Bee Branch Farm Featured in WNC Magazine

Yes, we have honey!  We are excited that WNC magazine chose to feature Bee Branch Farm’s Sandy Mush honey in their July/August 2017 issue.

We love our honey customers, and we are looking forward to meeting new honey customers.  Currently, we are not able to mail our honey.  However, you may arrange a time to visit the farm, or we also deliver to a North Asheville location on a regular basis.

Our first spring honey harvest sold out in two days!  But we are currently harvesting summer honey and will continue through sourwood bloom.

If you do not receive Bee Branch Farm emails about honey, please get on our honey list.  We look forward to seeing you soon.

Buckwheat for the Honey Bees

We sowed approximately an acre of buckwheat in July to provide  late season blooms for our honey bees, as well as a smother crop to get rid of weeds in the field.  The field is a buzzing with energy with a wide variety of bees enjoying the buckwheat; it is joyful sound.  We will leave most of the honey for the bees to provide nutrition through the winter, but I am looking forward to having a taste of buckwheat honey.  My father, Keith Wells, dropped by to see how the bees were doing and admire the lovely buckwheat blooms.
