Zekiah Farms is proud to sell you the best raw, unfiltered, Southern Maryland honey we have to offer. Our honey bees work around the clock to make you the perfect blend of honey. Our honey is made with the pollens from a combination of wildflowers, vegetable plants, and any of the hundreds of trees and plants that are native to Southern Maryland that are on our farm. By having the bees use a mixture of pollens they create a honey that has a very unique flavor.
All of our honey is raw, unfiltered honey that comes directly from the hive. When extracting our honey, there is no extra processing or screening, meaning that you are essentially getting honey straight from the hive. Our honey leaves the hives in large buckets to be stored until it is hand bottled by one of us just for you!
Raw honey is an excellent preventative for seasonal allergies. By consuming raw unfiltered honey, you are consuming propolis, which is actually small pieces of the beehive. Often, you can see this propolis in your honey jar in the form of small black specks. Have no worries, the propolis is not harmful if consumed, and it actually is more beneficial to your body due to the fact that you are consuming part of the honeycomb, which is the most beneficial for allergies.
Many of our customers come to our store to buy our local honey for their allergies. While our honey will only benefit people with allergies local to Southern Maryland and the surrounding areas, our honey is sought after by people from across the United States as a daily sweeter due to its unique flavor.
using it as your sweetener; add to tea, coffee, or anything you add sugar. Honey has a higher sweetness, so you have the added benefit of less sugar.
150 lb. person = 3 tablespoons
Start by taking ¼ teaspoon of the local, raw unfiltered honey orally daily. Increase the amount of honey by ¼ teaspoon every 2 days, working up to 1 tablespoon of honey per 50 lbs of the person’s weight. For example, a person weighing 100 lbs should work up to 2 tablespoons of honey daily. The dose can be divided throughout the day as desired. Continue to take the honey through the allergy season.

A easy ways to add the honey to your diet:
Infants / children under the age of one should not consume raw honey.
Consult with your doctor about any health concerns or benefits using honey to attain your health goals.
Has the honey turned into a solid block? This is because the honey has crystallized. The honey is not bad.
Fun Fact, honey is the only food that will never go bad. That being said, it will go bad if an outside bacteria is introduced into the jar. For example, if you take a spoonful of honey from your jar, stick it in your mouth, then use the same spoon to get another spoonful, then you just introduced bacteria into your jar and it will eventually go bad. Another example is if water is introduced into your honey jar.
If your honey has crystallized, use the following instructions to re-liquefy your honey.
