Honey's Many Wonders

Oh, honey! There are so many reasons to love it! Honey is a natural topical antibiotic, a cough suppressant and is good for your skin. It's also a natural sweetener that can boost energy.

Natural honey is hard to come by these days. It's true that what you find in the grocery store may not be everything you hoped it would be. Often times the pollen is completely filtered out. Bee pollen is full of protein, vitamins, minerals, lipids, and carbohydrates. The pollen from flowers is packaged by the honeybees with nectar and enzymes, which then turns it into a super-food.

I spent months traveling through Washington and Oregon to find the perfect honey. I wanted something wholesome and different. Aside from selecting honey that is truly delicious, it’s also raw (no pollen filtering!), unheated, Kosher and gluten-free.

Farm Belle honey comes in clover, lemon, raspberry and blackberry. For Fall, I’ve added lavender and pineapple-lemon pepper honeys. They all pair so beautifully with teas, toasts and other wholesome snacks.

So, indulge in something sweet and feel good about it!
