Why do people love Amish Honey?
We produce honey in the same way it was hundreds of years ago. We don’t heat or filter our honey, and we never make any adjustments for color or texture. Our customers love our hands-off approach. We let nature do the work!
How come the same honey comes in different colors?
The honey you see on most store shelves comes from big companies that have guidelines in place to make sure that their product is always the exact same color and consistency across hundreds of barrels.
Amish Honey isn’t like that! We work with small batches, typically across 5 to 10 hives gathered at one site. The differences in seasonal flowering from one area to another affects the color of the honey that the bees feeding off of them produce. Color variety in the same kind of honey occurs naturally, and we wouldn’t want it any other way!
Why is your honey so hard?
Because it’s natural! Unpasteurized honey that has not been heated or processed will always crystalize over time. To soften or liquify hardened honey, simply place the jar in a bowl of warm water.
Where is this honey from?
Our honey is harvested from high quality providers all over the world, but our company is located in Upstate New York.
What is raw honey?
Honey can only be called “raw” when it has not been heated to over 110 degrees Fahrenheit, has not been microfiltered, and has not been pasteurized. Unlike much of what you see on the store shelves, raw honey has more health benefits because it still contains its original healthy enzymes, pollen, and other natural elements.
