Varietal Honey

Varietal honey is honey made predominantly from the nectar of a single type of flower. In order to capture and preserve the qualities and flavors unique to these monofloral honeys, beekeepers must consider local plant flowering pattersn when planning hive locations and the timing of each honey harvest. Unlike supermarket honeys, which are generally blended, ultrafiltered, and pasteurized to create a uniform product, each varietal honey possesses it own distinct flavor and color.
