Fine textured crystals are characteristic of totally pure, unheated, unprocessed, raw honey. Properly crystallized honey has a fine , smooth, texture. Crystallized honey preserves natural goodness and doesn’t drip. The more rapidly honey crystallizes the fine the texture will be.
Raw honey has been noted for its ability to heal wounds and treat infections. It is also known for its antioxidant, antibiotic and antiviral capabilities. In general, honey is 18-20% water and is comprised of the monosaccharide glucose and fructose; vitamins A, B-complex, C, D, E, K, and beta-carotene, as well as minerals and enzymes. Raw, unprocessed honey has the most medicinal and nutritional value.
Honey that has heat-treated darkens with age and heat, loses some of its delicate aromas and heat sensitive enzymes. Vitamins, and yeast, and sometimes separates.

HOW CAN SOMEONE SAY ITS ORGANIC WHEN BEES CAN TRAVEL WHEREVER THEY WANT?
First, in order to be truly organic, the beehives must be placed in isolated areas miles from the dense population, industry, traffic congestion, farm fields, treated with chemicals and landfills. Second, bees flying range is determined by their natural instinct that tells to stay within their natural four mile range from the hive location. When they fly out of this range all sense of direction is lost.
WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR CERTIFIED ORGANIC HONEY?
As beekeepers, finding pollution free and fresh areas clear from herbicides, pesticides, and chemical fertilizers to place beehives in extremely difficult and not available in most areas of North America. Isolated areas in the northwestern corner of North Dakota and Upper Frontier of Canada are to date the only ranges of certifiable land. These regions are the richest source of vegetation for the healthiest, purest, safest, hone production.
Why is your honey a light color and more solidified than other raw honey?
Where and what type of honey plants bees forage on will determine honey color, level of nutrients, fragrance and taste. Extreme cold region honey is lighter in color than tropical honey. Such wild honey plants as acacia, alfalfa, basswood, and sweet clover produce an almost colorless honey (known as water color) which when crystallized turns almost white. The strength of crystallization (hardness) determines the level of live state nutrients and heat sensitive enzymes. A powerful natural occurring energy stored in the extreme cold region allows this honey to crystallize within a three weeks maximum period upon extraction. The harder the honey the better. Tropical honey will never be bale to match the nutrients and strength stored in this solidified honey.
