Frequently Asked Questions
Where are the hives located?
Mostly in Utah, Salt Lake, and Davis Counties. Many honey companies in Utah get their honey from Cache County and surrounding Idaho and Montana, but ours is about as local as you are going to get in the Wasatch Moutnain area.
Does eating local honey help with allergies?
Many of our customers are convinced that local raw honey has a significant impact on their allergies. Some of them see results in as little as a couple of weeks.
Is your honey really raw?
Yes! A surprising amount of local honey companies heat their honey up for bottling convenience and still claim it's "raw" because it's under a certain temperature (105 F and 118 F are common temperatures honey is heated up to). Our honey is completely cold processed and you can tell the difference. Yes, it takes forever, but we couldn't imagine doing it any other way.
The honey has solidified, is that normal?
Yes. Honey that is truly raw will solidify in a relatively short amount of time. It takes on a creamy texture that most people come to love. Just take a spoon or knife and stir it up a bit (kind of like mixing natural peanut butter). Doing an inch or two of the jar at a time will leave a good amount to work with. You can also put the jar in a warm window sill or a bowl of warm water.
