Raw Locust Honey
2021 order limits - each year we have to set limits on the quantity of locust honey customers can buy as we try to allow as many customers who wish locust honey to have the opportunity to buy some.
So this year we are limiting the quantities to 1 - 1 pound container and 3 - 2-1/2 lb. containers.
Locust Honey is also called Acacia Honey. It is a pleasant tasting honey, aromatic and ranging from water white to light yellow in color, this honey comes from the black locust tree which flowers in long white racemes during the Spring.
Typically, locust honey is tough to produce even when all of our beehives make it through the winter. It is the first honey produced in the season so our bees need to be strong and ready for the nectar flow from the black locust trees. The locust trees only flower for a couple of weeks at best and typically a big rainstorm occurs which causes the flowers to fall off the trees. This limits the amount of nectar bees can gather, so we never have enough Locust Honey to get us through a year as we will sell out in a matter of days.
We also have Locust honey that has a small amount of cherry blossom in it. If you would prefer that, please let us know. It tastes just like Locust honey just a bit darker honey created from the cherry blossom nectar.
