Product of the USA

No pesticides or herbicides are used in our apiaries and although we do not call it organic, our honey buckwheat honey is about as organic as you can get from The United States: Read more here Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

From about July through thru October, we place hives in buckwheat fields on both slopes and the surrounding area of the Central Mohawk Valley and Finger Lakes region of New York.

Raw Buckwheat Honey

Raw Buckwheat Honey - 1lb Glass Jar....Out of Stock

Raw buckwheat honey has a deep, dark brown color, strong, pungent, molasses like earthy flavor and is high in mineral content and antioxidant compounds. The benefits of buckwheat honey are many and well known; however, if you are planning to buy buckwheat honey for its health-benefits, it must be raw. Heating honey (pasteurization) destroys the all of the pollen, enzymes, propolis, vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants, minerals, and aromatics. Honey that has been heated and filtered is called liquid, regular or commercial honey.

"But if raw honey is so good for you, and heating it kills all the good stuff, why heat it?"

The reason is that the majority of Americans prefer the convenience of being able to spoon, pour or squeeze honey from a bottle onto their cereal or into their tea.

In addition, liquid or regular honey is clearer, easier to measure or spread than raw honey and many people think that honey that has crystallized is spoiled so they discard it. Honey that has been heated and filtered will not crystallize as fast as raw honey.

Although we specialize in raw buckwheat honey, we also offer regular buckwheat honey for those who prefer it.

Buckwheat

Buckwheat is neither a grass nor wheat, but is a fruit related to rhubarb and is one of the first crops cultivated in the United States. Dutch colonists brought buckwheat to North America where they planted it along the Hudson River. Buckwheat was sometimes called beechwheat, because its seeds look like small beech nuts. Buckwheat was an important crop in the U.S. until the demand declined in the 1960's. Today, it is primarily grown in Northern states such as New York, which is where our buckwheat apiaries are located.

Buckwheat seeds are also used or making gluten free flour and buckwheat blossoms are an excellent source of nectar and blooming can continue well into the autumn.

Buckwheat hulls are used as filling for pillows and zafu. The hulls are durable and do not conduct or reflect heat as much as synthetic fills and they are an excellent substitute to feathers for people with allergies. However, buckwheat hull pillows made with uncleaned and unprocessed hulls contain high levels of allergens that may trigger an asthma attack in those who are at risk.
