We have our own apiaries on site!
With many of our products offering honey and wax as ingredients, we are able to provide these ingredients directly onsite through our own hives. So with that said, we are proud to offer the actual raw honey as well!
Our honey bees bring us several types of honey throughout the year. Our all natural farm offers pollen and nectar from saw palmetto, wild blueberries, wild blackberries, golden rain tree, golden rod, gallberry, elderberry, wild guava, wild flowers and more.
As the season and bloom changes, so does the type of honey offered by the bees. So each jar of honey ordered will be a different type, depending on the season. All of the honey is delicious and you will certainly taste the quality. The honey is never heated and it is lightly strained to remove large impurities such as pieces of bark or plants that the bees sometimes incorporate into the hive. The honey does naturally have small particles such as pollen, sometimes a little wax and propolis but this is very much sought after for its health benefits.
We never feed our bees sugar water as most beekeepers do and we do not use chemicals to extract the honey from the hives. We always leave enough honey behind for the bees to survive on and if the bees have a shortage, we always have honey put aside to feed back to them.
Our raw honey comes in a glass ball jar and never plastic. The honey comes straight from the hive to your house and you will not be disappointed.
Don't forget! When you are done with your jar of honey, there is still a lot of honey clinging to the sides. Fill the jar with spring water and give it a good shake! Honey water is super nutritional and hydrating! Toss in a slice of lemon and place in the fridge to chill a bit.....Delish!
As of December 9th, 2018, we have Brazilian Pepper honey available.
When it comes to anything we consume, quality and purity of product is extremely important. I don't live in Florida, but I have bought this honey because of the high standards that are placed upon bee care, hive maintenance, and the purity of the product. This is good for the body and tastes so much better than any store bought honey.
Some damn good honey!!
I only purchase honey from Oakwood Natural Living. I follow a vegan diet and consuming honey is technically not part of it. But for me what matters is the source of the honey. Not only is the product delicious and excellent, but the pride that they take in the art of bee keeping is honorable. Their bees are not harmed during extraction, and that for me says it all. They are in fact helping the bee populi stay afloat by giving these bees safe environments to thrive and reproduce in.
I love the honey I get from Oakwood Natural Living. I was never a huge honey fan...This honey has flavor, smoothness and blend ability and is fantastic! Moving up to the next size jar on next order! Can’t get enough.
I love local honey and I'm super happy I found Oakwood. Their honey is delicious, cannot wait to try more flavors.
