Blackberry Honey - Midsummer brings long, sunny days that stay bright well past dinnertime, and with them, blooming flowers of all kinds: blackberry, thistle, wild rose, sweet pea and numerous herbs. This is where the blackberry honey is harvested and has a deep, well-rounded body with a subtle citrus note that makes it perfect for both sweet and savory food pairings.
Fireweed Honey - Is the most unique organic wildflower honey from high-elevation mountain flower meadows more than 13 miles from the nearest town, farm, home or garden. Fireweed, the champagne of honeys, ends the harvest season in August. Memorable for its light, bright flavor, this honey comes from fireweed nectar gathered by bees above 3,500 ft in the Mt Baker National Forest.
Story of the Honey We get our honey from Beeworks Farm is a small, family-owned beekeeping business located right here in the heart of Whatcom County.
They're focused on keeping strong healthy bees and harvesting individual honeys from our fantastic NW botanical sources like maple, blackberry, fireweed and alpine flower. Going to great lengths to find the best forage for our bees and treat our bees with great care in order to bring the best honeys to you.
Beekeeper and owner, Rob Rienstra first became interested in quality food while working in a bakery in Switzerland more than two decades ago and brings this attention to quality to every batch of honey harvested. Working with our bees in nature to the rhythm of the weather and seasons is what we love to do and we know you will taste the difference in every jar.
