Big Island Moonbow Farms is a small-scale beekeeping venture located on Hawai’i Island. Inspired by the plight of the honeybee in Hawai’i and worldwide, we have been caring for honeybees in an organic fashion since 2011.
Throughout the year we typically harvest the following honey varieties: Christmas Berry, Macadamia Blossom, Eucalyptus, Lehua Blossom, combinations of all of these varieties as flowering seasons transition, and several Multifloral blends, of which the main nectar sources are undetermined. As this is truly a natural product, every single harvest is different, even by varietal. Each harvest of honey is completely unique. Although predominant characteristics might be similar in each variety, the nuances will always be distinct. The color, crystallization rate, and taste are rarely exactly the same. This continues to be a source of excitement and inspiration!
Foraged from vibrant blossoms of the Ohi'a, a very special tree endemic to Hawai'i, our bees gather this unique honey in spring and summer from the forests surrounding our farm in Pa'auilo Mauka.
This light honey is elegant and sweet with delicate floral notes and occasional hints of buttered popcorn. Our Lehua Blossom honey is lightly crystallized and maintains a delightfully spreadable texture.
