This honey varietal derived primarily from wild blackberry (Rubus bifrons and Rubus vestitus) nectar was harvested in late July in the Oregon Coast Range near Eddyville. It has a floral flavor with notes of quince and a clean 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.
Our Eddyville apiary is located on the Yaquina River in “downtown” Eddyville, OR about 20 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. Springtime here brings cooler temperatures than the Willamette Valley, so maples and other plant species bloom a little later. Bee colonies are usually able to bring in pollen and cure some surplus honey even under less-than-ideal spring foraging conditions. The property is owned by the Eddyville Charter School, and the school’s biology teacher invited us to locate hives here in order to ensure good pollination of the apple trees in the Morris X. Smith memorial orchard.
We never heat our honey over natural hive temperatures, 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.
