Janeta’s Hobby Honey
Welcome to our family’s small labor of love for the planet.
This RAW, unheated, gravity-filtered honey is from our own hives, which we keep by a sweet little farm pond and on acres of timber and wildflowers in Louisa County.
Every year is a little different for our apiary-adventures. In 2022, we had five happy hives going, and the bees started filling their honey supers very early in the season because our friend Julie shared several honey-filled deep frames for the brood boxes, which got them going very quickly in the early spring. This year’s harvested honey – and we had four 5-gallon buckets of it (!) – is extra-dry and rich, already beginning to crystallize a bit. We personally collect, gravity-filter and bottle our honey without use of any heat. A warm water bath will get it back to liquid state if that’s how you like it, or scoop it out in crystallized form too!
We are making jarred honey available for local pick-up at our downtown Iowa City office or at Downward Dog Yoga at 115 5th St. in Coralville during their open hours. We are not mailing our honey.
Pint jars are $15 each.
Half-pint jars are $10.
30% of all proceeds is being donated to the Shelter House in Iowa City.
Purchases can be made on-site, or pre-ordered here and we will get it ready for pick-up.
