Raw honey varies widely in color, flavor, texture and scent. Santa clara is a valley of microclimates, and the honey flavors reflect the primary sources of nectar in the immediate area.
neighborhood nectar comes from bees which have been relocated from the walls, soffets, garden sheds, stucco walls etc of homes all over santa clara county. To retain the varietal flavors, combs are extracted separately to prevent the aromatics of honeys from herbs like lavender and dill from being swamped by the intensity of fruit blossoms and garden flowers.
each jar is identified by both the community where the bees were located and by color. The selection is varied, so if a particular community or color is preferred please note that in your "email us" request.
