Marhsall's Farm Honey
The Marshall’s pride themselves on providing 100% pure, natural, local honey – so local, they joke, the bees can fly to the markets! Beekeeping began as a hobby for Spencer, who learned the art from his grandmother over 40 years ago. That love eventually evolved into Marshall’s Farm Honey in 1992. Hives that are placed in 70 locations throughout the greater Bay Area to take advantage of the diverse and constantly changing seasonal blooms of the Bay Area – including Alpha, Orange, Eucalyptus, Star Thistle, Wildflower, Blackberry and others - which produce floral nectars and pollens that differ greatly in taste, texture and color. They strategically harvest after each bloom, isolating the honey to create their special flavor nuances and color variations reflecting diverse micro-climates. Spencer, his wife Helene, and their team of honey enthusiasts have over 600 hives in 100 locations and produce their delicious honey products at their four and a half acre farm in American Canyon.
