Aster Lane Honey Logo

Aster Lane Honey is home to 20 hives, give or take. Our two small bee yards are tucked away in West Grey, surrounded by hay fields, wild flower meadows, vegetables, forests, and orchards. The honey we harvest is centrifuged out of the honeycomb and is left to settle allowing wax and other debris to separate before jarring. Some pieces of wax may make it in to the jar; it's raw!

Raw honey is more likely to crystallize, which is totally fine. But if this happens to you, and liquid honey is your preference, simply place the jar in a bowl of warm water. At temperatures above 43℃ (110℉), antioxidants, enzymes, and other goodies are said to breakdown. So you might need to change the water a few times over the course of a day or so.
