Our Sage honey comes right out of our very own Ojai Valley. This delicately sweet honey is made from the sagebrush plants; which is not quite the same as 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. In order for the sagebrush to give the bees its nectar the rains must come during a very 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 and all conditions are right and then here comes the honey! We never know when this might happen so every year that we get sage honey is a gift.
