Markey Honey is 100% raw Michigan honey. It is made from the nectar of native Michigan wildflowers. This honey is not pasteurized like mass produced commercial honey that you see on store shelves. Markey Honey is lightly strained and is not heated to prevent healthy enzymes and other nutrients found in natural honey from being destroyed.
The honey is packaged in a clear plastic container with package weight of 1 pound. Because of its unique composition and chemical properties, honey is suitable for long-term storage, and is easily assimilated even after long preservation. Honey, and objects immersed in honey, have been preserved for decades and even centuries!
