As you have no doubt heard, raw honey offers an extensive range of surprising benefits. This rich golden liquid is the miraculous product of honey bees and a naturally delicious alternative to refined white sugar. Honey was around long before sugar became widely available in the 16th century and, unlike sugar, raw honey can offer incredible benefits to our health and well-being.
One of our favorites is from family-owned and operated Honey Creek Bee Farm in Conyers, which maintains 75 honey bee colonies throughout Georgia. The Bigham beekeeping tradition dates back more than a hundred years to Roland Bigham, and the experience and guidance gained from past generations is the true heritage of the company.
Wildflower – Also known as “multifloral” or “mixed floral”, Wildflower is often used to describe honey varieties from miscellaneous and undefined nectar sources very near the hive location. Its color can vary from very light to dark and flavor range from light and fruity to tangy and rich, depending on the mix from the different seasonal wildflowers. This honey is most effective for the treatment of allergies.
Orange Blossom – Orange blossom honey, often a combination of citrus sources, is usually light in color and mild in flavor with a fresh fruity scent, and a fragrant citrus taste.
Sourwood – Unlike its name, Sourwood honey is as sweet as can be. The nectar is collected from the sourwood trees in the north Georgia mountains. This light-colored, delicate, subtle honey has an almost caramel or buttery flavor, and a pleasant, lingering aftertaste. Sourwood honey from Clarksville Georgia won Best in Show at the World Honey Competition in Paris France in 1996. This is truly a Premium honey.
Tupelo – Clear yellow with a greenish tint, Tupelo honey is a premium honey produced in northwest Florida and southern Georgia from the Tupelo trees growing in swamps. Tupelo has a sweet and very distinctive flavor. Because of the high fructose content, Tupelo honey is one of the sweetest honey varieties.
Most of the honey consumed today is processed honey that’s been heated and filtered since it was gathered from the hive. Unlike processed honey, raw honey does not get robbed of its nutritional value and health powers. It can help with everything from low energy to seasonal allergies.
