Curated Honey

Our Curated Honey is sourced from beekeepers located in New England as well as all over the world.

 

We source monofloral or single flower honey which means the bees predominately gathered nectar from one floral source located in close proximity either as a large crop or native species.

Honey varieties each have a unique flavor, color and aroma dependent on the type of flower visited by the bees during their nectar collection with honey color ranging from clear to very dark. 

 

Honey color and flavor can differ each year due to environmental and weather conditions when nectar is collected by the bees.
