Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best way to store your honey once the jar has been opened?
Raw honey can be kept at room temperature as refrigeration is not necessary. However, for thicker honey, refrigeration is recommended.
What is the shelf life of honey? Does it expire?
No, honey does not expire or spoil. It is highly resistant to bacteria, which allows it to last a very long time. When honey crystalizes, simply warm up the container for a few minutes in a pan of hot water.
Where does your honey come from?
All of our honey is produced locally right here on our farm in Central NY State. The floral sources of our hives are predominently wildflowers and clover.
Can raw honey be frozen?
Yes. It will remain liquid when it thaws out. To reliquify crystallized honey, heat it in a pan of warm water, or microwave it, (keep temperatures under 110 degrees).
What happens when honey crystalizes? Does that mean it's bad?
No. Honey does not go bad. Most honey will crystallize over time, meaning you can’t see through it anymore, and it becomes less liquid and more solid. This is a natural process for honey, and will happen sooner or later. Processed honey takes much longer to crystallize, because the pollen and flavor have been stripped out.
Where can I purchase your honey locally?
You can purchase our honey at ClearPath for Veterans in Chittenango, NY - (proceeds to benefit their Veterans Outreach Programs), Mother Earth's Health Foods in North Syracuse, NY, Williams Farm Stand in Cicero, NY, Thanos Import Market in Syracuse, NY, Off The Muck Market in Canastota, NY, or at the Farm Stand in Kirkville open 24/ hr. 7 days a week.
Do you place your hives at other locations?
Yes. We have hives located at Canastota Conservancy in Canastota, NY, Williams Farm in Cicero, NY, Kubecka Farms in Kirkville, NY, and ClearPath for Veterans in Chittenango, NY. If you're interested in our pollination services, get in touch. We will be happy to discuss.
What is the white substance on top of the honey?
This is due to tiny air bubbles trapped in the honey during processing and packaging. When the packaged honey rests, the air bubbles work their way up to the top of the container, creating the foam. There is nothing wrong with the honey or the foam.
