2014 was one of the weakest crops of honey we have seen since 1958. The spring started well but heavy rains and cool weather in early and mid July resulted in very little netar production. August, while clear and sunny was still unseasonably cool. The fields looked great with plenty of clover, however, the bees found little nectar. At the end of August there were many "weeds" starting to bloom. The majority of which was gum weed or Grindelia. The bees made some honey from these and it is what we call Valley Wildflower.

Love ths honey, the flavor is sweet but not too sweet. I put this honey in my coffee, tea and hot cereals as well as on bread. A case of this honey makes a wonderful gift for special friends.

This is possibly the best honey I've ever tasted. The flavors are rich and complex, sweet without being cloying or sugary, full-bodied and thick, with a incredibly smooth finish. Heavenly honey. I can't get enough of it!

This is a very nice honey. Just the right amount of sweetness, nice aroma and smooth, rich flavor. I use it mainly to sweeten my tea, but I think it would be wonderful on a biscuit or slice of bread.
