As far as I know, there isn't any real organic honey. Here, varroa mites are so widespread that if you didn't treat for them, you'd have no bees but I don't know how bad they are in other areas (my dad kept bees for years and I dabbled in beekeeping for many years until work got too busy to do it properly).
Organic doesn't mean no pesticides either. There are 'organic' pesticides that are used on many organic crops. Those are perfectly safe though, because they are derived from natural sources - just like puffer fish toxin.
