Like any good beekeeper, we occasionally have honey for sale. We have over 50 hives, so we do produce several hundred pounds of honey per year.
Our honey is raw & unfiltered. "Raw" simply means it is not pasteurized; "Unfiltered" in honey processing terms means that it is not pushed through an ultra-high filter. It is run through a 600 micron strainer in order to remove any stray "bug bits" (wings, legs, etc). As a result, our honey has that "natural, raw" look that is sometimes cloudy and will occasionally crystallize. Note that crystallization is a normal process that that happens with REAL honey.
The majority of our honey is available at the "Front Porch Marketplace" - which is a fancy way of saying we have a bench next to our front door where people can come get honey & wax anytime you like. Simply come to our house (google map), come to the front door, and grab a jar or two of honey. Payment is on the honor system - just drop your money in the jar in the basket. We also accept payments via Venmo (@Cornerstone-Honey-Bees) or PayPal (email@example.com)
We sell our honey for $10/lb in 1 and 2 lb jars. Other sizes are available upon request (including large jars containing raw honeycomb). Beginning in 2019, we will also have a limited supply of "cut comb" (pictured to the left).
Bee's Wax Sales
Due to the high number of removals we perform, we have a fairly steady source of bees wax available for sale. The wax is rendered using our "Solar Wax Melter" and run through a paint strainer to take out the vast majority of non-wax bits. Our customers who buy bee's wax use it to make candles, soap, lotions, and other products. We sell the bee's wax for $1/oz or $15/lb.
