This honey comes directly from my own apiary, Cool Hollow Hives, located on the backside of Furnace Mountain in the Lovettsville/Leesburg/Waterford/Lucketts nook. There are over 750 species of vascular plants including 60 species of trees to forgage in the wild on. Additionally, there are many agrucltural business, such as wineries and breweries practicing biodiversity with agroecostystems utilizing covercrops to manage soil eroision, soil fertiity, and to increase the nitrogen levels in their soil. We also have many flower and vegetable farms nearby, all of this offers plenty of diverse forage for honey bees in this area, making for some very unique honey flavors.
Many people don't realize that there are more things that can influence the flavor, color, and texture of honey, probable more so that any other artisan food, wine included! This honey is my late summer harvested Autumn honey. I am a small batch artisan honey producer practicing biodynamic and regenerative beekeeping who ethically and sustainably harvests honey from my own hives, only taking surplus and never from honey bee colonies less that 2 years old or weak struggling colonies.

I choose to jar all my honey and hive products in glass because glass offers a far more sustainable packaging option and is 100% recyclable, resuasble, and sustainable. I use the best glass product I can while still being able to keep my price points reasonable for customers.
For each jar returned (big or small), you will receive $1 off your next Apiary Artist "Products from the Hive" purchase. I do not need the lids back, just the jars. Don't even worry about peeling the labels off, I got that covered!
