ANGORA PREMIUM HONEY
Do This Honey
Angora Premium Alpine and Tamarack wildflower honey is 100% botanical. Great for lite wounds and burns. No blending and no migratory exposer. Limited quantities produced annually. Is their a difference? Yes their is and we are fortunate in the land of Angora Minnesota, which is in proximity of the Boundry waters Wilderness area. This area produces one of the worlds finest honey crops. A unique area in relation to the rest of country. This mineral rich area coupled with a low PH level, gives this diverse wildflower honey it's unique medicinal qualities.
The agricultural community produces timber and hay in this area. Amazing how close this land is to being organic. The natural uncontaminated forage provides remarkable benefits for honeybees. The farmers turn the fields every four years, and plant barley (1st year) and a grass seed/clover mix (remaining 3 years). Before they turn the ground, they throw manure on top for fertilizer, and turn it in during spring planting. Every eight years they apply wood ash to the ground to help the PH level. The countryside experiences virtually no herbicide, pesticide or nitrate application. It makes this source in Angora, an environment that produces vibrant, healthy honey bees, and a premium honey crop.
When processing, we slightly warm honey to 105° to maintain the integrity, and not to burn the properties in the honey. Through a series of strainers, which 200 is the smallest of strainers, it leaves small particles of propolis and pollen in the honey. Being prepared this way gives all the wholesomeness that God intended you to experience. With so many benefits that come from the consumption of honey, it may be worth considering implementing premium Angora honey into your daily diet.
In addition through management practices we enjoy the pleasure of a naturally occurring 16.5% moisture level on average at harvest. USDA requirement set moisture levels at 18.6% or lower to be considered grade A. Packing plants constantly use dehumidifiers to achieve the required moisture level for grade A certified honey. So many benefits are compromised with the current pasteurization of honey.

The United States imports 75% of the honey it consumes. A big issue in the honey industry is fake honey. It is no wonder the medicinal benefits that are supposed to be in honey have been compromised so badly. If you have time, Google it and become informed, or see the attached links we've provided in the blog. With these imports, a lot of countries have doubled the production without adding any bee colonies. Rice syrup, high fructose corn syrup or sugar syrup are blended with the honey. The altered honey compromises real value in quality, along with keeping a cap on price depending upon supply and demand. The beekeeper has two choices, produce for volume or quality. Good quality honey is not abundant. Most beekeepers have to produce volume in order to compete in the international markets. With these pressures being put on beekeepers, is it any wonder why there is significant losses in bee colonies every year?
If what you consume is important to you, may I suggest a proactive way to qualify a trustworthy honey product. First, know where the bees are foraging, because it does makes all the difference in the world. Secondly, qualify the management practices in how they're producing the product. A quality product requires specific care to maintain the integrity of the medicinal properties in the honey, if it has it. In today's market the majority of the honey product is compromised through pasteurization and irresponsible management practices.
Beekeeping has challenges for us in this country. The majority of the nectar flow happens over a 14 to 21 day period and can be tepid at best. Winters are challenging, but the crop is well worth all the effort. There is none other like it in the world. We do not transport our bees to the southern climates, they stay right here all winter. This practice keeps the integrity of the honeybees intact, along with reducing any cross-contamination or disease from other bees. This management practice is to help ensure the brilliance of what these creatures can do. We are excited that you had an opportunity to visit the site, and we know you will be happy with the benefits received when pure honey is implement it into your diet. Cheers!!!
