HONEYS

 

Turmeric Honey - Turmeric Honey is a show stopper.  It is made with our turmeric, local honey, apple cider vinegar and black pepper.  It pours like syrup (not stiff like honey) and works great in salad dressings, mixed drinks, seltzer, hot water or tea, or by the spoonful!

Elderberry Turmeric Honey - Elderberry Turmeric Honey should be in every household.  It is delicious and has powerful, healthy ingredients: local honey, our turmeric, blueberry juice, and elderberry juice.  A teaspoon a day…

Ginger Honey - Our Ginger Honey is made with our Organic ginger, Local honey, and Organic apple cider vinegar.  It is the perfect choice for those who love the ginger syrup, and want an option with a local sweetener.

RAW Honey from Invisible Cities Apiary - It is simply, the most beautiful, and environmentally responsible honey we have ever seen. We have utmost respect for these bee keepers and their practices. They harvest seasonal wildflower honey in Vermont. Bees from one hundred colonies—managed without using pesticides or antibiotics—gather nectar from basswood and buttonbush, knotweed and clover, goldenrod and aster. Their honey is raw (unpasteurized) and only lightly filtered; it retains enzymes, traces of wax and pollen that figure into its flavor and healthful properties. Crystallization is normal as weather cools.
