Good Food Awards 2016 Finalist
As this apiary covers a wide area on the San Francisco peninsula, it is a blend of many different flowering plants and trees, and displays the terroire of the area. You will get a healthy dose of pollen which provides a bit of grittiness. More herbaceous than floral, this honey tastes of dried tea and straw, fresh grass, and lilac.
Coarse strained and never heated, this is a 100% pure wildflower honey harvested from his Redwood City Apiaries.
