About OUR HONEY:
I am a
commercial North Carolina beekeeper and my honeybees produce the wonderful
natural aromatic and flavorful HONEY that we produce, pack and sell. We
currently produce and sell two types of WILDFLOWER HONEY, and our
specialty is Sourwood Honey. With hives in over 7 North Carolina
counties from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Central Piedmont we provide our
North Carolina customers honey through selected Stores, and Mail Order via
the World Wide Web with QUALITY RAW HONEY that is never heated nor
filtered. We use only stainless steel and food grade plastics in our de-capping,
extracting, clarifying, straining, and storage processes. We have a dedicated
sanitary facility for packing and processing our honey.
Mail Order honey is bottled to order,
which brings you the freshest quality, flavor and aroma possible.
I am an
engineer and have worked for such high tech companies as Hughes Aircraft and
Ford Aerospace. While there I learned the values of quality control and
responsibility to the customer. These same concepts of quality are built into
all our operations from hive assembly and management to bottling and packaging
our quality products. We truly strive to produce the finest honey possible for
gentle method of processing HONEY is preferred by honey purists; it is
often called RAW HONEY because it is never heated and only strained. It
is the best most flavorful honey that you can buy! It is absolutely wonderful!
When you read about the health benefits of local honey, raw honey, and honey
high in antioxidants consider purchasing our HONEY, honey that is produced here
in North Carolina.
Our honey prices are listed on the right side of your screen.
our Wildflower is processed in the same manner with the same amount of attention
and care. This year our WILDFLOWER HONEY consists mostly of tulip poplar,
black locust, black gum, wild blackberry, persimmon, and clover honey all
randomly collected by our honeybees from most of our apiaries. It is a fine
tasting honey that is medium amber in color. Our Sourwood Honey is found at one
of our Sourwood Honey Websites:

We also rent our honey bees to North Carolina fruit, vegetable and berry farms for POLLINATION SERVICES.
Please see below:
We also offer Pollination Services to growers of fruits and vegetables.
I do not use any treatments on my hives; I use no chemical treatments, NO PESTICIDES, no pharmaceutical treatments, and no food supplements.
The only things that go into the hives are what the bees bring into their hives and the structural woodenware and beeswax foundation that enables the successful process of prudent beekeeping management. This is important to the folks buying beeswax as beeswax readily absorbs chemicals and contaminants and it does not discriminate good stuff from bad.. There are beekeepers using chemicals not legal that are nerve toxins (organophosphates) and many so called safe treatments seem to have adverse effects on honeybees. Many commercial beekeepers use chemicals and methods that are not FDA approved.
We strain our wax through cotton sweat shirt material as we have not found another natural fiber thick enough to offer the same degree of filtering of unwanted trash and then we pour the wax into molds per your order. After the wax has slightly cooled we release it from the mold then after additional cooling we weigh it.
Loose pieces are pieces of First-Run or Virgin Beeswax. As beeswax goes through additional melts the color and bouquet becomes whiter and less aromatic; it changes! Please see further information on the right column.
We also have propolis for sale.

Note: The 2017 Sourwood Honey Crop
was indeed fickle!
Our bees visited additional nectar
sources during the 2017 sourwood honey flow thereby reducing the percentage of sourwood honey in any one
super and frame of honey. I went through every frame of sourwood
honey in order to find good frames of sourwood to sort but to no avail.
I always reply when asked if I sell pure
sourwood honey 'that there is no such thing as pure sourwood honey" for
when the worker honeybee returns from any one trip arriving back to
her hive her harvest is almost immediately taken by another worker bee and
the harvesting worker or the field bee returns to
her nectar source. After receiving the field bee's nectar the hive bee then takes the
nectar and places it in a honeycomb cell where it is deposited along
with the harvest from hundreds, even thousands of field bees. Usually (most of the
time) the hives in a beeyard or apiary will harvest a high percentage of
sourwood nectar that is changed into sourwood honey by the honeybees.
This year was different! Although we used prudent methods of varietal
protection by the placement and timing of our hive stands as well as the
preparation of providing and placing empty frames of honey in our honey
supers at the beginning and end of the sourwood honey flow our bees in every single hive in every sourwood honey apiary
decided to also visit other nectar sources as well as the sourwood
blossoms all at the same time resulting in a harvest that is estimated
as having about a 60% content of sourwood honey. You can still taste the sourwood and
it is still buttery but the taste, color, zing, and flavor has been
reduced. It has been reduced so much that I have lowered the prices of
our sourwood honey to reflect this change from our norm:
