Artisan Honey

Patagonia Bee artisan honey began when co-founders Jacob Perry and Ross Ferguson trekked through Chile in 2011, and knew they had to go back. They did, and are now supporting that local beekeeping community with fair wages–and a way for them to share their unique honey. This raw and GMO- and pesticide-free honey is monofloral, which means each small batch is sourced from the nectar of one plant—in this case, from the flowering trees of the Patagonian rainforest. The fragrant flavors are deliciously different from traditional honey, which is often a blend from many hives, and even many countries. Any of the stand-out flavors make a tasty accompaniment to cheese or fruit or are delicious to enjoy on its own. Because Patagonia Bee practices a hive-to-hand philosophy, each jar contains honey from hives of one beekeeper. This preserves the distinctive flavor of a single harvest, while giving an economic boost to the beekeepers.

Quick Questions

What does "Hive to Hand" mean?

Hive to Hand means the honey comes from individual beekeepers who produce small batches of honey. Most commercial honey is a homogenized mixture from many beekeepers’ hives (and sometimes from different countries). Every jar of Patagonia Bee's honey, however, comes from the hives of a single beekeeper or beekeeping family. And since the beekeepers’ livelihoods depend on the health of their bees and the quality of their honey, they connect with beekeepers who are committed to sustainable and healthy beekeeping practices. Patagonia Bee pays above Fair Trade prices, so that their beekeepers earn dignified wages for their commitment to producing the purest honey possible and keeping their bees healthy.

Where does the honey come from?

The honey comes from beehives located in old-growth, temperate rainforest in one of the wildest regions of the world—Patagonia. Known for its pristine native forests, Patagonia is largely untouched by commercial agriculture and the use of pesticides and GMOs. It is one of the last temperate rainforests in the world and has the greatest biodiversity of those that remain. The result is a rich and healthy nectar supply for bees, and best of all, pure honey.

Does each honey have a distinct flavor?

Yes! Each monofloral variety imparts a unique flavor depending on the bees main nectar source. See details on each below:
Rainforest: Rainforest honey reminds the tastebuds of honeysuckle and has notes of cinnamon and clove. This honey is smooth and soft with a slight granulation that gives it a pleasant texture. Its fruity undertones leave a pleasant freshness on the palate. Often a favorite of honey lovers because it is reminiscent of traditional wildflower honey
Ulmo: Ulmo honey is one of Patagonia’s best-kept secrets. Not only does this honey have a richly floral flavor and a sweet aroma with notes of lavender and mint, it also possesses tremendous antibacterial properties comparable to Manuka honey. It’s creamy texture leads some to think this is whipped honey, but the smoothness of Ulmo honey is actually due to its fine crystallization. And we make sure it arrives to you as the bees made it—perfectly raw
Tineo: This thick honey is characterized by its intensely warm flavor that allow its “flower garden” sensations to linger on the palate. Perhaps the boldest and brightest of the varieties, Tineo honey surprises you with a spiced aftertaste. It has a granular crystallization, so if you like honey with some texture, Tineo honey is for you
Valdivian: The rarest of our honey varieties from the 2017 harvest, this honey is named after the Valdivian Rainforest in Patagonia. This honey has a smooth flavor and aroma with notes of caramel and anis. It has fresh, floral touches and large natural crystallization that make for quite the sensory experience. Valdivian honey is a bifloral variety of the Tineo and Yuyu flowers (nectar sources of the bees), so rare that this is the first year our beekeepers have harvested this variety
