Wildflower Honey

Artisan Wildflower Honey

Wildflower Honey flavor is a reflection of where the hive was located and where the bees decided to travel to forage and pollinate nearby crops. This bright golden honey is rich and delicious with hints of honeysuckle and jasmine, one of the more popular varietals in our Honey House. Try it on top of greek yogurt, in baked goods, in raw treats, tea and coffee.

Wildflower Honey is delicious and is sometimes used for pollen-allergy therapy.

While there have been no peer-reviewed scientific studies that have conclusively proven whether honey actually reduces allergies, the theory is eating small amounts each day introduces small amounts of pollen into the immune system building up pollen allergens over time. We recently learned from a master beekeeper that as long as the honey contains pollen (raw and minimally filtered), it doesn’t matter where it is physically from to benefit from pollen-allergy therapy.

Our Artisan Wildflower Honey (created from a mix of nectars) is the product of foraging of bees as they buzz throughout a six-mile radius visiting flowers collecting and mixing their bounty.  At Waxing Kara, we sometimes identify artisanal honey by the season in which the honey is taken from the hive or the location of the hives.

Our Wildflower Artisan Honey comes from the nectar of wildflowers in the late Summer months. Wildflower honey is often used for pollen-allergy therapy. Eating small amounts each day introduces small amounts of pollen into the system and building up pollen allergens over time. Our most recent Wildflower Honey has a wonderful distinctive flavor and comes from upstate New York, mildly floral in nature with a strong earthy finish.

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.
