Meet the Farmers
Operating in and around Alamance County, NC.
- Phoenix Farm -
Jackson and Anna Holt are passionate about raising wholesome, delicious fruits and vegetables for their family and local community on their small, one-and-a-third acre farm.
- Mike's Local Honey and Produce -
All honey, from different areas and times of year, will taste differently. Our honey is a wildflower honey that is comprised mostly of Tulip Poplar nectar, with some blackberry and other flower nectar mixed in. The Tulip Poplar nectar provides a slight redish tint to the honey, while keeping it very sweet, not overly light in flavor, but not overpowering either. It's a very sweet honey, and great for teas, cooking, or just taking a spoonful every now and then.
Our honey is never pasteurized or high-pressure filtered so it keeps all the trace vitamins, minerals, enzymes, flavors and aromas of fresh honey, straight from the hive.
We maintain a small, family owned and operated farm that is committed to doing what's best for the bees, keeping healthy, strong colonies. I put alot of work into producing this honey, and I know you will love it!
All raw, unfiltered honey will granulate in time. This will happen with all natural honey and doesn't mean the honey has "gone bad" (honey will never spoil unless it gets exposed to water). Simply heat the container in a hot pot of water to re-liquefy. We recommend not heating it over 100 degrees to prevent the loss of flavor, enzymes, and nutritional benefits. But heating it up to 150 degrees for a short period of time will re-liquefy granulated honey faster.
This honey has been processed by one person: me, the beekeeper. No packagers, producers, middlemen, or other people handling your honey. I prepare the bees, put the supers on, take the supers off, extract the honey from the comb, put it into the bottle and ship it to you. That simple! Just as it should be.
I'm passionate about my bees and my honey, so if you see or think of something you would like let me know. I love to talk bees!
