Honey is truly seasonal.
We generally extract in July
and sell a little at a time throughout the year. A large percentage of our crop goes into Monica's bath products. As for the rest of our honey... We do not sell honey online. Find us at a festival, event, or at The Cotton Company in Wake Forest.
Thank you for loving honey!
Imagine... All-natural, raw honey1,2 liberally drizzled on a hot, home-made biscuit fresh out of the oven — that may be one of the greatest comfort foods known to mankind. With all of our culinary prowess, it is hard to beat that simple combination.
The Carolina Bee Company bottles a limited quantity of the finest North Carolina honey whose primary floral sources are the Tulip Poplar3
trees. We also bottle a number of other minority varieties to include a mix that we call Carolina Wildflower
. Depending on pollination contracts for the year, we may be able to produce honeys gathered from various berries and other food crops.
Not only are these varieties some of the best honeys on Earth, but they are local to North Carolina.
If you are interested in high quality, all-natural, pure North Carolina honey produced using organic4 techniques, please contact us to reserve your own allocation of heavenly sweetness.
- All-natural: no additives (unless specifically a blend), and the bees are managed without those nasty chemicals or antibiotics. We are, after all, Certified Naturally Grown.
- Raw: all we do is run the honey through a screen strainer. No heat added. This is full-flavored honey as nature intended.
- Honey: one of nature's sweetest delights; honey bees gather flower nectar in excess and process it into honey. Quality honey invokes flavored hints and aromas of the nectar's floral sources. Yum!
- The flavor of Tulip Poplar honey has a delicate nuanced
flavor that is also a bit bolder than lighter honeys like clover or
sourwood. It has an excellent flavor that is uniquely delicious. Todd
and Monica's favorite!
- In our opinion, organic honey doesn't exist east of the Mississippi due to the lack of purely organic forage areas available to the bees (the minimum forage area is roughly 8000 acres). The Carolina Bee Company uses organic management techniques though to ensure the purest honey possible. Be very skeptical of beekeepers selling organic honey.
