Honey has been found in the burial tombs in Egypt, still edible, most likely a little chunky. As the last of the precious honey buckets are opened, the natural process of raw honey is revealed. If honey has not been heat treated, it will crystalize and solidify. In some honeybee circles this is known as creamed honey. More often than not, the creamed honey you see on the store shelves has been man made through a process of introducing a bit of pure creamed honey crystals to flowing honey and stirring until all of the honey is light, creamy, and thick, speeding up the process. Very few things that you put in your mouth will elicit the sensations that you will experience when you wrap your lips around a spoonful of natures perfect food. A little heated water in a pan on the stovetop will return it to its original flowing form, but why bother when it can be spread on toast, bagels, spooned in tea, or just scooped out of the tub and eaten as is. AS OF APRIL 5, NEW MARKET HOURS: Friday and Saturday from noon until 4:00 PM. No goat milk as of yet, the strawberries are blooming, the next couple of weeks will be spent planting transplants in the fields, and planting more seed trays for replacements as those are harvested.  From our farmstead to your table, thank you for all of your support!!!
