Where does Fowler’s Honey come from?

Our honeybee hives are located in the honey producing brush areas of Central and South Texas.

Our honey bees produce nectar flow from the many types of flowers they feed upon. This results in the type of honey that is produced. The main flowers the honeybees produce nectar from area mixture of mesquite and huajilla.

What are the different classifications of honey?

Most of us know honey is a sweet, golden liquid. However, honey can be found in a variety of forms:

Pure Honeyor RawHoneyis honey as it exists in the beehive. Raw honey can be minimally processed by extraction, settling or straining, but does not destroy the nutritional value of the honey.
Non-PasteurizedHoneycomes straight from the hive. It consists of all natural nutrients.
Pasteurized Honeyhas gone through a process of heating, temperatures of 161 °F (72 °C) or higher, a high enough temperature to kill potentially harmful bacteria and germs. This heating process breaks down and destroys some of the nutritional value and components of the honey.
CrystallizedHoney is natural honeywhich part of the glucose content hasspontaneouslycrystallized. Natural honey will always crystalize in time. If natural honey does crystallize, it can be returned to a liquid state by warming and it is always safe to eat.
Filtered Honeyis any type of honey that has been filtered to the extent that all or most of the fine particles, pollen grains, air bubbles, or other materials normally found in suspension have been removed thus making the honey an easier process to flow through the filter. Filtered honey does not destroy the nutritional value of the honey.
Cream Honey, also called whipped honey, spun honey, churned honey, or candied honey, has been processed to control crystallization. The crystallization is controlled so that, at room temperature, the honey can be spread like butter or jelly.
Combed Honeyis honey still in the honeybees' wax comb. The beeswax is edible.
Organic Honey must meeta set of organic standards and conditions during the honey production, which include source of the nectar, honey bees, foraging area, bee management, honey extracting process, transportation, processing temperature, and packaging materials. Organic honey is certified that it does not contain any residues of pesticides or environmental pollutants.

How much does honey weigh?

Honey weighs half again as much as an equal volume of water, according to Convert-To.com. For example, 1 pint of water weighs 16 ounces, but 1 pint of honey weighs 24 ounces.
This is an average metric, but the true weight of honey by volume may vary depending on how much water is present in the honey being used. Bee Craft notes that honey that contains more than 20 percent water by volume is at risk of fermentation. Honey kept in improperly sealed jars may absorb water from the atmosphere, lowering the honey's density slightly and leaving it at risk for fermentation. To prevent this, it is important to store honey in tightly sealed containers in a cool, dry place.

One pint is equal to sixteen (16) ounces. I cup is equal to eight (8) ounces. Therefore two cups would be equal to one pint and one cup would be equal to one half (1/2) of a pint.
