By: Greg BrianAt Artie’s Harvest, we care about our bees. We make sure our honey is always raw, preserving all its essential nutrients. Our honey is not ultrafiltered, like most honey on the market - instead we keep in all the pollen, propolis and other goodies from the hive. Every jar was produced by our cooperative of PNW local beekeepers, and we never blend it with honey from outside our region. Of course, we never mix our honey with corn syrup or other adulturants, the way many large-scale honey producers do. We give our bees the freedom to decide which flowers they want to forage on - we avoid keeping our bees in monoculture crops where hives can be subject to spray from herbicides, pesticides and chemical fertilizers.
