Our Honey

Three times a year, our bees are moved to indulge in the nectar of a single type of flower blooming in a unique ecosystem on the remote Island of Hawaii.

The pristine and rare geography of the island provide a favorable environment for floral fidelity, which results in remarkably pure and intense flavors unique to Hawaii.

Bees burst forth from their hives to explore the new location after having been transported there at night under a tarp.

WE PACK ONLY THE HONEY FROM OUR HIVES

We are a family operation selling only the honey our bees produce. We do not sell honey from third party producers under our label and are therefore responsible both for the care of our bees and the methods by which we produce our honey.

Every jar is filled with pure, raw, unfiltered Hawaiian honey that comes straight from our hives on the Big Island of Hawaii.

ORGANICALLY PRODUCED, SLOW PACKED

We adhere to the principles of the slow food movement and believe that foods should be produced carefully and savored. But above all, we believe that nature’s purest foods are also the healthiest and most flavorful. Pesticide and herbicide residues in non-organic honey can taint the flavor and commercially processed methods of packing honey remove and destroy the pollen, enzymes and other compounds that give raw honey its taste and beneficial properties.

We produce all our honey artisanally and organically without the use of artificial feeds, chemical miticides, heat, or filtration and only use organic compounds to care for our bees.

Our ‘Ohi’a Lehua and Wilelaiki honey varietals are certified organic by the Internatoinal Certification Services, Inc.

ECO-FRIENDLY

We pack our honey in glass jars to preserve the flavor and integrity of the raw honey and then ship them to you with environmentally sensitive packaging, specifically engineered to fit snugly around each jar. Our customers are universally delighted that we put the same care and effort into packaging the honey as we do to produce it.

OUR VARIETALS

We produce three unique single-floral honey varietals. Each variety comes from a single source of nectar visited by the bees at various locations on the island at different times of year. The distinct properties of each flower are what gives each honey variety a unique flavor.
