Our Northern honey comes from eastern Massachusetts, our home. With such an abundance of floral sources we are able to offer our customers a wildflower honey that is very floral and complex in taste. We also harvest a limited crop of monofloral honeys: Clethra, Black Locust, Japanese Knotweed, and Basswood. Each honey has a unique flavor profile.
Our honeys are raw, local, unfiltered and Kosher Parve and Kosher for Passover certified.
Every batch represents the season's harvest and what transpired in Massachusetts during the year.
Wildflower Honey, 1-lb jar: $12.00
All unfiltered honey contains trace amounts of pollen. Our infused honey is our MA wildflower infused with extra fresh pollen and propolis collected from our hives. The result is a delicious nutty tasting honey. We recommend it to allergy suffers, or someone looking for an extra energy boost.
Pollen and Propolis Infused Honey, 8oz jar: $11.00
CLETHRA (Clethra alnifolia):
This shrub is found blooming in the wetlands of eastern Massachusetts during early August. Its strong, spicy-sweet scent is a powerful attractant to honey bees and many other pollinators. Clethra honey has a peppery, licorice taste. A truly rare treat, we recommend you enjoy this honey by itself, or paired with your favorite cheeses.
Clethra Honey, 9oz jar: $12.00
Japanese Knotweed (Fallopia japonica):
These towering bamboo like plants are a rich source of late season honey. The honey our bees gather from these plants is dark, robust, with an earthy, nutty, sweetness that stands well on its own, pair well with cheeses, breads, and add a real signature to a dish.
Japanese Knotweed Honey, 9oz jar: $12.00
Black Locust (Robinia pseudoacacia)
The Black Locust tree , with long hanging clusters of white fragrant flowers, brilliantly decorate the landscape, and welcome our bees to a new season. Black Locust honey is light on the palate, with a sweet zing. This delicate honey is an excellent pairing for fruit, deserts, or by itself.
BASSWOOD: (Tilia americana)
The majestic Basswood tree begins to cast out thousands of cream colored blossoms in late June. Basswood honey has a distinctive biting flavor with a minty lasting finish that goes well with teas, salad dressings, and many recipes.
Basswood Honey, 9oz jar: $12.00
