Pastoral Flower...a rich blend of Alfalfa & Sweet Clover
The gathering of these two floral sources and their blending is an ode to both their place in the agricultural ecosystem of California and to their role in the 'pastoral' life that is still found in many parts of the state.
Alfalfa is considered the 'Queen of forages' and Sweet Clover is not far behind. They provide much of the cover crop and the bulk of the pasture in California for dairy cows and other livestock. They also are considered 'soil builders' and a source of open space for wildlife habitat. Most importantly for us, they provide small purple flowers from the alfalfa and white and yellow blossoms on the sweet clover that attract the miraculous honeybee to gather its nectar in the spring and summer months.
Our Tasting Notes: richly amber in color and beautifully balanced without any cloying qualities in the mouth feel. Really clean flavors with hints of cinnamon, vanilla, sweet spices and a touch of light maple. Frankly, it is just delicious!
All of our Branches honeys are gathered directly from the hives and bottled unpasteurized, thus maintaining the multitude of health benefits associated with honey that are often lost in traditional commercial honey from overheating to eliminate crystallization. Please note: crystallization is normal for unheated and unfiltered pure honey such as ours, but honey is good forever because its antibiotic properties keep it from spoiling.
