Honey for Sale
We are currently selling our jars of honey at the Ojai Community Farmers Market on Thursday afternoons, Farmer & The Cook in Ojai as well as selling 5 gallon buckets. Depending on the time of year we have four types of honey available – orange blossom, avocado, wildflower and raspberry. The orange blossom is from East End Ojai, avocado from Carpinteria, wildflower from Lake Casitas area and raspberry from Oxnard/Camarillo area.
Each year we only pull a fraction of the honey to allow the bees to feed of it through the fall and winter when there is very little nectar available. Our honey is raw and unfiltered, but technically not organic because bees can travel up to a couple miles to collect nectar and it is impossible to determine which flora they have visited.
We are a locally based pollination beekeeping business, not a migratory beekeeping business, with about 500 to 600 hives. Our bees stay in Ventura County or Carpinteria, year-round, except for one month out of the year, they go to California’s Central Valley to pollinate almond trees. Please contact us if interested in hosting our bees on your farm.
