ToBee Young Apiaries is pleased to see the Sacramento Bee “FEAST” featuring ARDEN HILLS GOLD Honey in their current edition, 1.11.15. As a finalist in the 2015 GOOD FOOD Awards, we are happy to provide a truly urban honey that can stand up to the standards of Slow Food advocates, who see the value of locally produced foods as an important part of our daily dietary needs.
You can find ARDEN HILLS GOLD Honey at Corti Bros, Taylors Market, Villa Sicilia, The Fulton Green Market, Elliots Natural Foods and the West Sacramento VEGGIE TRIKE – a “truly” mobile farmers market.
ARDEN HILLS GOLD Honey is also used by Thai Basil Restaurant, The Rind, The PEARL, La Bonne Soupe Cafe, Sugar Mama’s Bakery, and Matteo’s Pizza & Bistro.
We thank everyone for all your support and looking forward “ToBee” your local honey source for 2015.

Makes about 500g
- 2 cups oats
- 1 cup macadamias, finely chopped
- 2 tbs sesame seeds
- 1/4 cup pepitas [shelled preferred]
- Pinch salt
- Leaves of 1-2 small sprigs of fresh thyme
- 2 tbs coconut oil
- 4 tbs ARDEN HILLS GOLD Honey
- 1/4 cup moist, dried currants
Pre-heat oven to 160c/320F.
Mix oats, macadamias, sesame seeds, pepitas, thyme leaves and salt in a large bowl. Melt coconut oil and fold in Arden HILLS GOLD Honey in a small saucepan or in the microwave and stir in dry ingredients. Be sure not to caramelize the honey.
Spread the mixture on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and bake in oven for 10-15 minutes, until golden. Stir the granola half way through to ensure even toasting.
Remove from the oven and stir in the currants. Leave to cool then store in an airtight container.
Serve the granola with Greek yogurt, milk and smashed mixed berries . Accompany with a slice of toasted brioche or a french croissant , slathered with fresh ricotta and drizzled with ARDEN HILLS GOLD Honey. Fresh orange juice and strong coffee on the side.
A lot has transpired in the apiary this summer. The ‘girls’ have produced a fine quality honey which you can say is truly a local farm-to-fork food produced in an urban setting. We know we have a good product and decided to enter the GOOD FOOD Awards 2015 competition sponsored by the Seedlings Project.
Well__Arden Hills Gold made it to the finals out of 300 + entries in the Honey category. The honey was not only judged for quality but recognized for the sustainable management that we use, which allows the “GIRLS” to produce a high value honey with the minimum of intervention. Your continued support has allowed us to mange the “girls” so that you can enjoy the fruits of their work – or should we say ‘honey’ .
