Honey Maker Farm

Honey Maker Farm is a family owned and operated small farm apiary in North Carolina producing local fresh honey.  We do not treat, heat, blend, nor add anything to our honey.  We believe the bees make it perfect the first time and nothing else is needed nor allowed.  We pride ourselves on selling only the purest seasonal wildflower honey from the trees and flowers on our farm.  Quantity is always limited and dependent upon weather, blooming season, and of course the mood of the bees.

The swarms were fierce this spring with all hives doubling and a few even swarming twice.  We expected to have little to no honey this season, but to our surprise the 6 larger hives had a full super each that yielded a total of 180 pounds of excellent amber honey!  Every single frame filled and capped on both sides, top to bottom, and side to side!  We also found additional honey in other supers and in the main boxes so we felt secure in taking the 6 supers for our friends and neighbors.   All the swarms except one are busy and we  hope the summer will allow them to survive until the fall flower season begins.  I had a project of planting a dense and varied wildflower patch for them (OK ... it's for me, too!) so they could have lots of different pollens to choose from, but that didn't come to pass as we had a frog strangler rain the day of and the day after I sowed the seed and it looks like they all washed away.  I plan to leave a few pastures/fields unmowed for the summer and maybe that will give them what they need.

We will keep our fingers crossed for a good 2019 summer!
