BUCKWHEAT HONEY IS DARK IN COLOUR, AND FEATURES A STRONG MALTY, MOLASSES FLAVOUR. GREAT FOR BAKING, GLAZING ON MEATS, IN STEW, OR PERFECT IN COFFEE.

FACT: HONEYBEES TEND TO PREFER OTHER FLORAL CROP OVER BUCKWHEAT. WE ARE REQUIRED TO GROW 20-40 ACRES IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO THE COLONIES TO OBTAIN THIS FLAVOUR AS DARK AND RICH AS WE DO. BUCKWHEAT IS TRADITIONALLY USED AS A COVER CROP/GREEN MANURE AND IS TILLED UNDER THE SOIL BEFORE IT FLOWERS. WE ARE REQUIRED TO PARTNER WITH FARMERS WHO ALLOW THE CROP TO FLOWER TO CAPTURE THIS NECTAR SOURCE. 

PREDICTED FLORAL SOURCE: BUCKWHEAT.

OUR GUARANTEE: THIS HONEY IS 100% LOCAL AND UNPASTEURIZED.
