Tropical Traditions Organic Honey~Review & Giveaway

by adustyframe ~ October 26th, 2009

organic_raw_honey-smTropical Traditions sent me a jar of their organic raw honey to try.

Mmm! It’s very nice honey. It’s a little different than regular honey.

Since it’s raw, it’s crystallized. It’s not like honey that’s turned sugarey. It seems like a spread.

Anyway, it tastes really yummy!

I never realized what goes into making honey organic.

Here’s an excerpt from their site.

In order for honey to be certified organic, the beehives must be placed in isolated areas miles from the dense population, industry, traffic congestion, and farm fields treated with chemicals and landfills. Second, a bee’s flying range is determined by their natural instinct which tells them to stay within their natural four mile range from the hive location. Finding area which can be certified organic is extremely difficult, which is why there are so few certified organic honeys on the market. Tropical Traditions sources its honey from hives in the wild frontier areas of Canada.

These regions are a rich source of wild vegetation that produce some of the finest honey in the world. The USDA and Canadian Organic Certification implies a rigorous set of standards and conditions that must be adhered to by both the producer (beekeeper) and the packager. All aspects of the honey production including the source of the nectar, forage area of the bees, management of the bees, extracting process, transportation, “lot” management, processing temperature, integrity (no co-mingling with non-organic honey), screening, and, packaging materials, are taken into account in the certification process.

Here’s the good news. Tropical Traditions is going to give one of you a jar of their Organic Raw Honey too!

    How wonderful to read about this organic honey!! Sounds wonderful and I’d love to try it. I’ve been buying honey locally for years and just found out my bee man’s bees left their hives!! He’s 80 years old and no longer in the bee business. How sad. Now I’m looking for a new source of honey. Maybe TT is it!
