Like tasting the sun and the stars, every drop of our pure, raw honey is a revelation. If you have not yet tried some, you are in for a real treat! Our honey brought home two ribbons from the 2018 Dutchess County Fair and the praise of the judges as being “the quintessence of mid-Summer honey”
At Fox Farm Apiary we believe simple is best, and take pride in offering honey that is pure and raw, as close as possible to the way Nature intended. Our bees forage in unsprayed meadows, bringing in clean pollen and nectar. At harvest time, we simply uncap the honey, spin it to release it from the comb, loosely strain out any debris and bottle it for your pleasure. We never heat our honey, filter out the natural pollen or adulterate it, for that would not only compromise the taste but also would destroy the enzymes and other health-giving benefits. Further, you may rest assured that honey in a jar with the Fox Farm label is honey produced by our own bees.
Honeybees produce honey to feed the hive's foragers and to feed and warm the colony over the long winter. Their health and well-being is our priority, and we harvest only honey that is in surplus to that needed to support the hive.
Honey harvested in the Spring, after the first strong nectar flow, is lighter in both color and taste, and is fragrant with orchard blossoms and Spring ephemera. Both the color and flavor of our Late Summer honey is deeper and reflects the character of the late summer blooms, such as goldenrod and knotweed, that fill the fields around our apiaries.
Our honey is seasonally available direct from the farm and at local markets. You may purchase our raw honey by patronizing our Retailers, or by contacting us at the telephone number or email address listed below. Currently, we do not offer honey for direct online purchase.
