    The snow covered hives are beautiful. The birds abound at the feeders. A small piece of solitude where the cats peacefully sleep.

Natural Raw Local Wildflower Honey

 

Located in the town of Brighton just outside Rochester, New York is our apiary and gardens. At Brighton Honey, we are passionate about honey and pride ourselves at producing locally sourced wildflower honey without chemicals, antibiotics or pesticides. It’s natural, raw honey sourced from my hives. If you are looking for honey please contact us or you can purchase honey online. If you want to stop by to purchase honey and you can see the bees hard at work. Brighton Honey is 100% pure, raw, unfiltered, all-natural, and is never heat treated. If you hold the it up to the sunlight you can see specks of pollen grains and tiny pieces of white beeswax, something that missing in processed or imported honey typically from the supermarket.

Some Interesting Honey Facts

Honey is a natural plant product gathered by bees and is:

  • Naturally vegan
  • Naturally kosher
  • A near-zero carbon footprint source of concentrated energy!
  • What is honey?

    What is honey? Honey is concentrated flower nectar that has been processed by bees. The bees ingest the nectar and enzymes break down complex sugars into simple sugars. The bees then place the honey in wax cells and fan it with their wings to remove the excess moisture. Honey is 80% natural sugar, mostly fructose, and glucose. Honey is much sweeter than table sugar.

  • What is local honey?

    Local honey can be considered local to the region where the nectar is gathered and its source. The region is based on geography along with the tree cover and wildflower mix. Most of the nectar in the spring is from trees while the fall honey is from fall wildflowers.

  • Will honey help my cough?

    Will honey help my cough? Yes! Honey is a long-trusted remedy for temporary relief from coughing. Honey has also been shown to be more effective in treating children’s coughs than over the counter cough medicines.

  • How many calories in honey?

    How many calories in honey? Each tablespoon of honey contains about 60 calories. Honey has a healthy glycemic index (GI) because its simple sugars are gradually absorbed into the bloodstream. It may be better than some other sweeteners for those who need to watch their sugar intake.

  • What is raw honey?

    Raw honey is honey that is taken directly from the hive without heat stabilization or additives. Raw honey will naturally crystallize over time.
