New Orleans Honey - What It Bees Like

  • 800

What it Bees Like Honey is honey harvested in the Gentilly Woods area of New Orleans, Louisiana by local beekeeper, Shae Thomas. With each purchase of products from the hive, a portion of proceeds will go towards maintaining the bees and their success as a hive. 

“My hope is that more people will learn about bees and how vital they are to our world. They are amazing insects. We could learn a lot from them.”
-Shae Thomas

*Please note, if you've purchased honey in previous years, the containers for 2019 are only sold it two sizes and they are both considerably larger than average size of previous years.
