BRED, BORN, AND RAISED IN HAWAII
THE HUM OF BEES IS THE VOICE OF THE GARDEN
Our bees are all descended from locally-bred queens acquired from Scott Nelson at Raw Hawaiian Honey Company. We keep only a small number of hives, which we manage through natural and organic means only. This allows us to dedicate most of our beekeeping activities to the specialized process of caring for and working with our bees during the labor-intensive task of producing the highest quality artisanal honey varietals as well as circular-shaped comb honey.
Only the strongest and healthiest honeybee colonies can accomplish the architectural feat of building in the round. We encourage our bees to do this with the aid of uniquely designed frames with circular forms, called Ross Rounds, that are kept in the honey supers (the wooden boxes used for honey harvesting) during strong nectar flows. The final result is a round comb of hexagon-shaped cells that completely encase fresh reserves of 100% raw Hawaiian honey. The success of Pualani's bees in completing these culinary treats is a testament to the genetic quality of our locally-bred queen bees and their ever-industrious royal descendants.
Untouched, unmanipulated, and unfiltered by human hands, Pualani comb honey rounds are the epitome of the direct hive-to-table experience and, thus, highly prized by discerning gourmets. This rare and limited-edition Pualani product honors the nostalgic enjoyment of honey in its purest form, recalling memories of by-gone days when comb honey was the norm rather than the exception. Imbued with the unique geographic, climatic, and floral characteristics of the Big Island's eastern coast, Pualani comb honey rounds, and other hive products, such as 100% raw Hawaiian Tropical Wildflower, Ohia Lehua, and Christmas Berry honey varietals; fresh bee pollen; propolis, and beeswax candles, all delivering the sweetness of Hawaii's paradise embodied in its very own "liquid gold."
