Our honey is Treatment Free! That means I do not directly apply any pesticides, fungicides or medicines to the hive. We cannot control where the bees go or what they get into, but we can control what we directly subject them to in the hive. Detail below, or head on over to the Market to get yours today!
Our honey is collected from southeast Texas Piney Woods and Houston area. It is dominated by Chinese Tallow tree but contains traces of local flora from around the year. I only feed my colonies sugar water if the alternative is that the colony will starve to death. Likewise, I'm not harvesting honey from those colonies, so no worries of adulterated “sugar-water” honey. The honey is RAW, UNFILTERED, and UNHEATED. Our honey is run straight out of the extractor and into the bottling bucket. It passes through a 200 micron sieve to pull out wax bits, but no micro press filtering. I do not heat it to pasteurize or assist in bottling.
ALL HONEY WILL AND SHOULD EVENTUALLY CRYSTALLIZE. SIMPLY APPLY GENTLE HEAT (not a microwave) AND STIR TO RETURN THE HONEY TO LIQUID.
Liquid Honey - Honey is bottled in glass Mason jars. Each jar's respective net weight is correlated to the volume and the average density of honey being 12 pounds per gallon.
Half Pint = 3/4 lb - $10
Pint = 1.5 lbs - $15 (Twice the volume for 50% more price over the HP. )
Quart = 3 lbs - $25
Gallon = 12 lbs - $90 - Gallons are sold as 4 quart jars but the price break by volume still applies
Comb Honey Submerged in Honey - CURRENTLY SOLD OUT - I cut a chunk of comb honey as big as I can to fit in the jar then top the jar off with liquid honey.
Half Pint - $10
Pint - $15
Quart - $25
Random Chunk Comb Honey - I have random size chunks of comb honey. This can be cut to a specific weight or random, and is sold by the net weight. Comb honey is best consumed (in my opinion) by taking a spoon full of honey and comb and eating it all at once. Work the honey out, and then the beeswax can be chewed like gum for some time thereafter. The wax can be swallowed with no hard to your system. Or spit it in the trash. Or keep it and melt it down (though you'll have to eat a lot of honey to make a candle!)
$0.75/ounce - 16 oz/lb equates to $12/lb.
Hogg Half Combs - CURRENTLY SOLD OUT
Hogg Half Combs are praised for the fact that it is the purest honey you can acquire. Untouched by human hands, the bees build the honeycomb directly into the container.
Each half comb section is $10 regardless of net weight. They should all be ~3/4 lb.
Chemical Free Beeswax - I do not use any chemicals on any of my beehives, so the wax is the purest you can get. I render it several times to filter out any solid impurities. Color ranges from near white to dark yellow.
Beeswax is $20/lb.
