Massey Honey Co. began with a few privately kept hives in the hilly region of northern Orange County. The endeavor grew as the family began to rescue hives from public parks and horse trails. They cultivate and source untreated, unheated, all natural, raw honey. The honey is taken directly from the hive, extracted by hand from the comb, and strained into its raw form—retaining its countless nutritional benefits, not to mention its individuality of flavor and texture. 


5. Rockin' Rubs
