The October Honey Crate is all about Pumpkins.
Hope you had a fun Halloween. We spent ours giving out tons of candy and chasing our kids up and down the block. In a city like NYC where people can keep to themselves, it’s so nice to have excuses like Halloween to meet new neighbors and reconnect with people you haven’t seen in a while.
In the spirit of Halloween and the fall harvest, we decided to celebrate all things Pumpkin & Honey.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Lip Balm

Pumpkin…and cheesecake? Oh yes, you read that correctly. Delicious, spicy pumpkin and sinfully rich cheesecake are blended together for this wicked treat for your lips! Made by Misty Marcus in Holland, MI.
Slow Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Harvest Roast / Aloha, OR
A fantastic healthy snack food alternative. These seeds are sorted and roasted in small batches to ensure quality. Definitely a great complement to the sweeter things in your Honey Crate.
Cut Comb Honey
Bear Mountain Honey / Creswell, OR
Cut comb honey is how all honey used to be enjoyed. Cut off a piece and spread like butter on anything you’d add honey to. The beeswax is completely edible and will add a lovely texture to any treat. Hand-harvested by the Vander Sys Family in Creswell, OR.
Beeswax Pumpkin Candle
LaluceCandles / Mesa, AZ
This non-allergenic beeswax candle is naturally scented with a subtle honey scent. No fragrance added. It’s a beautiful addition to your autumn decor, but even better when you light it. Hand poured by Jules Erickson in Mesa, AZ.
