This darker honey was harvested from apiaries along PCH, from Malibu Canyon to the Ventura County Line. It was harvested at the end of the summer when the buckwheat and late seasons coastal daisies are in full bloom. It is a rich, full-bodied honey with a thick texture.
Eli's Bees honey is harvested from the microclimate zones and diverse ecosystems throughout the Santa Monica Mountains. As each one of Eli's Bees honey varieties are harvested from one location at one particular time of year, our honey embodies the natural complexity of Southern California floral landscape.
Eli's Bees honey is not filtered or pasteurized; each honey has its own unique textures, colors, and taste profiles. Each run retains small amounts of pollens, plant enzymes, and the natural complex sugars found in the flowers.
Each jar is labeled with a location and harvest date identifier.
NOTE: This product is raw and at times will include pollen, bees wax, or bee parts. Crystallization of honey is normal. If you wish to return solidified honey to a liquid state - place in water bath (@90F) for 1 hour. DO NOT HEAT ABOVE 104F.
