Texas Wildflower Comb HoneyPearland, TX
Available EXCLUSIVELY at No. 4 St. James
Each season, this rare Texas Wildflower Comb Honey by Stroope Honey Farms in Pearland, Texas makes an appearance for several weeks on the shelves of select Whole Foods stores in Texas, before it sells out.
We’ve acquired the last batch of this rare Texas Wildflower Comb Honey from the 2015 harvest, direct from the farm. This honey won’t be available again anywhere until late summer of 2016.
Each 24 oz. jar includes a harmonica-sized piece of honeycomb, an edible delicacy. The honeycomb and honey are the product of bee colonies strategically located on the Gulf Coast in southeast Texas, lovingly maintained by third generation beekeeper Jerry Stroope. The bees feed on nectar from regional plants such as Texas bluebonnets, orange blossoms, and lantana, giving the honey a distinctly gourmet flavor.
This is an all natural product. Nothing is added to the honey; nothing is taken away.
Connoisseurs of comb honey know what a rarity this product is. In days long since past, honeycombs were more regularly included in honey jars. Those days are gone. Modern extraction techniques have mostly eliminated the practice, so it’s a rare treat to acquire a jar from Stroope Honey Farms. Here’s your chance.
For an extra special gift, select the “Texas Comb Honey Gift Set” above to receive a jar of the Texas Wildflower Comb Honey together with a gorgeous hand-printed Bees with Honeycomb Tea Towel (22”x38”) by Austin artist Carolyn Kimball. Carolyn is a trained artist and Masters Degree printmaker, and personally handles all aspects of production, from design, to printing, to packaging in her Austin studio. Made from 100% cotton fiber and printed using non-toxic ink, the Bees with Honeycomb Tea Towel is truly an artisanal product.
Your Texas Wildflower Comb Honey ships to you direct from the No. 4 St. James Texas Showroom in Austin, Texas following a 24-hour thaw period. We've kept the honey frozen to delay granulizing/crystalizing; once stored at room temperature, you can expect the honey to granulize after approximately 2-3 months. Don't be alarmed by some granulizing; as a minimally processed product, granulizing is natural! We ship your Texas Wildflower Comb Honey in raw Texas cotton from the historic Burton Farmers Gin.
*Please note that quantities of this product are limited.
Storage of Your Texas Wildflower Comb Honey
We've kept the honey frozen prior to shipping. Stored at room temperature, you can expect to see natural granulizing of the honey in approximately 2-3 months. Granulizing is natural and does not affect the taste or quality of the honey!
