But more fun - visit the farm, bring your own container and fill it from our tap so you can get the best price.  Or use one of our empty bottles.  You need to check out the Honey Shack - all sizes available, honey dippers, pollen, Amish jams and jellies, salsas, handmade soaps and much more.

 

A little about our honey, just so you know what you are getting.  We have hives of bees on the farm who's most important job is pollination of all the fruit plants.  But in the process, they produce a pretty great by-product - honey.  To some, honey is honey, like to some, coffee is coffee, beer is beer etc.  But to those that do enjoy honey and appreciate the wide ranges of honey flavors available, here is a little information you might enjoy knowing.

Happy Valley Farm honey is light - sometimes a little lighter, or a little darker, depending on the time of year and what's blooming.  Because of the high number of fruit blooms these bees visit, it gives our honey a unique flavor that's not like regular clover honey.  No, it doesn't taste like blueberries.  :)

We don't claim to be organic because we don't know where every bee goes.  Bees travel in a 4-10 mile radius of their hive.  That's a 20 mile diameter.  Here's the math: area = Pi x (r x r).  That means one hive covers potentially any flower in a 314 square mile area.  So unless your hives are in a bio-dome, you just don't know for sure.

The honey is harvested from the hives, put in an extractor, warmed slightly to make handling easier and filtered to remove any solids (wax, comb bits, etc) - not micro filtered - and then bottled.  All of which occurs in a commercial kitchen.

This is pure, raw honey, not pasteurized or processed, just taken from the hive, filtered and put into a bottle.  It retains all of the allergy fighting pollen so that anyone between the Rockies and Appalachians  can benefit from our honey - but the closer to De Soto, KS, the better. It also means that if you don't use it quickly enough, or if you store it in a cool place, it will crystalize on you.  Honey doesn't spoil - ever - so if your honey crystalizes, just place it in a sunny window, or heat it like a baby bottle in a pan of warm water on the stove - not hot.  

Honey is available all year at the farm.  When the wagon is open, you can stop by any time.  During the winter, come by on the weekends or call/email ahead to make arrangements.  You can also pick up our honey at the Fresh Promises farmers market, Olathe farmers market, Wanda's Roadside cafe, Eudora farmers market and on our own website here.  One advantage of coming to the farm for your honey is that we have more choices available in size and price.  You can even bring your own container and we'll just sell it to you by the pound based on how much you want.
