About the Honey

Hives for this honey are set in remote places at different elevations in Northern California. This affords a mix of both mountain and valley flowers for the bees and contributes to both complexity and ever-changing flavors. 

Beekeeper's Tasting Notes

This honey has a mellow and golden flavor that's complex yet smooth. Fruit and floral overtones mingle with notes of fresh grass and sun-dried hay, layered over a sweetness that's rich but not overpowering.

Equally well-suited to sweet or savory dishes, this honey is delicious slathered on baked goods, and excellent on a cheese plate, ribboned over blue, brie, or goat cheese. Delightful in drinks from tea and coffee to fruity cocktails and hot toddies.

Shopkeeper Notes

I selected this brand for the pantry collection because Chico Honey is produced by colleagues in a neighboring town. The Olivarez family are a 3rd generation beekeeping family raising queen and packaged bees for fellow bee keepers for nearly 60 years. Chico Honey is local and 100% pure and raw.

Honey is also a key component in a classic vinaigrette, and I also find the simple packaging really highlights each honey's unique color.

You DON’t want to hear this!

Unfortunately Liz, I am going to have to say that I will probably not be in the good fortune of ordering from you again. I do have a video that my son-in-law took when he was opening the box and saw the mess he was left with on his kitchen counter when he opened the box of honey I had purchased from you. I do not believe that the altitude is the problem as we had once thought. Quite honestly, I am totally surprised that this problem was not corrected.

I'm sorry I'm only learning of the damage 18 days after receipt! I had so hoped that the package arrived okay as I know how much you love this honey. I do doubt that altitude is the issue as these jars travel across the country and arrive in good condition, so it more likely that ordering 6 at a time is too much for the standard weight cardboard that the distribution center uses. If you'd like to try again in future, perhaps we can organize smaller orders or find some other solution together. In the meantime, please send photos or the video you mentioned and let me know what you need replaced, and I'll take care of it. Please send the information soon as I don't believe I'm able to file a claim to be reimbursed after 30 days.
