Earlier this year, we started our own bee hive. Not only does it mean we have a beautiful garden this year, and a ton of different fruits and vegetables, but eventually we will get our own honey. This year, the weather has been a little hard on hives, and I’ll be doing an update on what’s happening in ours soon – but our love and need of honey in the house hasn’t decreased even though we wont get our own this year. They always say the best honey for your to use is one that is locally sourced, but not everyone knows a beekeeper. If you want more than the processed honey (that may or may not be real honey) from the store, you can always check out Nature Nate’s honey and honey syrup. They sent me some of their Raw and Unfiltered Honey to check out, and try as we wait to see if our hive actually provides us honey this next year.
Raw honey is straight from the hive, it is only heated to 120 degrees so it is not pasteurized and unfiltered. Nature Nate’s Raw & Unfiltered Honey is closest to its original form from the hive. Unlike pasteurized honey which is heated to a very high temperature, Nature Nate’s Honey is treated with very low heat, keeping all important enzymes intact. It’s also unfiltered, which means it still contains pollen and retains the best flavor, aroma and nutrition naturally. There are no additives, and no junk inside any of the honey and each bottle comes in a decorative tin that can be used as gift wrapping without any extra paper required. Nature Nate’s also only used American bee’s – so native bees that are use to the environment, the plants and weather patterns. Unlike imported bees, who may not make it through the year, native bees have a better chance and are a natural part of the ecosystem.
I haven’t found Nature Nate’s honey at home near me, but you can use their store locator to see if you can find it near you. If you want pure honey and can’t find it in a store near you, you can find Nature Nate’s on Amazon. This is the perfect gift for foodies, honey lovers and people who love healthy food options!
