This raw naturally crystallized honey is both unheated and unfiltered.
Because of this, the delicious flavor and many healthy properties remain intact. This honey is gathered from a variety of floral sources, primarily legumes such as clover, alfalfa, and birdsfoot trefoil.
Bees also gather nectar from trees, dandelion, and goldenrod, among many others.
Each barrel of honey produced is a floral snapshot of a particular area at a given time. The exact makeup of this honey will vary from year to year and even from bee yard to bee yard.
In order to keep a consistent product, Champlain Valley Apiaries blend their Vermont honey with other premium honey produced in the U.S. and Canada.
Bees are cared for organically, and during the winter, they leave hives with enough of their own honey for survival..
