About Five Acres Honey Farm
Five Acres Honey Farm is a Certified Naturally Grown apiary in Pittsboro maintained by Certified Beekeeper Tara Lynne Groth. Certified Naturally Grown (CNG) is a national accreditation known as “the grassroots alternative to certified organic.” Five Acres Honey Farm maintains one of only three CNG apiaries within 100 miles of Raleigh, North Carolina. Annually inspected, CNG apiaries are recognized for using natural beekeeping practices without synthetic chemicals, antibiotics, or GMOs. 🐝
Five Acres Honey Farm minimally-filters raw honey and only uses glass jars. As a small-batch producer, Five Acres Honey Farm hand-pours and labels every jar.
These are just a few of the many reasons we chose to carry Five Acres Honey Farm honey. They will have a website in the next few weeks that we will share with all of you so you can get more information.
A Few Health Benefits of Honey
Here are some health facts about honey that Tara Lynne Groth shared with us from the National Honey Board:
- Honey is a “natural alternative to over-the-counter cough medicine” and is “a wholesome sore-throat soother, a natural energy booster”
- “Honey contains a wide array of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants. Flavonoids and phenolic acids, which act as antioxidants, are found in honey”
- “Honey can help maintain muscle glycogen, also known as stored carbohydrates, which gives athletes the boost they need when they need it most”
