We're proud to offer you Sweet Betty Bee's honey and hive products. We are members of Certified Naturally Grown and our honey is produced in western North Carolina without pesticides or antibiotics. It is unheated and unfiltered, leaving intact its amazing nutritional composition. Minimal straining removes larger bits of beeswax and spare bee parts while allowing pollens to remain (though for purists, we have a limited quantity of really, really raw honey which may have a bit of a crunch).
As local as it gets for folks around here, our honey comes from country bees at three different apiaries near Marshall, North Carolina.
We see our apiaries as a partnership with the bees and with the whole of Mother Nature. While proximity to conventional farming methods prevents us from claiming our honey is organic (bees will forage miles from home), we practice organic principles to the greatest extent possible by finding alternatives to pesticides and antibiotics. Additionally, we do not feed corn syrup or sugar to our bees. Honey and pollen are bees' natural diet. Why give them anything else?
Our strong belief and slogan is thusly Healthier, happier bees make better honey.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½?Ã¯Â¿Â½?Ã?Â©
We produce and sell raw honey, comb honey, and chunk honey, all free of chemical pesticides. Our honey is unfiltered and unheated, and we only feed honey and pollen to our bees (No corn or sugar syrup). We also sometimes sell small starter hives (nucs) and survivor stock queen cells to local beekeepers of Western North Carolina. Please see our website for more information.
Saturdays from 9am-1pm at the Madison County Farmers and Artisans Market in Mars Hill, NC. (across from the tennis courts on Mars Hill College campus)
