This is pure local honey from our apiaries (beehives) located in Wales and Oconomowoc Wisconsin. The farms where T-Bee-R’s bees are located were selected because they are sites which have the perfect blend of nectar sources to make this outstanding artisan honey. T-Bee-R’s Bees primary sources of nectar are native wildflowers, fruit trees, and clover. And of course, no out-of-state or imported honey has been added or blended into our honey.
Our natural honey is raw and unfiltered and thus retains all the valuable pollen and potent antioxidents which are important in health. This artisan honey is unheated so it retains all the natural and healthy enzymes found in honey which breakdown with heating.
