Warm Colors harvests nectar from many sources of western Massachusetts plants. These include Summer, Deerfield, and Fall wildflower honey. We also produce varietals (they contain one primary source of nectar) including our Apple blossom, Raspberry blossom, Basswood and Buckwheat. Wildflower honey represent nectars gathered over an extended blooming period (May and June, or August and September). Wildflower honey contains many flower sources and are blended by the bees over a shorter bloom time – 7 to 10 days. Varietal honeys have a dominant nectar source, but can include other secondary floral influences, and are named after the primary nectar plant. We specialize in honeys produced in the Northeast, and specifically western Massachusetts.

Our honeys are extracted with a minimum of processing. Honey is kept below 100F during bottling to match ambient temperatures found in the beehive. We use natural “clarification”, not filtering, to clear our honey of unwanted particles and debris. This insures we will not degrade the taste or beneficial qualities of our honey.

WCA honey can be purchased at our South Deerfield shop, and found at local stores or food cooperatives (See Local Businesses selling Warm Colors Honey).
