Pure raw honey with different flavors. Currently available: wild forest, buckwheat black walnut, acacia, and royal jelly. All of the selected honey is packed in 1kg jars except white honey with royal jelly, That is the only one packaged in 500g jars.
- No chemicals– When it’s time to extract the honey, rather than using chemicals to chase the bees out of the honey-filled frames, natural wood smoke is used to evacuate the bees out of the hives. Furthermore, Alexandre does not spray for mites. Instead, he first carefully and thoroughly cleans the hives. Then, sticky tape is placed at the bottom of the hives, and when the hives are ‘smoked out’, any present mites drop down and fall onto the sticky tape.
- No heat-treatment – No heat treatment is employed whatsoever. In many cases, organic honey which is deemed to be “unpasteurized”, still receives some degree of heat treatment. For example: conventionally, a heated knife is used to cut the honeycomb off the frame. Alexandre uses a clean, sharp knife that is not heated. Also, it is common practice to apply low heat at the final stages of the honey extraction, to remove any impurities. Alexandre, however, allows impurities to naturally rise to the surface; a traditional, low-tech way to filter the honey.
- Minimal Processing- To preserve the integrity of the honey, Alexandre chooses not to apply any unnatural force of speed in the honey extraction process. To extract honey from the comb, frames are inserted into a hand-driven centrifugal extractor.
- Care for the Bees- The beekeeping practices employed by Alexandre are done with careful consideration of the health and well-being of the bees. Without exception, the bees are never fed sugar water, and a sufficient supply of honey is left in the comb, for bee health and survival during winter.For more information about Alexandre and his honey, you can visit his website at www.honey4myhoney.com.
