Anna’s Sweet Honey History
Anna’s Honey features a wide variety of all-natural Pacific Northwest honey in a variety of flavors. The sweet history of Anna’s began in 1980 with a woman named Arlene Page. The name Anna’s comes from her great grandmother, a woman who settled down in the flower-covered region of Kittitas Valley in Washington during the 1880s.
From the start, Arlene Page practiced quality standards for her honey. By not taking shortcuts with artificial ingredients or preservatives, Anna’s Honey is still reminiscent of the days gone by in Kittitas Valley. Every jar of Anna’s Honey comes with a promise: a farm-fresh, hive-ripened, grade-A honey taste.
Our gourmet honey products differ from those found at most supermarkets because Anna’s Honey is made 100% pure and natural. To give our honey a pure and clean taste, each honey varietal is filtered at 200 microns. This minimal filtration method removes bee parts and wax pieces detrimental to the gourmet quality of the honey. Anna’s Honey is never pasteurized, in order to maintain as much flavor and nutritional value as possible. These processes are what give Anna’s Honey its fresh and luscious qualities.
Floral honey is produced from the nectar of a variety of blossoms. Similar to fine wine, each honey varietal retains a distinct color, aroma, and flavor profile.
Flavors can range from a subtle, sweet taste to rich and robust. The color of each honey varietal can also vary from a light gold color to deep, dark amber. The flavors, colors, and aromas of each varietal are determined by nectar source, seasonal temperatures, and rainfall.
Our Clover, Blackberry, and Fireweed honey varietals are considered single-origin, meaning the bees gather nectar from primarily one type of flower when producing each flavor. The Wildflower Honey is made from the nectar of a variety of blooming flowers growing wild in the Pacific Northwest.
We sell our gourmet honey products in a variety of package sizes and types. From classic Honey Bears and Mason Jars filled with premium liquid honey to our Creamed Honey and Honey Gift Jar gift options, Anna’s Honey has something for every honey lover.
