Autumn Honey is Mild, Earthy, Delicious and Rare

Autumn Honey is mild, gently floral, and lightly sweet. It’s perfect for everyday use, and is especially good in tea, on oatmeal, and over fresh fruit. This honey hails from our Chesterhaven Beach farm-you can’t get it anywhere else!

We don’t provide pollination services, our hives sit in the same spot all season long. We plant lots and lots of indigenous plant material specifically farming for bees on close to 60 acres of land that faces the Chester River.

Our Autumn honey is often used for pollen-allergy therapy. By eating small amounts of raw honey daily, you may gradually be able to build a pollen resistance. People often think that they need to ingest honey from their exact neighborhood in order to achieve this type of immunotherapy and it’s not so, ingesting pollen-rich, raw honey from anywhere will help battle seasonal allergies.

Every Honey Tells a Story

I started beekeeping six years ago and covered all of the details in my blog and my YouTube channel. My mentor, Dale Large, a fifty-plus-year beekeeping veteran has taken the lead with my apiary and I am his devoted protégé. I am blessed and humbled by the amazing honey that the bees are making – from our farming efforts, and continue to expand to increase the amount of honey that I can offer from my own apiary on Chesterhaven Beach Farm.

About Small Batch Artisanal and Varietal Honey

Like wine reflects the complexity of the soil and weather, honey tells the story of the hive surroundings in the same way. Our Waxing Kara® honey is nature’s blend from Chesterhaven Beach Farm. Each year, we add more plants and trees to support the bees. This is a years-long process, and each year the honey will be different.

Varietal Honeys (made with nectar from one type of crop) are true labors of love by the beekeeper, who carefully sets hives in the center of cultivated fields for bees to provide pollination services just for the brief time of blossoming. Since bees will fly up to six miles to find nectar, the challenge in achieving varietal honey is to provide enough crops of one type to satisfy the hive.

We don’t do any fancy blending, colorizing or infusing, nor do we pasteurize or boil honey. Pasteurization destroys all of the pollen, enzymes, propolis, vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants and minerals in honey. We sell only raw honey that’s been minimally filtered. We grow our own and buy from other small growers to keep pace with growing demand for honey in our region. We bottle, label and package by hand at our Honey House in Owings Mills, Maryland.

Care of Honey

Honey is a “perfect” food with an indefinite shelf life. Store in airtight glass, away from direct sunlight. Do not refrigerate. It’s not unusual for some honey to crystalize over time. It’s not a bad thing, it proves the honey is raw. If cloudy or crystallized honey doesn’t appeal to you, reconstitute by placing the glass jar in a pan of water that has been brought to a boil and removed from heat.

    We love the Autumn honey…perfect on warm muffins on a cool, fall morning!

  2. Kim

    I look forward to using this honey in my tea every morning. It has a wonderful, full-bodied flavor that is not too sweet and enhances the experience of my teas. My favorite of the Waxing Kara honeys I’ve tried so far.

  3. Allison

    I loved this one. I found it very versatile! My favourite way of using it was on a cheese board with strong, sharp cheddar and mild brie. I left it right in the bottle because it’s so pretty!

    Totally love this honey. Not overly sweet and no lingering aftertaste. Am so enthralled with it that I ordered enough for holiday gifts for friends! Hopefully, they will be devotees now, too.

      Thanks Dawn! Did you see that our Autumn honey was included it the “Things we Crave” Holiday Gift Guide in Food & Wine Magazine this month?! ;) Enjoy!

    We received this as a gift from a friend. This honey is so amazing we ordered some for ourselves. And then we ordered again. And then I called to see if I could buy the Autumn Honey in a larger size because are going through so much of it. This is fabulous with tea. A very unique yet wonderful flavor. Look forward to it every day. Being exposed to Waxing Kara has turned me into a wannabe honey connoisseur!

      Thanks so much Robert! We only get a small amount of our Autumn Honey, we agree it’s very special. I don’t know if you have tried our Spring Honey. That too is very delicious. Enjoy!

    Ordered another Autumn Honey for this time of the year and just received it. I love the honey and also got the lollipops and they were great , My family loved them also and will be getting more soon. The only place that I get my honey from…And Kara is the best…I got to try another type of honey.. Kara, what is your suggestions??

    • Kara Brook (verified owner)

      Hi! It’s great to hear from you. So our Spring Honey is also very good. A lot of the same notes, just a little “brigher” and a little less “caramel” than the Autumn varietal. Between us, we are launching a limited batch of Blackberry honey in the next few days, so try that. It’s also terrific and very different from our honey. Look for the launch on or around January 22nd or 23rd. Thanks!

  7. Jennifer Bland

    This was my first experience with Waxing Kara and the Autumn honey. My experience with both was awesome. I specifically chose this honey because of the pollen and my allergies. My allergies are improving and this pairs well with any food or tea. So glad I found this company on Google. I will be a returning customer!

      Jennifer, Thank you so much! This is wonderful to hear and we’ll look forward to seeing you again and again!
