Charlotte Local Honey

The owners of Charlotte Local Honey began keeping honeybees back in 2001 and they sell a full range of local honey products. Including pint jars and pound jars of their delicious and fresh Wildflower honey along with their curious and tasty creamed honeys. The pride themselves in taking a natural approach to their beekeeping and feel that not only do the bees benefit from it, but so does the resulting honey.

This is a market that offers you the chance to buy a wide range of Piedmont region-sourced items such as roasted nuts, pickles, chocolate, coffee, flowers and of course, honey among many other items.

Herb’s Honey is a local business that has been keeping bees since 2005. From just hobby beekeepers, they have evolved into an enterprise that involves 600 different colonies of bees, producing honey from 7 counties. The honey that is produced is 100% local and natural and originates from nectar sources on restricted private property, including wildflowers and clovers to name just two. Flowers that are only found in the Carolina’s.

We especially like Herb’s Honey because of their very humble beginnings and the way it has really expanded over the years. So, what are you waiting for?
