About Our Honey
Carlisle Honey is raw and unheated. Our honey is not filtered. When extracting our honey we strain the honey to remove floating particles such as dead bees and wax. This does not in anyway compromise the ingredients or the integrity of the honey that the bees naturally produced.
Carlisle Honey Varieties
Spring Blossom Honey (Light)
Spring Blossom Honey light in color with a very delicate honey flavor you can almost taste the blossoms! This honey is from the early Spring blossoms of fruit trees and Spring flowers. Truly some of the sweetest and finest tasting honey you can find.
Summer Wildflower Honey (Dark)
Summer Wildflower Honey, dark amber color with a full bodied natural flavor. This honey is produced from nectar gathered in July, August, and September. Its richer color and deeper flavor reflect the rich colors of summer.
Blueberry Blossom Honey
Blueberry Honey is from hives located in the blueberry fields of New England. Honey bees are essential for pollination to produce a good blueberry crop. At the same time they produce some wonderful honey!
Red Bamboo Honey (Japanese Knotweed)
The Japanese Knotweed (aka Red Bamboo) is a rich source of late season honey. These plants bloom in late August and September. The honey our bees gather from these plants is dark, robust, with an earthy, nutty taste. Red Bamboo has a deep and dark red color when held to the light. We find this honey to be a little less sweet and very thick.
Cranberry Blossom Honey
Smooth, pungent and mildly tart with subtle floral hints, this honey finishes with a very light fruit flavor. Cranberry Honey is prized for its strong berry flavor without the harshness of the cran- berry. In addition, Cranberry Honey has a beautiful red cast when held up to the light! A strong, tangy honey from pollination of cranberry bogs.
