Taos Honey is a family operated farm business, supporting healthy pollinator populations, beekeeping and thoughtful land stewardship in Northern New Mexico and the Upper Rio Grande river corridor.
In short, our Raw Whipped and Raw Amber are the same honey with a different texture. We use only raw crystallized honey in our cold process to achieve fine crystals for a coveted smooth texture. There is nothing added, nothing taken away and our honey is never pasteurized. Around the world people call it by many names- creamed honey, whipped honey, honey butter even spun honey
Taos Honey Company owner Mike McMannon first called Taos home in 1994. Mike purchased the Taos Honey Company after apprenticing for 3 years with the previous owner, Jason, hoping to spend more time with bees while creating an honest and fair job for himself and General Manager Jeffrey Vasquez. Mike was born and raised in Michigan. Starting in the ‘90s, he spent 17 years working as a wilderness ranger and backcountry mule packer for the Forest Service in Idaho, Colorado, New Mexico and California. During this time, he realized his spirit thrives when working in partnership with other species of creatures; he reckons that mules and bees are basically the same.
