Every jar is filled with pure, raw, unfiltered Hawaiian honey that comes straight from hives on the Big Island of Hawaii.
All honey is produced artisanally and organically without the use of artificial feeds, chemical pesticides, heat, or filtration. Only organic compounds are used to care for the bees. Each honey variety comes from a single source of nectar visited by the bees at various locations on the island at different times of the year. The distinct properties of each flower give the honey varieties their unique flavor.
DID YOU KNOW?
RAW HONEY IS A GIFT FROM NATURE THAT HAS BEEN REVERED FOR MILLENNIAHippocrates favored honey as a medicine. The Mayans had a special god for beekeeping. The ancient Egyptians reserved honey for the wealthy. The Norse god Odin attributed his strength and wisdom to the mystical powers of honey. Early Christians saw the honeybee as a symbol of purity. And many cultures, including Celts, Slavs, and Jews thought of honey as a food for the gods, while mead (honey wine) was a favored drink of mortals.
Jim Powers, stubborn, proud, cantankerous, and one of the largest producers of honey in the United States, decided the Island of Hawaii was perfect for making honey and starting his eighth and last honey operation. It was a long way from Hahira, Georgia, and his bees wouldn't be able to go with him. But Jim believed it was a tremendous opportunity, and he was intent on making the trip. It was 1972. Jim's step-son, Garnett Puett, took over the Hawaiian operation in 1987 and became the fourth generation of his family to make beekeeping his livelihood. The experience gleaned from prior generations emphasized the important relationship between the environment and the bees’ well being. While maintaining our artisanal standards, the business and hives continued to flourish and grow, resulting in hundreds-of-thousands of pounds of uniquely Hawaiian honey.
