This honey varietal derived primarily from arugula (Eruca sativa) nectar was harvested in late June at our Riverside apiary near Albany, Oregon. 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.
Our Riverside apiary is located on Stellmacher Farm along the Willamette River. Bill Stellmacher grows grass seed, vegetable seed, and hazelnuts in the area but has been phasing out grass seed and planting more acreage of hazelnuts in the last few years with arugula and other vegetable seed often being a transitional crop.
Arugula (Eruca sativa) is a popular spicy salad green. This open-pollinated arugula crop was grown for Universal Seed and will be distributed widely across the country. Brassicas in general are good nectar source plants for honeybees, and this year, we got quite a good honey yield from the field.
This honey has a dark chocolate and tart, dried fig flavor.
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.
