June 2014 - We will begin extracting honey in the next several weeks, so check in with us soon!
Our honey is selling for $7.50 per lb.
Thank you to all our faithful customers and friends for supporting the local bees this past year!
Selling pure, raw honey from our own bee hives, we manage as natural as possible and avoid chemical treatments.
We are a small sustainable apiary averaging 100-150 hives during the summer.
Our honey is not heated or force filtered, so it comes to you pure, loaded with healthy enzymes that have not been killed off by excessive processing.
Nothing is ever added to the honey or taken away, so your honey is pure and comes to you just the way the bees made it.
What's so special about honey?
Honey is God's natural sweetener, a nourishing food full of immune building properties. Raw honey has a healthy glycemic index, meaning it is slowly released into the bloodstream. This avoids the "sugar spike" that can be so detrimental to one's health.
Over the last several decades, the honey bee population has been diminished, greatly impacting our plants' ability to pollinate. Honey bees are absolutely critical to the welfare of our food supply in America, with over 1/3 of our food supply in jeopardy if they die out.
Buying honey from a local beekeeper supports local farming and is a healthy alternative to sweets.
Our apiary is committed to educating consumers on the benefits of raw, local honey. During the spring and summer, our bees flourish on the abundant array of Virginia wildflowers and tulip poplars. In the winter, we move our hives to Florida and extract delicious orange blossom honey for the spring. Raw honey from local beekeepers is quite different from honey found at grocery stores, much of which is imported, processed and pasturized. If you want the benefits of consuming honey that has not been treated with chemicals or heated at high temperatures, which kills off the nutrients and healthy enzymes, finding a local source of honey is a wise choice.
