About Our Honey

Here at Backyard Bee’s, we hand process our honey comb from uncapping to bottling. All our honey is gravity strained and unheated, which preserves the honey’s natural aroma, nutritional value, and fine taste. The result is pure 100% natural honey for you to enjoy.

How is honey made?

Bees use the very flowers in your backyard to produce their honey. Worker bees carry sweet nectar in their honey stomachs back to the hive to be put in the comb. During this time, enzymes in the bee’s stomach are transforming nectar into honey. Once in the hive, the honey is dehydrated to about 17% water and is then capped with pure beeswax to be later used as food.
