Raw honey is pure, unheated, unpasteurized and unprocessed. This is the most important characteristic and health benefit of the final product, as it preserves all the natural vitamins, enzymes, phytonutrients and other nutritional elements.

Characteristics of Raw Honey

Raw honey can be in liquid or solid form when you purchase it.  If you purchase raw honey that is in the liquid form, it may crystallize or solidify over time.  This is normal and a sign that the honey has not been commercially altered by pasteurization or chemical refinement.  Crystallized honey can be returned to liquid state by warming ( not boiling ) container in water.

When the time comes for collecting honey, heavy lifting and long days fill Kainen's summer schedule.

Hideaway Hills Honey undergoes no alteration to the honey.  Honey frames are spun and the honey is extracted via centrifugal force.  The family then gets together in the extraction room and has several days of hard work and fun by helping to extract sometimes up to several thousand pounds of honey!  It is collected in a large storage tank and finally measured into food-grade pails.  That’s it!
