Fall Honey is Here!

Hi Everyone,

We’ve recently extracted and bottled some rich, dark, fall honey. The big difference between Fall and Spring honey comes from the flowers that it was extracted from. In New Jersey the darker fall honey comes from Japanese Knotweed, a plant that blooms much later than other plants, and gives honey a distinct color and flavor. Since it’s one of the only sources of nectar in the fall, all our fall honey is much darker, but still just as good!

Japanese Knotweed gives the honey a deep, buckwheat taste. It’s very different than light honey, but it’s definitely worth a try. If you’re interested in buying some, you can contact me at oliver@essexgirlhoney.com or 973-744-0701.
