Coast to Coast Variety Gift Crate



This crate includes 3 oz jars of Laurie’s Massachusetts Free to Bee Honey, Kirk Webster’s Vermont Honey, and Costa Chica Mexican Honey!

Laurie Herboldsheimer produces our local honey from her bees in central Massachusetts. Her hives are all in stationary locations in rural Fitchburg, Leominster, Lancaster, Littleton, New Braintree, and Ware. All of her Massachusetts honeys are harvested, extracted, and bottled in small batches, by location, under the Free to Bee label. The Massachusetts honeys are blends of mostly wildflowers and some tree blossoms. The earlier season honeys are lighter in color with more delicate yet subtly complex floral flavors. The fall honeys are darker and richer, yet equally complex. Each bee yard produces slightly different honeys ~ all are amazingly delicious!

Kirk Webster produces his honey in the Champlain Valley of Vermont, in the Middlebury area. The Vermont bees live in stationary locations and create their harvestable surplus honey in the summer, mostly from linden trees, clover, and alfalfa. Kirk’s light-yellow honey has a slightly fruity lemony taste from the linden trees, and a creamy texture that melts on the tongue. A universal crowd pleaser, our Vermont honey is delicious in tea, spread on toast with butter or olive oil, and served with soft, ripe, cheeses. Yummy in salad dressings – and in coffee and chai!

Costa Chica Mexican honey is produced in southwestern Oaxaca, in the extremely remote Costa Chica region, between ocean and mountains near the border of Guerrero, by a cooperative of indigenous beekeepers. A complex variety of native wild plants contribute to this honey’s exotic nature – spicy (not hot), with notes of fennel, anise, and licorice, a citrusy undertone and a slightly crunchy texture. The Costa Chica honey makes a fantastic lemonade and is a great addition to both sweet and savory recipes as well as charcuterie platters. Try it in a raw fennel citrus salad or with a ripe avocado. Both are incredible topped with pistachios!
