Honey contains a natural antihistamine and is a great source of the antioxidant quercetin. Bee pollen is even better for allergies because it concentrates quercetin. Quercetin is a flavonoid widely distributed in nature.
What quercetin does is to stop an enzyme called hyalouronidase from releasing histamine in the linings of your throat and nose. Cells in the upper respiratory tract store histamine in case you breathe in something toxic. The immune system sends out neutrophils that signal the cells to burst open these tiny containers of histamine.
Our local honey comes from Monroe, Wayne & Susquahanna Counties. There are about 350 hives in about 32 different Bee yards on a variety of farms.
What makes our honey good for you is the fact that it isn’t heated or filtered, it’s simply strained. This leaves the pollen, propolis, enzymes and good bacteria which helps to build your immune system and also gives you natural energy. Bees will bring in a variety of different pollen & nectar that make the color and taste different as the seasons change.
WARNING: Do not feed Raw Honey to infants under one year of age.
**Different batches throughout the year may vary in color and taste due to the natural cycles of vegetation in the area.
Dark Honey also known as Bamboo Honey comes from the Japanese Knotweed Plant when it is in bloom mainly starting in late July.
Japanese knotweed goes by the scientific name Polygonum cuspidatum. It’s a member of the buckwheat family but is a persistent pest with no food value to humans.
The new shoots of knotweed look like bamboo, as some people will mistakenly identify it at this early stage. The leaves are different from those of the bamboo: they are lance shaped. In late July and early August they will produce big, showy sprays of tiny greenish white flowers.
A native of Asia and originally brought here as a garden plant, it is now found throughout the eastern U.S. and scattered through the Midwest. It has been declared a noxious weed in Washington, and has even been found in Alaska, a state that has few exotic invasives.
