Raw Honey Straight from the Beekeeper
Raw honey is honey that has been spun out of the natural beeswax honey combs and contains enzymes and natural bee pollen.
Why Raw Honey?
For twenty-five years Sleeping Bear warmed and strained all the honey and put it in jars until one day Sharon, Kirk’s wife, suggested that many people would prefer honey in the natural granulated state. Not only does raw honey taste better with more nuanced floral essences, but it has more enzymes and healthful benefits.
Our Raw Honey
What distinguishes our real raw honey is the flavor of the Star Thistle nectar that thrives in wilds of Northern Michigan so well.
Sleeping Bear Honey
Our raw honey is a spreadable, creamy, light colored, finely granulated spread harvested from Star Thistle flowers in pristine northern Michigan.
All the floral essences, enzymes, and small amounts of pollen remain. Raw honey has more floral notes than liquefied honey and the difference is noticeable and exquisite.
Our honey is spun from light colored beeswax combs which we harvest every fall and put into 55 gallon drums for cold storage.
