Since 1978 Honey Pacifica has worked in the raw honey business giving us the knowledge to get you the highest quality raw honey available. In order to preserve the delicate flavors of the raw honey we make each flavor ourselves. We drive our bees to various bee sites (aka: apiaries) located throughout sunny Southern California. The bees will fly for miles finding the blooms and bringing the nectar back to the hive. The flavor of the honey depends on the nectars blooming at that particular time. When the hives are full of honey, we truck them back to the Honey Pacifica warehouse in Long Beach. There, we run the frames through an extracting machine which slices all the honey filled wax off the frames, which then flows into the barrels. After the wax and other raw particles float to the top, we skim them off. What is left is raw, unheated, unfiltered honey.
Honey Pacifica was originally began by Nick Poto, when a friend offered him a swarm. He and his sons Frank and John put in their backyard for a fun experiment. 25 years later, and we're still making honey. Nick continues to own Honey Pacifica while John manages and Frank handles accounts. All work is done by the help of friends and family. We are located at 4208 Pepperwood Ave. in Long Beach, California; right where the business began.
