New Store Alert: Beaches Native Sun

Bee Friends Farm Admin

The sun will rise again on February 12th! Beloved grocer Native Sun is back in all its local glory. The re-established location in Jacksonville Beach will officially open next week! 

We'll be on the shelves with many familiar faces like Olive My Pickle, Hive Alive Honey Brews, Trader Hills Farm and more. You will find a variety of our local, raw Florida honey like our Jacksonville Wildflower, Black Mangrove, Orange Blossom, Saw Palmetto, Tupelo, and Gallberry. The Wildflower is perfect for Allergy season but if you are looking for something a little different try the Black Mangrove in BBQ sauces, coffee and more. 


 

Native Sun will also be carrying some specialty items like our Wildflower Cut Comb and Creamed Honey infusions like Mexican Vanilla and Cinnamon. 

We can't wait to shop at Native Sun again, hope to see you in the aisles!

January 2020: Whim Jalapeno

Bee Friends Farm Admin

January has seen some exciting projects come to fruition, and it's only the first two weeks!

Our hands-on Beekeeping Experiences started this weekend and we're celebrating with a little something to sip on! Our newest partners, Burlock and Barrel, have just debuted their newest spirit, Whim Jalapeno. It's one of their small, batch handcrafted (just the way we like it) whiskeys, with a swirl of our very own house-made jalapeno honey. 

The founders and distillers of Burlock and Barrel are some fantastic folks. They opened just before the holidays and the distillery is open for tastings and bottle purchases. Swing by and tell them we said hello!
