Q: What is spun honey?
A: Spun honey, sometimes called creamed honey or honey butter, is honey that has been micro crystalized. Honey naturally forms crystals as it ages. Spun honey is made by taking crushed honey crystals and stirring them into liquid honey. This causes a thickening, and the end result is honey with the consistency of soft butter that is much less likely to form large, hard crystals. Our spun honey is the very same raw, unfiltered honey as our liquid flower farm honey, just with a different texture.
Q: Are your products organic?
A: While our farm is not certified organic (yet), we do use only organic growing methods. We do not use any herbicides, pesticides, or conventional fertilizer. Our flowers are planted in organic compost and are feed compost tea every 7-10 days which provides valuable nutrients and temporarily repels insects that feed on the green parts. We operate this way because we believe it fosters healthier honey bee colonies and a healthier environment for everyone else, too.
Our laying hens are fed certified organic feed; however, they are quite spoiled and do on occasion receive scraps of fruits and vegetables from our home which may or may not be organic.
Q: Do you offer flowers/floral arrangements for weddings?
A: At this time we do not offer floral arrangements for weddings. We are willing to offer buckets of Do-It-Yourself flowers and greenery depending on availability. If you are interested in this option, please contact us for pricing and availability.
