I have been tending the bees for two years now. Their cycles have become part of my calendar and I plant flowers thinking of what time of the year they will bloom. After a year spent in this practice I see the preciousness of this golden delicious honey and how much work it takes to make it and to jar it!

Info about Honey
Various qualities or ingredients make honey what it naturally is – as opposed to concentrated sugar water. Look for honey where the dehydration process is performed by the honey bees, enzymes are provided by the bees, learn about the nectar sources and the pollen that gets mixed in with the nectar while on the flower and while being handled by the bees.
We wish to remove wax and other hive products from the honey but we want to provide you with pure, raw honey as the bees intended the honey to be. Rat City Studios honey produced by bees and flowers in the Seattle area.
In the area we live in there are several plants that produce nectar in high qualities due to the numbers. When the bloom it is called a nectar flow. Here are a few examples... Maple Trees (April), Black Locust (May), Himalayan Blackberry ( May/June), Knotweed (July), & Ivy (Sept/ Oct). The plants nectar and pollen change the color, opacity, and flavor of the honey!
