OUR RAW HONEY DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR

Honey is unique to Heritage Prairie Farm because it is where some of our very first roots began. As our tradition of local raw honey harvesting continues, our amazing bees make their sweet, golden nectar from millions of flowers on and surrounding our Certified Organic Farm.

Through every step of the process, we are grateful for these little pollinators. Moreover, that is why we harvest in a sustainable “bee-friendly” way. We give our hives the very best chance of surviving the colder months. First of all, the farm begins each harvest process by only taking the extra from the top of the hives’ boxes called “supers.” As each frame is pulled from the hive, it is carefully inspected for the hive’s better health. In the end, our process is truly conscious of ensuring our bee population flourishes for many more years to come.

Heritage Prairie Farm believes that the best honey comes from healthy and happy bees. And we would love to share it with you! In addition to raw, we also offer five different blended or infused flavors: Cinnamon, Lavender, Cocoa, Mint, and Pumpkin Pie Spice.

Natural, raw honey contains fructose, glucose, water, nourishing enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and powerful antioxidants that may eliminate free radicals that damage healthy cells. Our new online store brings you a variety of healthy alternatives, snacks for kids, and gift ideas. Don’t forget to explore our Store to view all our raw and infused options!

The Buzz About Bees

With Colony Collapse Disorder on the rise and pollinators in the news, many of you have probably heard about why it is so important to protect our bees. So what’s the buzz about our bees? At the farm, the continual growth of sustainable beekeeping remains the utmost importance to us. We go out of our way to ensure that the way we are handling our bees and hives reflects our beekeeping mission. The Heritage Prairie Farm Bee-Friendly Methods have been featured in many articles and news outlets: Chicago Tribune, The Daily Herald, Kane County Chronicle.

We hope to further increase the genetic diversity of our bees as well as creating a ”bee-friendly” environment for them through our Certified Organic farming practices.
