen spores picked up by the bees from local plants, introduces a small amount of allergen into your system. Theoretically, this can activate your immune system and over time build up your natural immunity against it.
There are four hives at Douglas Orchard & Farm. Our bee keeper extracts our honey and bottles it for us, raw and unpasteurized. We have both spring and fall honey available at the store.
Other honey products that are not from our honey but equally delicious are the flavored cream honeys made by Bee My Honey Apiary in Sutton. All flavors are by pure extracts. Also available are flavored honey sticks and honey filled hard candy.
