Dr. Weeks’ Comment: Fall is here and with the change of seasons comes the opportunity to open my hives and thank the hard working ladies before removing the superfluous honey (the “supers”) from the hive. Of all our fall harvests, this is the most exciting! What makes our honey different from most, however, is one simple act: we don’t heat it. Our honey is RAW. Why would other beekeepers heat their honey? To make more money. How so? Raw honey flows slower than molasses but if you heat it, like an oil, it becomes less viscous and flows like water – speeding up production and cutting costs. But when you heat honey, a living substance full of digestive enzymes from the bees, it devitalizes and kills the honey. So, when it comes to honey, go raw. “Eat it. Smear it. Love it!” For Lapis Lane Organic RAW honey, call 360-341-2303.
