This comb honey is cut directly from the frame on which bees constructed the hexagonal comb out of beeswax, without manipulation of any kind. The beeswax lends a creaminess to the honey as it's spread on bread, and the intricate comb provides a striking focal point to a classy cheese plate.

Description

This is honey's most natural form. Before the invention of honey extractors, all honey was eaten with the comb. But this preparation of honey declined in popularity, in part because reusing comb structures makes for more efficient honey production.

About The Producer Arrow down

Ames Farms

Ames Farm is a virtual farm with five orchards and 300 hives in 18 bee locations spread out over a large area of central and southern Minnesota. They produce several varieties of raw, single source honey (honey produced from the nectar of primarily one type of plant).

Brian Fredrickson takes a very particular approach to honey production that is rare in the U.S. (though more prevalent in Europe) in that he tracks the blooming plants carefully and removes frames from his hives as each blooming is complete. This allows him to clearly identify the nectar source for each honey down to the specific hive it was harvested from. Each season, he can produce up to fifteen varietal honeys.
