Honey, like wine, coffee, chocolate, and cheese, is part of America’s epicurean food awakening. Once you have eaten an exquisite honey, you will always know the difference between a generic honey and that of a raw product with unique local tastes and floral aromas.
The taste of this honey conveys an awareness of high quality and the particular tastes of Boulder County. Honey quality is partially dependent on the unique interaction of geology, geography and climate, and how these factors affect plant life. The food source for bees are nectars and pollens from local plant life. These factors combine to create a “taste of place,” a concept often used in wine and fine food culture, and germane to our distinctive honey. These unique qualities of a region, along with the skills of the beekeeper, and the texture of the honey, all combine to produce the unique and artisanal honey of Highland Honey Bees.
