Honeycomb is honey in it’s natural form, straight from the hive.

Honeycomb production is seasonal as it relies heavily on a good honey flow and strong hives.

It takes over 8 pounds of honey to produce a pound of wax. All comb honey is sold in “new wax”, wax made the same year as the honey. Wax comb is normally reused every year, and will result in more honey to the beekeeper as no honey was used in wax production.

These methods of caring for raw honey are deliberate extra work details for the beekeeper.

This extra work and loss of honey production is the reason honeycomb is so much more expensive when compared with liquid honey.

Is the extra money paid for raw honey worth it? Absolutely!

The benefit to the body and your good health is the same as eating raw vegetables compared to eating over cooked vegetables.
