My husband John has been honing his beekeeping skills for the past several years, with help and guidance from an experienced beekeeper and friend. He has slowly increased production and now offers our artisanal honey for sale at two local stores and here at our webstore. Sales have been very good and our demand is exceeding our supply. To keep our local honey flowing, we have brought another friend and master beekeeper Warren Neyenhuis on board. He grew up in a beekeeping family and his hives produce some of the best honey that I've ever tasted. We greatly appreciate the addition of his harvest to ours. Honey from our region of Montana is very sweet and mild, clear and golden. Its unique flavor is derived from hay fields, meadows and riparian streambanks where indigenous plants and wildflowers flourish. Our bees gather nectar in a natural environment where they are not exposed to pesticides. The resulting honey is flavored by wild bergamot, wood's rose, sweet clover, red clover, hounds tongue, blazing star, diamond willow, chokecherry, serviceberry, sanfoin and alphalfa, to name a few.
Honey from this part of the world is considered to be some of the finest in the world and we are excited to share ours with you! *Note: Natural, raw honey crystallizes over time. To slow this process down, store your honey in a warm place. In winter we store ours on a shelf over our woodstove. To return crystallized honey to a clear state, simply heat jars on your stove in hot water (130 degrees is optimal) for several hours or until clear. It's not advised to use a microwave.
