Honey for Sale

Natural untreated honey is a great idea for a holiday gift. Primarily what we have left to sell of our fall honey crop are one and two pound jars.

1 pound jars are $5.00
2 pound jars are $9.00
We have some little 2 oz. jars that make nice favors. We sell those for $2.50 each.

Labels can be customized to fit your event.

Our honey is from West Chicago and Glen Ellyn, IL.
We also have some honey from Archbold, OH.

The honey is straight from the hive. It has not been processed or heated. It has only been filtered three times. Nothing is ever added to our honey.

All honey will crystallize at some point. It is important when bringing honey back to liquid state that it not be heated over 140 degrees. Sometimes we put our honey on a cookie sheet in the oven at 135 degrees for about ½ hour or simply put it in a warm oven after we have turned the oven off. We do not use the microwave and seldom use hot water on the stove as it is too hard to regulate the temperature and keep it from getting too hot. Excess heat alters honey and lowers its quality.

It is expensive to mail honey because it is heavy and it is in glass jars. Postage is generally around $5.00 for a 5 pound jar—the same as the cost of the honey. If you live in DuPage County, it would be better to arrange to pick up the honey.
