Marshall's Farm has a hand-crafted approach to traditional honey production. Their beekeeper Spencer Marshall harvests small quantities of superior quality gourmet honey in the very special microclimates of the San Francisco Bay Area. Spencer searches out locations that support only a few hives but produce exceptional tasting honeys. The diverse and constantly-changing seasonal blooms of the Bay Area (Eucalyptus, Star Thistle, Wildflower, Blackberry, and others) produce floral nectars and pollens that differ greatly in taste, texture, and color. Spencer harvests after each bloom, isolates the honey harvested from each apiary, and thus creates the special flavor nuances and wonderful color variations in Marshall's Farm's delectably delicious honey.
Marshall's Farm honey is 100% pure natural honey. It will last forever and needs no refrigeration. If left in a cool place, it may crystallize. If you prefer liquid honey, immerse the jar in warm water until the honey re-liquefies. If you look closely at a jar of Marshall's honey, you can see natural pollen particles floating in the honey--some pollen remains, as Marshall's honey is only lightly filtered.
Honey is a healing, healthful, fat-free, natural sweetener with minerals and vitamins. It makes a great complement to tea, on toast, in baking, in dressings, marinades, and sauces, and on salads, fruits, veggies, and meats.
Honey may also help with local seasonal allergies. The concept of eating local honey to get relief from the symptoms of pollen allergies is not new. It is also logical. Pollen is produced by trees, flowers, and grasses. The bees gather these pollens, which are then brought back to the hive and become blended in trace amounts with the honey that the bees produce. When you consume honeys that are both location-specific (about a 50 mile radius from where you live and work, and/or from an area where the vegetation is similar), and when the honey is also seasonally-correct (harvested during the season that in "Now"), you are ingesting just enough of the pollens currently airborne to help your system build up a resistance to the pollens that are causing your allergic reaction. Marshall's Honey has 100 apiaries situated throughout the greater San Francisco Bay Area including San Francisco and the counties surrounding the San Francisco Bay: Marin, Sonoma, Napa, Solano, Contra Costa, and Alameda Counties. The vegetation around the bay is similar and the winds carry pollens all around the bay making the honey potentially effective in the South Bay counties as well. Some of Marshall's locations extend east through the San Joaquin and Sacramento Valleys to the Sierra Foothills, seasonally South to Monterey and Fresno, and seasonally North to Dunnigan and Willows.
