Nothing is added to our honey. The
bees know better than I do what
should be in honey! Our product has
no preservatives or other additives.
We sell it just the way the bees make
it. Our honey is produced with care
from wildflowers and trees that grow
near our farm east of Dallas,Texas in
Sunnyvale. Unlike the honey in most
grocery stores our honey is unique.
It is a local honey produced in the
Dallas area that year. Not a foreign
honey produced 10,000 miles away
last year or the year before. Our
honey comes directly from the bee
hive to you.
Really the bees do most of the work for us. A new hive is filled
with frames of foundation, called bees wax that has a hexagonal
pattern pressed into it. If there is nectar from flowers available to
the bees, they quickly draw out the honey comb in which they
raise their young and store pollen and honey. The brood nest of
a hive is at the bottom of the hive. This is called the brood
chamber. The top section of a hive are called honey supers and
there you will fine pure honey stored. The bees will warm and fan
the honey in order to reduce the moisture content. When the cell
filled the honey is ready, the cell is capped with a layer of wax.
We leave the bees as much as we expect them to need through
the winter and we harvest the rest. To extract the honey, we start
by cutting the wax capping off the honeycomb with a hot knife.
Next we load the frames into an extractor. This is a simple device
that spins the frames inside a stainless steel chamber so that the
honey flowers out of the cells and collects in the bottom. The
extracted honey poured through a mesh that removes small
pieces of wax, clumps of pollen, etc. Unlike what is done in large
operations, our filters are not fine enough to filter individual grains
of pollen (which are too small to be seen with the naked eye)
because we believe that this pollen is an important part of the
honey. As well, passing the honey through such fine filters
requires heating it,which we believe damaged some of the
delicate enzymes that are part of natural honey. We do not heat
our honey as part of the extracting/filtering process.
