With over 20 acres of lavender fields and natural flora, our bees are happy!
Try Indigo Lavender Farms’ Honey
Sweet, floral goodness can be found in our all-natural, pure RAW honey. Indigo Lavender Farms' bees actively work to pollinate our 23 areas of lavender fields and wetland wildflowers, and we harvest honey from these hives at least twice a year to make available to our customers. Customers rave over its taste! No additives; we do not infuse with lavender or any other fragrance or oil. Lavender Honey is like Clover Honey: the makeup of the honey is based on what the bees primarily pollinate.
RAW Honey vs. REGULAR Honey
Raw honey is best described as "it exists in the beehive". Raw honey is directly extracted from the honeycombs of the hive and then poured over a mesh or nylon cloth to separate the honey from impurities like beeswax and dead bees. Once strained, raw honey is bottled and ready to be enjoyed.
Regular honey involves several more steps before it is bottled; such as pasteurization and filtration. Pasteurization destroys the yeast found in honey by applying high heat which extends the shelf life and makes it smoother. Filtration further removes impurities like debris and air bubbles so that the honey stays as a clear liquid for a longer period of time. Some commercial honeys are additionally processed with ultra-filtration. This process further refines it to make it more transparent and smooth, but this can remove beneficial nutrients like pollen, enzymes and antioxidants.

Creamed Lavender Honey
