About Raw Honey

About Buckwheat Honey


Buckwheat honey has a deep, dark brown color, strong, pungent, molasses like earthy flavor and is high in mineral content and antioxidant compounds.

Buckwheat is neither a grass nor wheat, but is a fruit related to rhubarb and is one of the first crops cultivated in the United States. Dutch colonists brought buckwheat to North America where they planted it along the Hudson River.

Buckwheat was sometimes called beechwheat, because its seeds look like small beech nuts and it was an important crop in the U.S. until the demand declined in the 1960's. Today, it is primarily grown in Northern states such as New York, which is where our buckwheat apiaries are located. Read more here: http://tenonanatche.com/raw-buckwheat-honey.htm
