Honey

Our honey is raw and straight from the hive.

There is nothing in the bottle that the bees didn’t put there.

Our honey is never cooked, cut or processed.  During the extraction and bottling process, we warm the honey to approximately the same temperature that the bees naturally keep the hive.

We truly believe in the goodness of nature’s perfect sweetener.  It is full of enzymes, amino acids and trace elements that are essential for healthy living.

BUT honey should not be given to infants under the age of 12 months.

When crystallization occurs, place jar in water and warm gently. Do not microwave.

For a complete list of retailors please see our “Sales” page.

Look for our label to be sure that you are getting RAW LOCAL HONEY.

    I just purchased a jar from PCC Greenlake in Seattle. While I limit use of any sweetener I’ve had a driven desire for honey the last few weeks and finally decided to indulge. As someone who’s spent over a quarter century eating organic and fresh, I can tell when a food is “alive.” Wow, your honey was so alive it made ME buzz! I had to have a second english muffin with honey this morning to savor the deep rich flavor. Thank you for making it and getting it out here to Seattle.

    I’m interested in your honey because I’ve heard it can help with seasonal allergies if you eat local honey. We are on n wenas is selah. Would your honey be “local” enough? Where exactly are you located?

    A MI ME GUSTA MUCHO TOMAR TE CON MIEL ! I’m in Dallas and when I go out town I look for side of the road stands that sell.honey. Two years ago we drove to the pasific northwest and I bought a bottle of your honey. Just want you to know that so far is the most delicious I have ever tasted
    Look forward to procure another jar soon. Thanks .

    I bought a jar of your honey while driving thru White Pass. That day it was 102 degrees in Packwood. When we got home my pretty golden colored honey was almost black. I’m guessing it was from the heat and am wondering if the honey is still safe for us to eat. Please email me to let me know. I tasted it and it tasted just a touch like molasses. Great flavor, but is it still safe to eat?

      Yes, the honey is fine to eat. If it was exposed to heat above 120 degrees it may have lost some of its “raw” benefits, but it should still be perfectly fine and YUMMY. Thanks for the purchase and the question 🙂

    Just purchased a jar of honey from PCC in Issaquah, WA. All of the honey on the shelf was golden colored except the one I picked out. It is very dark and was the only one like it. None of the others were crystalized. Is this one dark because of the type of flower or…? What kind of honey is it?

    • craichoneyco says:

      Ja,
      Thank you for giving our honey a try! Our honey is, historically, darker than most of what you will find on the shelf.

      Our bees are exposed to a variety of nectar sources and some of them, like mint and buckwheat produce a darker, more robust honey.

      Also, it should be noted that, because of this variety and the fact that we don’t homogenize our honey in a huge vat, there will be variation between barrels.

      All of that to say, YES, our honey is darker than most and we really hope you enjoy it!

    I just purchased a jar of your raw honey. Wow. So tasty and by far easier to dispense . No sticky mess. I love it. Have struggled with the bottled stuff. I use it daily with my vinegar and cinnamon tonic . You have a winning product. Just so perfect. Thank you for bringing such a great product to our shelves in Yakima,Wa.

    I purchased your honey a week ago in our Safeway (Mountlake Terrace, WA). It was the last jar on the shelf. I really do like the product. I think it is the best honey I’ve ever ate in the USA.
    The one thing that I would change is your web site address on the jar’s sticker, which is wrong (craichoneyco.com). Also, it would be nice to have some info about what kind of honey in the jar (almond trees honey, buckwheat honey, etc), of course if it’s possible.
    Thank you for your hard work. Best of luck!

      I am so glad that you are enjoying our honey! Yes, our website was hijacked and our .com became a .co, such a pain. Apparently you got a jar with an old label, sorry for the inconvenience! I dont make any varietal claims about our honey because it is such a variety of things that the bees get into. The dominant nectar source is mint, but there is also every weed and tree that blooms along the rivers here in the Yakima valley, that add to the mix. We have locations for the bees to forage from White Pass, WA to Granger, WA. Our label could get a little ridiculous 😉 Again, thank you for your patronage and I would love to hear about your favorite use for honey!!!❤🐝❤

    Thank you for your kind reply and for the provided information.

    There is my favorite use for honey: Lemon-ginger honey paste.
    1 big lemon
    200-220 grams of ginger
    150 grams of honey
    Cut lemon (do not peel) and ginger by pieces. Put them to your blender. Add a honey. Blend it till it looks like a paste. Keep it in a jar refrigerated.
    Use: Add 1 teaspoon to your tea (not super hot) or water 1-3 times a day.

    Benefits of lemon, ginger and honey tea:
    – Soothes and relieves cold and flu symptoms
    – Helps with digestives issues (and keeps metabolism fired up)
    – Strengthens immune system
    – Detoxifies

    Best regards!
