Pure Raw Hawaiian Honey

Mahalo Nui for visiting our site.  Here at Good Job Bees (GJB), we love our bees, and they of course, love to make honey! Our family company specializes in small batch, raw, fine-crystallized honeys. From start to finish we take a lot of pride in bringing you the highest quality products we can. Whether it’s harvesting our honey at just the right time, carefully extracting and bottling, or getting it to you in its most pristine condition, every step is equally important to us.
“Our honeys will bring you as close to the hive as we can get you without a bee suit!”

What is Kiawe Honey?

Kiawe honey is a rare white honey with a delicate light flavor, and it’s quite well renowned in the honey world!  Kiawe honey quickly and naturally crystallizes with a buttery smooth texture if done right. It’s the carefully timed dance between harvest, extraction and bottling that gives us this wildly delicious, exceptional taste of our island home.

The kiawe tree grows in the arid, windward parts of the islands. It was brought to Hawaii back in the early 1800’s and is referred to as Hawaii’s mesquite tree. With it’s slender yellow blossoms, it invites the bees to gather it’s sweet water white nectar.  We patiently wait for the bees to fill the boxes with extra honey we can harvest.  Meticulous attention to detail is required. Too early and the honey’s not ready, too late, it crystallizes in the box and you loose it….

What is Kiawe Honey?

Kiawe honey comes from the flowers of the kiawe tree, a mesquite tree that grows in the volcanic soil of the Hawaiian islands.  It is a white honey with a creamy consistency and a delicate, sweet flavor that can be enjoyed by the spoonful.  When harvesting, care must be taken to harvest the honey at just the right time, as harvesting too soon will cause fermentation and too late will cause this honey to solidify inside of the honeycomb.  Our kiawe honey is pure, raw and natural and is never heated.

Our bee yards are scattered mostly on the northern third of the island.  We love the diverse climates and flora our island has to offer, and subsequently, the varying honeys the bees craft. The honeys produced can vary from season to season and even year to year. We also have yards that have an abundance of a particular tree, like the kiawe tree, and in it’s season we will make our amazing kiawe honey.
