Pure, unpasteurized honey, and all natural soaps, and skin care products.

Honey is a natural resource of almost infinite variety. The color, aroma, and flavor of a particular honey depends on the nectar source. Blueberry honey, for example, tastes entirely different from honey made by bees who feed on alfalfa.

 

Honey colors range from clear to amber to molasses-colored. One honey may smell like lemons, another like chamomile tea. 

Pure, unpasteurized honey. What could be more natural?

Down the Lane Farm’s Honey 

Better for you than table sugar

Down the Lane Farm's honey comes from bees in Killingworth, CT that feed on the local nectar. Our honey can range from golden yellow and clear to a dark amber color - always with a delicate flavor.
