Frequently Asked Questions

My honey has gone solid. Can I make it all nice and runny again?

Yes! All the Coalgate Honey Co. raw honey varieties will crystallize naturally over time, but if you want to get them back to their liquid state, simply sit the jar in a bowl of hot water. (Note: this does not work for our Creamed and High Country Creamed varieties).

My Creamed honey has split or separated?

This happens sometime due to the honey getting warm, sometimes the different nectars the bees turn into honey don't always mix well together. fortunately there is nothing wrong with the honey we recommend giving it a mix and continuing to eat it like normal.

 Can we buy Coalgate Honey Co. honey in bulk for a cheaper price?

Yes! Just email us at coalgatehoneyco@gmail.com, tell us how much you want to buy, and we’ll send you back a coupon code to use at the checkout.

 Do We Deliver Honey Within Selwyn?

Yes! We frequently travel between Coalgate and Christchurch and Coalgate and Lincoln and everywhere in between, get in touch with us to see if we may be passing by your place to arrange delivery.
