Beekeeper Larry Saums founded Bee Flower & Sun Honey Company in the early ‘70’s. At the time, raw honey was scarce and the majority of honey products were ultra-processed and often contained additives such as corn syrup. As an early pioneer in the raw honey movement, Larry and team were committed to providing honey to consumers as nature intended - raw, unprocessed, unfiltered, and unpasteurized.
Recognizing our commitment to an exceptional product, Whole Foods, Shop Rite, and various health food stores picked up our raw honey collection and continue to distribute it in stores across the Northeast and mid-Atlantic.
At a time when more than 75% of honey consumed in the USA is imported, Bee Flower & Sun Honey Co. proudly provides pure, raw, American made honey to health-conscious customers. As a family owned and operated business, we proudly preserve the legacy of American beekeeping.
For 50 years Bee Flower & Sun Honey Co. has, without compromise, provided honey as nature intended. We offer pure raw honey foraged by bees from various wild plant varieties. Our raw honey has a quality and flavor that's produced only in the hive. We preserve the unique flavor and nutrition of nature's nectar using time-honored techniques and sustainable beekeeping practices.
Most commercial honey is either ultra processed or pasteurized, destroying many of the beneficial properties of honey. Our honey is only gently warmed to under 105 degrees Fahrenheit to facilitate handling. This ensures that our honey contains all the naturally occurring antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins, and minerals, including traces of wax, pollen, and propolis.
No value is taken out and no additives are put in. Our honey is not a genetically engineered food.
