Sunset Valley Organics: Raspberry

$ 11.00

This honey varietal derived primarily from raspberry (rubus idaeus) nectar was harvested in late May at our Sunset Valley Organics apiary near Corvallis, OR. This honey is fairly mild in flavor with earthy notes and a clean citrus finish. It is available in 8-ounce (BPA-free) plastic squeeze bottles. The harvest date, apiary location, and primary nectar source(s) are written on the label. 

Sunset Valley Organics is a farm owned by Bob and Diane Wilt just south of Corvallis, OR. They are known primarily for their large blueberry acreage, but in the last few years, they have expanded into cane berries (raspberries, blackberries, black raspberries, etc.), aronia, and strawberries. The farm is certified organic, and they sell wholesale berries, U-pick and direct-market berries, and processed berry products like jams and dried fruit. 

Raspberries (Rubus idaeus) flower prolifically in May and fruit later in the summer. Oregon’s climate is particularly well suited for raspberry cultivation. Raspberry jam made with honey is also quite good. 

We never heat our honey over natural hive temperatures (under 100°), and we only filter it minimally, so it may include pollen, small wax particles, and the occasional bee bit. All natural honey will solidify eventually. To liquify, place the jar in a bowl of warm (not boiling) water. Our honeys are never flavored or infused with added ingredients. The varietal names indicate the primary nectar source plants the bees were foraging on at the time of surplus honey production. 

If you intend to buy this honey as a gift, please include a note for the recipient at checkout.
