Honey is a magical thing, it’s the only food product that will never spoil. And in the past few years we’ve heard that the more local the honey the better it is for our health. Not everyone can have their own bee hive in their back yard – some of us are extra lucky and can, but where do do you find local honey if you can’t?
Focusing on local varieties of honey Rice Honey has come out with their a Local Hive honey that is sourced from small apiaries around the country and made into different regional honeys. It’s one of the closest things to having a bee hive in your own yard. Each bottle will tell you the region the honey is from and on the back a map shows you the states the honey was sourced from. Every region provides a different flavor profile and the opportunity to try different honey from around the country with a quick stop at the grocery store.
Raw, unfiltered honey also offers many health benefits including being rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and pollen. Unlike processed unnatural sugars or sweeteners, Local Hive™ honey offers transparency, as each natural varietal is made so local it’s “made right in your own back yard”.
There are 16 different local varietals of raw honey honey including Local New England, Local Northeast, Local Florida, Authentic Clover & Authentic Wildflower. Very similar to wine, where you taste and see the difference between varietals, Local Hive™ from Rice’s Honey® also imparts specific flavors in each of the honeys they produce. From Washington to Florida each varietal is unique.
