About Our Natural Honey

Our honey is very minimally processed.   This means the color and clarity of our honey may vary from hive to hive and even bottle to bottle.

6210099178_6e1e72c116_zWe are completely transparent about our honey processing:

~ All of our honey is manually extracted using a hand extractor.  We extra just two frames of honey at a time.

~ We never artificially heat our honey during the extraction or filtering process

~ Our bees are raised in and honey produced in natural wood boxes and frames with natural bees wax foundations

~ Our bees are not treated chemically to control mites, enhance honey production or for any other purpose

If you would like to visit our bees, contact us by email ( c@vanoosterhout.com ) and we will be happy to show you around.   Because we are an extremely low volume operation, we are not equipped for walk-in visits without prior notification.
