Creamed honey is 100% pure, select, raw honey that has granulated then whipped or folded to produce a soft, smooth, and creamy texture.

Except for our flavored honey, all of our honey products are raw, natural, and unfiltered. Our honey is warmed, not pasteurized, to a temperature that allows it to pass through a particle strainer, but not a filter. Pollen particles are not removed from the honey in this process.
Prior to bottling our liquid honey is gently warmed to 140 degrees to give it fluid consistency, and allow it to pass through a strainer.
Creamed honey with both natural, and/or artificial flavoring and color added. Try our flavored honey here.

We’ve seen a lot of changes and challenges in the world of bees over the last century. As land use changes, advances in agriculture, rural development, and consumer demand continue to reshape the world for bees and beekeepers, Browning’s Honey has invested in research, innovation, and technology to tip the scales back in the bees favor. With a strong commitment to cutting edge research, stewardship, and next generation habitat Browning’s Honey Co. has become an industry leader in the effort to save the bees, and this vital industry.
You can help the bees too! Support your local beekeeper by buying local honey. You can also plant a pollinator garden or even just reduce mowing and spraying plants that bloom in your yard or property. Dandelions get a bad rap, but they are a wonderful flower for bees. Also, be careful with pesticides, especially on or around blooming plants, trees and shrubs.
Our bees are kept primarily on private property, including ranches, farms and other land in Eastern Idaho and Eastern North Dakota.
Locally produced honey will likely contain minute amounts of pollen from the plants and trees commonly occurring in the area.
The most common use for bee pollen is to help improve seasonal allergies such as hay fever. It has also been shown to help regulate the immune system, promote wound healing, reduce the risk of heart disease, and help with asthma.
Beeswax can be used as a lubricant and a waterproofing agent, a polish for wood or leather, making candles and various cosmetics, for beeswax food wraps, and as an artistic medium in encaustic painting.
We do! Various sized are available for purchase.
