Cox’s honey is produced and gathered among high mountain clover fields. It is water white in color, mild tasting, and has all the consistency of pure clover honey. Once gathered, their delicate process of extraction and packaging assures that you purchse the best product on the market. During the packaging process, they neither over heat, pasteurize, or add moisture to the honey. Cox’s does not filter the honey as this will remove a lot of the nutritional characteristics of honey. They simply run the raw honey through a set of screens to retain all the vitamins, minerals, and pollens that make honey healthy
As with most products, the closer you can get to the actual source, the better off you’ll be. Short of scooping the sticky stuff directly from the hives, you can’t get better than getting it directly from the beekeepers at Cox’s Honey!
Cox’s Honey Group Giveaway
Today we are hosting another Cox’s Honey Group Giveaway so our readers will have a chance to win some raw, unfiltered, pure honey. Cox’s honey is sponsoring this giveaway today and we want to thank them for giving us this opportunity.
Cox’s honey is raw and unfiltered honey. The company was started back in 1880 in Orderville, Utah by Delaun Mills Cox. Mr. Cox produced enough sweet honey for the entire city before moving the operations to Shelley, Idaho. Delaun kept his beehives going more like a hobby. But after World War I he began making more money as a hobbyist than his previous holdings.
During the following years honey prices became depressed and in 1925 his son, Orville S. Cox took over his bee business. Orville made the bee business his tool of trade for his livelihood and raising his family. He produced, packaged and sold clover honey.
This Cox’s Honey Giveaway is open to any resident who is 18 years of age or older who lives in one of the 48 US Contiguous States.
