Where it all began -- our original processing barn.
In the Beginning – Leaving Corporate America
Laney Honey Co. began as a beekeeping hobby in the 1970’s by Dave Laney. In 1982, Dave’s job as a manufacturing operations manager disappeared, like so many corporate jobs today. Dave was 51. In order to survive financially, Dave and his wife Kay decided to further develop their honey hobby into a small business.
Dave & Kay began their venture by selling Wildflower honey to local stores. They later added varietal honeys such as Blueberry Blossom and Star Thistle.
As demand grew for local honeys, the business had to contract with other beekeepers to obtain larger supplies. This honey came from a wide range of floral sources, resulting in unique colors, aromas, and tastes. Keeping the honeys separated by nectar source was the beginning of our path towards specialty honeys.
Today, we continue to offer as many unique varietal honeys as we can. Our Indiana bees produce Wildflower, Dune Country, Goldenrod, and Autumn Wildflower, and we continue to work with other beekeepers to get the floral-sourced honeys our customers prefer.
Is it Raw?
Most important to us is what we don't do to our honeys. Unlike large bulk packers that heat honey to high temperatures and use pressure filtering, we minimally heat and coarsely gravity strain in order to retain the rawness of the honey. We do not add any flavorings to our honeys.
A Pioneering Effort
Until we started selling our blossom-flavored honeys in 1982, most people thought all honeys were the same. We now offer 12 distinct varieties of honey, from unique floral sources throughout the U.S.
We hope you enjoy our great honeys -- thank you for choosing us.
