Alice of Golden Gate Neighborhood Honey, maintains slightly over 100 hives in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. The majority of maintained hives are from West Richmond, Upper Fruitvale, and North Oakland/South Berkeley. Most are wild honey that was harvested while rescuing and relocating honey bees in naturally occurring hives. The honey is processed differently when it is harvested from a wild environment. There are no frames to support the comb it must then be crushed (with hands) to liberate the honey. While harvesting the honey, small amounts of pollen and wax enter into the honey. Her efforts are helping our local bee populations happy and healthy.
Let's support her in keeping our local trees pollinated! These Jars are randomly picked from her many Wild harvests and make a great sampler of the huge varieties in flavor color and texture. The trios are random selections of three varieties: Hercules, Richmond Marina, El Sobrante, El Cerrito, Albany, Berkeley, Rockridge, Montclair, Fruitvale, Hayward, and Claremont.
