We're not ashamed to say it - the golden star thistle is a weed! Native to Eurasia, it first sprang up in California alfalfa crops with its bright yellow flower and spiny stem and leaves in the mid-19th century. Though it may have been seen as a pesky intruder by some farmers, Nature looks after the honeybees and they simply love gathering from the star thistle blossom.
Our raw star thistle honey is a great treat on French toast, in fruit salads and baked goods. Its gourmet quality makes it a truly fine gift and a nice way to share the taste of the Northern California with your loved ones. Bear Foot Honey Farm's artisan honeys are harvested in small batches. To retain the real, natural integrity of our honey, we do not heat-treat or filter our honeys. The result is a superior product that offers maximum taste and the maximum health benefits of raw honey packed with natural enzymes.
Our honeys are never thinned out with corn syrup or flavorings. With Bear Foot Honey Farm, you know you are getting the pure goodness of the hive, just as heaven intended it.
The dictionary definition of raw honey is honey as it exists in the beehive or as obtained by extraction, settling or straining without adding heat. Heat is used to pasteurize commercial honey, but natural raw honey is the specialty of smaller gourmet apiaries like ours.
One very important thing to note about honey, however, is that it should never be fed to infants under 1 year old. This applies to all honeys the infant may not capable of handling some of the properties of honey.
