Organic blueberries add flavor & antioxidants to this delicious raw wildflower honey! The main antioxidant compounds in blueberries belong to a large family of polyphenols, called Flavonoids, and in particular, anthocyanins. Anthocyanins are thought to be responsible for much of the beneficial health effects, and have been known to help prevent heart disease, lower blood pressure and increase brain function.

Zach & Zoe Sweet Bee Farm is a family-owned apiary in Central New Jersey named after the oldest children of the Johnson family. They started beekeeping in 2015 an effort to alleviate their son Zach’s severe seasonal allergies, made worse by his co-occurring asthma, by incorporating raw honey from local hives into his diet. In their initial search for remedies to alleviate his allergic reactions they kept reading about the many benefits of natural, raw honey and how local honey can help prevent allergies through a concept called immunotherapy. It’s a process that strategically exposes your body to the element you are allergic to, which over time should make you less sensitive to it. In this case raw honey, named as such because it has not been filtered or heated, contains pollen and the body becomes more tolerant of pollen, thus reducing your allergic reaction. There was a huge difference in Zach’s allergies with the addition of raw honey to his diet. Quickly the Johnson's became frequent visitors to the local beekeepers they were purchasing raw honey from, leading to an increasing curiosity about beekeeping. After months of research and coaxing by their local beekeeping friends the Johnson's decided to take the plunge and officially start their journey as beekeepers - doing it the right way. No pesticides. No additives. Just PURE, RAW HONEY from bees that they value, nurture, and love. Nothing more.
Their goal is to build community through Zach & Zoe and to raise awareness about the importance of raw honey and beekeeping.
