Since we are a honey bee research company and queen breeder first, some years we have no honey to sell, and others we have plenty; it depends on the honey bees and the weather conditions that year. If we are out of stock, you can call us, and we will provide you with when we expect to have honey available.
The small honeycomb treats inside can be eaten with wax and all.
Even though using chemical treatment, both synthetic and organic, is a standard practice in the industry(whether local or commercial) – it currently does serve a purpose in halting honey bee deaths as the industry finds ways to improve honey bee survivability and stop the substantial death losses – one of those ways, what we are working on, is breeding for survivability in queens – this is why we don’t use any chemical treatments in any of our apiaries which is why our honey contains no beekeeper added chemicals. We do believe that sustainable beekeeping will mostly be chemical-free in the future, but that’s not the current situation in the industry.
Also, some honey that is bought in the US can also be adulterated indirectly or directly with sugar syrups which turns sugar syrup into a type of honey-like substance that is more of junk food instead of a healthy treat – you can read out an article about it here: Can Honey Bee’s Turn Sugar Syrup Into Honey?
Some beekeepers can do this by overfeeding their honey bees sugar syrup, which can harm the health of the honey bee, but increases adulterated honey yields. Responsible beekeeping has at its core the health of the honey bee in a higher category than increased profits. That is why we as a practice use sugar syrup sparingly as a tool to halt starvation, not a tactic to lower honey costs or increase impure yields – so you know your getting only pure raw honey in every one of our jars.
