Seven years ago, Isabelle, a former civil engineer, surprised her
newly retired husband John, a former deep sea captain,
with a single hive for his 60th birthday.
How it All Started
The couple had recently retired to Marathon, Florida, after raising their children Emmanuel and Sandra. They kept the beehive in their balcony and it produced so much honey they didn’t know what to do with it. They started gifting the honey to neighbors. Eventually the hobby grew into a passion and honeyraw was born.
Today, honeyraw has more than 600 beehives
across the country producing single floral honey
Single Floral Honey
Single floral honeys differ from multi floral honeys by the predominance of nectar collected from a single type of plant. The resulting honey is a unique honey that varies in color, texture, and taste. Beekeepers time the introduction of the hive and the actual harvesting of the comb to coincide with the blooming period of a specific plant species. This is done by carefully observing the blooming periods of plants and mapping the floral environment of different regions across the United States.

Like wine, the differences in single floral honeys are sometimes subtle and complex, and sometimes obvious and surprising.
This is what makes single floral honey unique and special.

Their taste; spicy, bitter, astringent, thick, smooth and creamy. Hundreds of variations. Following the flow of honey to its plant source can take you on an adventure around the country.
