Our Signature U.S. Grade A honey is Minnesota grown and produced by a small family of beekeepers in Little Falls, Minnesota. Bruce Marquette, a third-generation beekeeper, bottles single-source honey, the best quality you can buy. It is produced from mid-June through mid-August, when their bees get nectar from basswood and clover; this is the time of year when we get the best quality nectar in Minnesota, creating a light yellow, delicious, high-value honey. Enjoy pure or raw honey in 22 oz. jars, or avoid the mess with our pure honey in a squeezable 16 oz. bottle.
