Yampa Valley Honey
Our plain honey is one of the earliest trees to bloom, and thus one of the bee’s first sources for nectar and pollen after coming out of winter hibernation. This honey is light, clean, and very aromatic and floral. Yampa Valley honey is perfect to drizzle over fresh goat cheese in a salad or to sweeten ricotta or mascarpone for desserts.
Honey is like a fine wine that is created from flowers instead of grapes. The term ‘varietal honey’ refers to the honey gathered from a single type of blossom. Each type of nectar has its own flavor and sugar composition depending on the flower that produces it, therefore the honey reflects the unique taste of the bloom. Any honey poured by Binske as a specialty varietal honey must have a minimum of 80% pollen count. This ensures that the honey exhibits the best flavor and texture possible from the blossom crop. We take pride in our honeys’ flavor and purity, so we don’t process, over-filter or add anything at all.
