Qualla Berry Farm Honey 2017

Posted 11/21/2017 8:01am by John Clarke & Karen Hurtubise.

We are so grateful for our honeybees. We first started with bees in 1997 when we got them to pollinate our raspberries. There have been some ups and downs with bears and mites but we have learned a lot thanks to some great mentors including the bees themselves. We have two strong hives and except for a few rainy days during sourwood season it's been a good year. We are offering limited quantities of Spring Wildflower and Sourwood Honey to folks on our mailing list.

Prices are as follows (net weights in ounces):

Spring Wildflower                         24 oz   $12

Spring Wildflower                          10 oz   $6

Sourwood                                       6 oz   $6

Sourwood                                     12 oz  $12

Sourwood with Cut Comb Chunk    11 oz   $14

We don't have a separate order form for honey so just email us at jkqualla@frontier.com to inquire. We can include honey with turmeric deliveries. We will post here as the different size jars start to sell out.
