We’ve got plenty of one and five gallon bulk buckets of raw, unfiltered honey that need to find their forever homes this upcoming Sunday, Sept. 23rd from 1-4 pm, and each Sunday until Thanksgiving. Even when our bulk buckets are sold out we stock pints, quarts and half gallon mason jars of our seasonal honey crops in our home shop. You can always find out right here what we have available for each Sunday.
We have several honey crops from this season available to choose from - a late July/early August mixed wildflower honey of alfalfa, white clover, birdsfoot trefoil and star thistle in mason jars and one gallon/12 lb. buckets ($72), a fall crop of Goldenrod, Aster, Eupatorium and Knotweed that was in the hives ten days ago in mason jars and one and five gallon/60 lb. buckets ($255), and the wild and amazing teensty-weentzy crop we just took from our home hives in mason jars and one gallon buckets.
We just put up a pretty unusual teeny little crop from our home hives - a pretty pure Japanese Knotweed honey - a beautiful deep red amber color - in mason jars and one gallon buckets. Amazing. We’re calling it the everlasting gobstopper honey. It’s grapey and elderflowerry and just totally nuts. We use our home hives for breeding Queen Bees for our honey-making apiaries in Chittenden and Addison County. Try some to find out what our little neck of the lower Worcester - North Branch Winooski River Valley tasted like this summer. It will blow your mind, we promise.
Bee Haven Honey Farm is our seasonal, green-hearted beekeeping business, specializing in true raw, unfiltered honey, made with reverence for the hives and the old ways, along with a sweet spectrum of other natural products for your body, kitchen and soul.
When are we open? Sunday afternoons from 1-4 pm, July 1st through Thanksgiving, each year, bulk buckets or not. The shop is always stocked with pint, quarts and half gallon mason jars of our honey even when we don’t have our bulk buckets available. On the occasional Sunday we're away, the date is posted on this page in advance, so you can check and never make a wasted trip.

Directions to BHHF: We're located a few miles south of Worcester village, right off Rt. 12 in north-central Vermont, or 15 minutes north of Montpelier. To reach us from Montpelier, take Rt. 12/Elm St. north out of town. You'll drive past the Wrightsville Reservoir on your right and continue through the flats in the woods until you come into Putnamville. Watch for the right hand turn onto Norton Road, the bridge that crosses the river. This is the only right hand turn off of Rt. 12 in Putnamville and even though there is no longer a road sign identifying it as Norton Road, this is it, trust us. We're the first house on the other side of the bridge, a green farmhouse with white trim, a black mailbox with a bee on it and a friendly but barking hound dog.
