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.”

In order to produce 1 pound of honey, 2 million flowers must be visited. A hive of bees must fly 55,000 miles to produce a pound of honey. One bee colony can produce 60 to 100 pounds of honey per year. An average worker bee makes only about 1/12 teaspoon of honey in her lifetime.
Do not feed honey to children under 12 months of age
