LOCAL HONEY

About Our Honey

The diverse flora of the Pacific Northwest provide rich nectar sources for our bees, which in turn produce some of the most beautiful, delicate, and delicious honey found anywhere in the world.

We manage apiaries within Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve, an historic farming area on the prairies of Whidbey Island.  Cultivated plants, hedgerows, and weeds offer abundant bee forage.  We harvest surplus honey from our colonies each summer, strain it to remove small bits of hive debris, then pour directly into jars.  That's it!  

After harvest, we assess a grade and color according to USDA honey standards.  Lastly, samples from hives within each foraging area are sent off for pollen analysis to provide an estimate of floral composition.  While this step validates the floral origins of our honey, it also offers consumers a connection to both the land and history of Whidbey Island.
