Our Honey

Honey - an amazing gift of nature! Its unique flavors come from the flora bees visit and the region / climate from where the flora grows. Like grapes harvested and wine varieties, there are hundreds of diverse flower compositions and honey flavors in the United States and hundreds more around the world.




The Minnesota Honey Company is proud to offer locally sourced honey and hive-based products from small farms, beekeepers and businesses.

FLORAL-SOURCE HONEY TASTING NOTES


Meadow Wildflower - our signature house honey
  • Late summer harvest that combines the flora of basswood, clover and wildflowers. The flavor is sweet and rich with a distinctive, lingering delicate aftertaste.
Orange Blossom - from Minnesota ‘snowbird’ bees
  • A local beekeeper migrates his bees to Florida in wintertime to pollinate Florida orange trees. When he returns in the spring, he brings us Orange Blossom Honey! A sweet and fruity aftertaste reminiscent of citrus blossoms.
Buckwheat - the darkest honey in the state
  • A dark, pungent honey with malty and molasses flavors; an earthy lingering aftertaste. A great replacement for maple syrup. Used by many mead makers and brewers.
Prairie Clover
  • Harvested in western Minnesota, near the South Dakota border. A sweet, mild flowery flavor.

Basswood
  • A Southern Minnesota favorite that offers a fresh, light flavor and distinct pleasing aftertaste.
Goldenrod/Aster

  • Late fall harvest from Southeastern Minnesota. Dark, rich flavor with uniquely complex floral undertones.
Bloomington Gardens
  • Extracted from our own hives at the Bloomington Garden Center, near the Minnesota River. Slightly darker and more complex than the Meadow Wildflower.
