Our family lives at Toby Cottage, nestled on the Ompompanoosuc, a tributary of the Connecticut River in Vermont. Having moved to Vermont in 2013, We turned an old 1850s Dairy Farm that had been out of action for over 70 years, back into a small working farm. The family consists of: 1x Wife, 1x Husband, 3x Boxers, 14x Alpacas, 16x Chickens, 30x Sugar Maple Trees, 97x trout (unless the herons got some), 802,928x Bees. Goodies: Our RAW honey remains biologically active and contains its natural quantities of pollen, propolis, enzymes and vitamins - just as our Vermont bees intended. All we do is uncap the comb, spin spin spin and drip straight into the jars;  screw on the cap and straight to you guys. We cannot take any credit for how ludicrously scrummy their honey is. It's all them. All pure, raw and unpasteurized (not heated) honey will naturally crystallize when the sugar content is high. In the case of the Toby Cottage bees, it means the girls had an amazing bunch of native wild flower nectar they were able to collect. Gently warming the honey in a water bath to no more than 110f will return it to its gloopy honey state. To be honest though, don't bother. It's yummy just the way it is, and you'll keep all the natural goodies. Tough and RAW: Our girls maintain an internal hive temperature of between 60f and 90f, even when our winter drops to -30f. Because of this, we leave them with extra stores of honey to see them through. It also means that our bees are hardy and tough, and know how to handle themselves; protecting the colony against intruders such as hornets and wasps, and even mice. Sadly, they are not so successful with defending against black bears, fishers and skunks, but we've got their back with electric fences and a troop of guard Alpacas on duty 24/7. Organic: The USDA conditions to label honey as 'Organic' are a bit bonkers and unobtainable for us small apiaries, and we've found it difficult to follow all of the girls around their two mile forage radius. All the fruit and veggies we grow on the farm are grown with organic principles and what we do know is that Toby Cottage is miles away from any commercial farm, with the closest being wonderfully organic. This means that our bees forage from rolling wildflower meadows here in Vermont. We want to hear from you. How do our girls do, compared to others?. (ADDED: November 20, 2018)
