Our Own Pure Raw Honey – Treatment Free!
by Anita Deeley at BeverlyBees.com
All of our honey is Pure, Raw, Unheated, Unfiltered – just the way nature intended. Since it is unfiltered, it retains all the pollen, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and beneficial enzymes. Since it is never heated, all its natural enzymes remain intact. Heating honey over a certain amount will kill its healthy enzymes.
Never Heated ~Unfiltered ~ 100% Pure Raw Honey
From Bees in Beverly, MA
Our raw honey is treatment free which is hard to find locally. Treatment free means that treatments are not used inside the hive. No pesticides, chemicals, essential oils or antibiotics are used inside the hive at any time.
Our honey is truly local and only available in limited amounts. The bees remain stationary and forage only on the flowers within 5 miles of their hive. Once cured, this honey is harvested in micro batches and hand extracted to retain the flavors of the flowers in the area and the season in which it is harvested. If the honey was gathered from flowers in Beverly, it will be harvested and labeled as such. If it is flowers from Salem, it will be harvested separately from Beverly and labeled this way. Since good honey is like fine wine, micro batch honey allows you to taste the different flavors of honey from different floral sources. If you are looking for local honey this helps you find the batch that is closest to you.
I let the bees eat their honey first. This means honey is sold only after the bees have enough to eat for themselves. What I sell is truly excess honey. I do not remove honey to feed bees sugar instead. Occasionally, I will feed struggling hives sugar if they are starving, can’t forage enough for themselves, and I do not have any honey to feed them.
Our raw chunk honey is made with wax 100% made by bees without giving them any wax foundation to start out. This is the cleanest beeswax you can get.
You can buy our honey at the Beverly Farmer’s Market, Mondays 3-7 pm at the Beverly Depot, from June until October. The market is located at Veterans Memorial Park, Rantoul St and Railroad Ave, Beverly, MA. Or you can email Anita at firstname.lastname@example.org for local pickup from our house in Beverly.
