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.

A clover, any time, to him Is aristocracy. So observed the keen Ms. Emily Dickinson.
We had our best honey year yet on Bee Branch Farm. Even with two swarms spiraling away this spring, we were able to make an additional hive by splitting two hives. Thus, we still have the three hives that made it through last winter, and now have an additional one to head into this winter. We were able to collect three honey harvests this year. The June honey was a light and sweet clover and poplar, the July honey was a golden toned wildflower with a hint of citrus, and the August honey was the lovely and oh so tasty sourwood and clover. We just finished labeling the final sourwood/clover honey gift jars and have a few available if you want honey for yourself or to give the sweetest gift one can receive. If you aren’t already on our honey “to notify” list and you want to be, let me know. Our honey sells out very quickly.
With much gratitude to our hard-working bees and our honey-loving customers,

Our first official honey harvest! We are thrilled to have enough our first year to bottle a limited sampling of our honey. Since Glenn put the supers on the last of June and took them off early August, it seems that the bees mostly collected Sourwood honey. Whatever you want to call it…it is pure yumminess! We have a limited production of this honey so our farm families will get first choice, and then we will sell to others. If you want to get on our honey alert email list, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to be notified of future honey availability.
