Locust Honey is also called Acacia Honey. It is a pleasant tasting honey, aromatic and ranging from water white to light yellow in color, this honey comes from the black locust tree which flowers in long white racemes during the Spring.
Typically, locust honey is tough to produce even when all of our beehives make it through the winter. It is the first honey produced in the season so our bees need to be strong and ready for the nectar flow from the black locust trees. The locust trees only flower for a couple of weeks at best and typically a big rainstorm occurs which causes the flowers to fall off the trees. This limits the amount of nectar bees can gather, so we never have enough Locust Honey to get us through a year as we will sell out in a matter of days.
We also have Locust honey that has a small amount of cherry blossom in it. If you would prefer that, please let us know. It tastes just like Locust honey just a bit darker honey created from the cherry blossom nectar.

Same as my previous revirew!
Rumored to have a better hypoglycemic effect than other honey, this is my "go to" honey (Effects of honey, sucrose and glucose on blood glucose and C-peptide in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus. [Complement Ther Clin Pract. 2013]) Great Taste, Better Health, Locally Available...Great Honey.
I was lucky to get this honey, which I haven't been able to find for quite a while! It's light flavor and delicate locust blossom fragrance have made it one of my favorite honeys.
Buttery, soft, gentle. The 2018 harvest is delicious. I get so happy in spring when I see the black locust trees in bloom and begin to anticipate the deliciousness to come. There is so little of this honey and I always rush to get some before it�s gone.
I purchased raw locust honey that my brother in-law suggested based on my desire to obtain the best tasting honey. He ans his wife are bee keepers in North Carolina. They produce some of the best sourwood honey ever. He suggested acacia honey was superior in taste. I had to try some and found this site. I do agree the acacia honey is lighter in color and the taste is different than sourwood, however the price difference makes the sourwood honey even sweeter.
