Varietal (Type of Honey)
Wildflower honey, or polyfloral honey, gets its name because the bees producing it extract nectar from many different (or sometimes unknown) plant sources, typically within a few miles of their hive.
As seasons change and new plants come in bloom, bees will visit new sources of nectar to produce their honey. This results in honey unique to the local area, with a color and flavor that will shift a bit throughout the year.
Accordingly, you can expect late summer and fall harvests of this New York wildflower honey to be derived from the nectar of goldenrod & asters, but also commonly feature loosestrife, knotweed, knapweed, and thyme.
Harvests from earlier in the summer will feature more woods flowers as an additional nectar source...like raspberry, blackberry, honeysuckle. Occasionally, the bees will produce a lighter colored honey due to a heavy locust tree bloom.
At Neighborhood Hive, we sell only raw and unfiltered honey, and our New York wildflower honey is no different. Unlike most of the highly-processed honey you'll find in your local grocery store, our products are never pasteurized and have only had wax and other large particles removed before bottling. This ensures all the nutrients found naturally in raw honey, including vitamins, minerals, pollen, enzymes, and antioxidants are in tact when our products arrive at your door.
Not to mention, the taste will blow away your basic grocery store honey.
