Wildflower honey and natural bee products.

Naturally-produced artisan honey & other bee-crafted items.

Artisan honey, soaps, lip balms, and more from happy honey bees!

Not all honey is created equal!
Ours is made with help from rescued Flagstaff bees.
Born here.  Raised here.  Happy here.

Our Flagstaff honey bees have come from bee removal rescues that we’ve done throughout Northern Arizona, and were not shipped in from around the country, nor driven around the nation packed on trucks for commercial pollination services.

Our comb-aged wildflower honey and bee pollen is a blend from our own Flagstaff rescued bees and other trusted beekeepers we work with, for maximum floral variety and nutritional benefit.  We believe that makes the best-tasting and most beneficial all-natural honey you can get!

We have easy online ordering and offer shipping, as well as local Flagstaff delivery of all our honey, soaps, lip balms, and more.  Give our honey a try!  We guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

Want to sample before you buy?  We have small 3oz jars available!  Perfect for comparing our honey to what you’ll find on the supermarket shelf.  Take the taste test challenge!  VISIT THE ONLINE STORE

Honey Q&A

What does “naturally-produced” honey mean?

It means we don’t mess with our bees, and as a result, don’t mess with the honey.  No antibiotics, supplements, or feeding our bees nutrient-bare high fructose corn syrup as a replacement to the honey that is taken from them.  This is often a practice with large commercial beekeeping operations.  We won’t do that.  Our bees deserve better.  We rescue and raise healthy, happy bees!

What is comb-aged honey?

Comb-aged honey means we allow the honey to mature naturally inside the honeycomb for some time before uncapping the beeswax cells and extracting the honey.  This results in smoother-tasting honey which is less acidic, and more akin to what the bees themselves use.  Honey is more than just dehydrated sugar water.  When bees collect nectar, it naturally contains and mixes with additional nutrients and enzymes within the bees “honey stomach” on the way back to the hive.  The bees place the collected nectar in the small beeswax cells and other bees fan their wings to reduce the water content before sealing the precious golden liquid inside.  In a healthy hive, the bees leave this cell capped while the enzymes in the honey work to mature it.  Once ready or needed, the bees open the cell and suck out the sweet honey.  Often, when many beekeepers pull honey from beehives they uncap it right away, heat it to prevent crystallization and to aid in filtering, and jar it right up.  The heating process kills the natural enzymes and sometimes leaves honey which is more acidic or sharp in taste.  We prefer to have our honey the way the bees do, comb-aged, nutrient-rich, and smooth as a baby bee butt.

What is raw honey?

Simply put, it’s not cooked to death.  Natural honey is a pure food that never spoils.  Often in commercial operations, honey is super-heated in order to help prevent natural crystallization and make it easier to pour into jars.  In the big bottling factories, the heated honey becomes a very runny liquid and this helps make ultra-fine filtering happen.  This overly-processed honey is stripped of beneficial pollen, nutrients, and key enzymes which make honey what it normally is…a natural superfood.  We don’t kill or remove those nutrients in the honey our bees produce.  It’s all there, the way the bees make it, the way it should be.

What is honey crystallization?

Why does honey crystallize? Honey is a complex mixture of natural sugars from the nectar that bees collect.  Honey doesn’t go bad by itself, but it will crystallize or firm up over time.  All honey does.  This happens as the sugar chains get together and form a crystalline lattice structure, bonding themselves to one another and growing crystals.  Remember rock candy?  It’s pretty similar.  This doesn’t mean the honey has gone bad or spoiled, just makes it a bit more difficult to remove.  Placing your jars in a warm water bath on low heat or in a sunny windowsill will help these crystals melt and turn your honey liquid again.  Although possible, we recommend you never heat honey in a microwave as it destroys the beneficial enzymes and nutrition, and can also make your honey become superheated and dangerously hot very quickly.

Isn’t raw honey supposed to be white and creamy?

Nope.  You’re thinking of spun, creamed, or whipped honey- which is sometimes sold simply as “raw honey”.  This is usually the result of introducing tiny honey crystals into liquid honey and allowing those tiny crystals to become the blueprint size for the crystallization process that happens within the jar.  This results in tiny crystals throughout the jar and a spreadable texture to the honey, rather than larger crystals that lock together and make it more solid.  Oftentimes you will see raw honey that is white and creamy, but not always.  Raw honey simply means it’s not overly-heated and can still be made and bought in liquid form, especially if it’s freshly packed.
