A Honey of a Round-up

Bee Raw Honey

New York City-based Bee Raw Honey works with family-owned apiaries across the country for its American Honey Collection of raw, unfiltered, single varietal regional honeys. The selections include Blueberry and Wild Raspberry Honeys from Maine; Cranberry Honey from Wisconsin; and Star Thistle and Sweet Yellow Clover Honeys from Colorado. Can’t decide between flavors? Try the tasting flights. www.beeraw.com

Magnolia Honey Company

The bees that produce Magnolia Honey have been bred in Woodville, MS, since 1947. Beyond the sense of history, savor the flavor of Magnolia’s simple honey, or to really kick- start breakfast, try a piece of bread, spread with one of its homemade honey-sweetened jellies, such as the award-winning Raspberry William. www.magnoliahoney.com

Marshall’s Farm Honey

Recently featured on the Planet Green Channel, this San Francisco Bay area-made honey is raw and unfiltered. The pollen floating within means this stuff is the real thing. www.marshallshoney.com

Savannah Bee Company

Coastal Georgia is the backdrop to this company, which hopes to bring honey to the masses with its attractively priced Everyday Honey line. Among the offerings: honeys for tea, cooking on the grill, and pairing with cheese. www.savannahbee.com

Wholesome Sweetners

This multi-floral, organic honey is from Fair Trade-certified cooperatives in the Yucatan and Chiapas in Mexico, and available in convenient squeeze bottles. www.wholesomesweetners.com


From the remote Miombo forests of Zambia comes Zambezi Organic Forest Honey. The exotic amber liquid is wild-crafted by several thousand organic farmers. www.zambezihoney.com
