About our Honey

We pack and sell honey from beekeepers who do not treat their bees with anything including chemicals, organic acids, essential oils, or sugar dusting, who do not medicate their bees with anything including antibiotics and who do not feed their bees with sugar, high fructose corn syrup, pollen substitutes or any other artificial foods.  The bees all live in stationary, non-migratory hives and have the pollen and nectars they have collected and processed as their food sources.

Our honeys are raw, unheated and unfiltered.  We receive them in crystallized form in barrels, hand scoop them and gently warm them enough to bottle them.  We only use glass jars and bottles and metal caps

.

Because the honeys are unfiltered, they all contain traces of pollen, propolis and wax.

Golden Rule Honey is currently offering honey from two vastly different geographic areas.

Arizona Rangeland Honey, produced by beekeeper Dee Lusby, is from bees that live in the remote desert rangeland of southern Arizona.  These bees forage entirely on wild desert flowers and blooming trees on ranches and wildlife preserves, far from cultivated agriculture.   The honey that they produce is very thick (around 14% moisture content) with a natural crystal that ranges from smooth and creamy to slightly crunchy as the seasons progress.   The flavors and textures of each barrel of honey vary by bee yard location and time of season but generally have a unique buttery undertone with hints of caramel and citrus.   As we do not mix or homogenize the barrels, each batch is unique.

Kirk Webster’s Vermont Honey is produced by beekeeper Kirk Webster in the Champlain Valley of Vermont.  This honey has an incredible creamy, silky texture (the moisture content is around 18%) with a very fine, smooth crystal.  Many people ask us if it is “creamed honey”.  It may look and taste that way but we can’t take the credit for what the bees do on their own.   Vermont generally has one crop per year so this honey is more consistent from barrel to barrel.  The current crop has been described by our customers as having subtle flavors of clover, lavender, lemon and apples.
