Cog Hill Farm Honey
The Cog Hill Bee Team
Cog Hill Honey is collected from the hives here at our farm and others placed throughout the surrounding community. We need a lot of hives to have enough honey to reach all of you! This is only possible through the dedication of the father-daughter team at Southern Bee Biz, who manage our hives, harvests and packaging.
Does honey go bad?
No, even opened honey doesn't expire. Per U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines, honey will remain safe to eat even after the quality of the honey declines.
What to do if your honey crystalizes.
Have no fear, your honey can be warmed and will go back to it's liquid form. Crystalization is normal!
Place crystallized honey in a warm water bath of about 100 degrees for 15 minutes or more until the crystals dissolve and the honey liquefies.
Why is my honey darker/lighter?
Honey gets its color from the pollen that a hive gathers to make it. Because plants blossom at different times of year and bees collect honey nearly year-round, a single hive can produce radically different colors of honey from season to season. Spring honey is typically lighter than Fall collected honey.
