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.

Our honey bees survived the winter and are strong. They are happy making honey! One hive that was weak going into the winter didn’t make it, but the other three are strong, and Glenn started another hive with some of those bees and a new queen. We will let them store all of their honey so they can build up reserves and go into the winter strong.
The other three hives, however, are strong and making plenty of delicious and nutritious honey. If you want our pure and natural Bee Branch Farm Honey, get in touch. This first honey of the season is a poplar/blackberry blend and it is light and very sweet. The 8oz honey gift jars are $6 each. You can see a photo of the gift jars on our honey page. Everyone loves a gift of honey.

I find it fascinating to observe the honey bees, and this year they were very interested in our young asparagus. The asparagus bed was its own little microcosm. Here is a great description from a fellow beekeeper in Arkansas.
