Catskill Provisions Raw Wildflower Fall Honey
- THE STORY
Pure. Raw. Honey.
Catskill Provisions Fall Wildflower Honey comes from hives placed in Delaware and Sullivan counties in the Catskill Mountains. A complex honey with flavors of deep chestnut and maple, it pairs perfectly with aged cheeses, chocolate, and dark tea. Ideal for use in marinades and cocktails.
Best known for their honey products, Catskill Provisions began in 2003 when founder Claire Marin started beekeeping as a hobby. In 2010 she quit her day job as a New York publicist and created Catskill Provisions. Catskills now manages over 700 hives in Delaware and Sullivan Counties and one of New York's only inner-city hives - on West 10th St. The honey is harvested twice a year, in the spring and fall. By harvesting honey as infrequently as possible they're able to follow the company motto "Happy Bees Make Better Honey".
Martin was inspired by bees' work ethics – social creatures working for the benefit of the group – and aimed to provide sustainable, quality, raw, organic products. Catskill Provisions pride themselves on using resources as local as possible to their small corner in the Northwest of the Catskill Mountains. This includes employing people from within the local community, and only selling to a list of clients who are like-minded in their sustainable philosophy. She has used this to expand her line of products to include maple syrup, pancake mixes, truffles, and sauces & marinades.
In 2013 Catskills Provisions won a First We Feast: Best Independent American Food Brand award.
