Our raw Sage honey comes right out of our very own Ojai Valley. This delicately sweet honey is made from the sagebrush plants, which is different from the sage we cook with, so there will be no herb flavor in this honey. Sage honey production is a challenge in the midst of the drought in California.
For the sagebrush to give the bees its nectar, the rains must come during a specific time, and the early spring temperatures must be just right. Some years we don’t get the rain, others we get the rain but not the warmth, and some years the stars align, all conditions are right, and then here comes the honey! We never know when this might happen, so when we get sage honey it is a gift from Mother Nature.
