Our final two batches of honey are available for purchase either online for local delivery in the 19460 or at a variety of local markets.
First up, Batch J! Available in two sizes – a 12 oz jar and a 16 oz jar, measured by weight, both glass jars. A very dark honey, probably mostly buckwheat honey with a blend of some clover, Japanese knotweed, and wildflowers. Not quite as dark as a true Buckwheat honey, but we like the lightness the wildflower content brings to keep this from being too intense. This is a dark red-amber color and has notes of coffee and molasses. If you love dark chocolate, red wine, and coffee, this is definitely the honey for you!
Very similar to Batch J, we have Batch K as our last batch of the year! It’s every so slightly lighter and a little bit more reddish than J, but still has honey made from the nectar of the same basic flower group. This one is only available in the smaller, 12 oz jars, but we kind of like the smaller size and it’ll probably be available in all the batches next year as well.
And that wraps up our VERY busy season! We broke records this year in terms of production, thanks in part to the amount of rain we had this summer. Despite all the extra challenges this year brought us, the bees have kept buzzing on just as usual, and it’s been a comfort to have their constancy as a sort of weekly refuge. There’s just something about that happy buzzing that sets me in a good mood on every hive visit. Now we finish up Winter prep and keep our fingers crossed that the hives are ready to go in the Spring!
