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.

Highly Recommend ebeehoney because of their great honey and the ease of ordering and getting my orders quickly!!!
The small jar of locust honey arrived this week. It's a real beauty in the glass container, with such a light yellow color. When I tasted it, all of those childhood memories came flooding back. It reminded me of the honey that I harvested from my small hives in the '50's on our farm in middle Tennessee. We had a grove of black locust trees behind our house, and I couldn't wait each late Spring to capture the bees' sweet nectar from those blooming trees. I'll never forget the time when I presented my first jar of locust honey to my grandparents who lived next door. It's such a sweet honey with the beautiful aroma. Thanks so much for making it available. I shall order it again next summer.
Very light in color, more liquid in nature than most varieties, but also quite bright in sweetness with a subtle, herbal flavor. Especially good as a finishing drizzle on a fruit or custard dessert and also valuable as a cocktail ingredient as its liquid nature lets it mix in with cold liquids without congealing.
I tried for the first time, Raw Locust Honey. It's so good especially on my homemade bread, a little sweeter and lighter than the raw honey that I purchase locally. The shipment went very smoothly and quickly. I'm very happy all around.
This is my favorite honey. However, its quite hard to find at local vendors. Its light with a mild taste and a great sweetener without overtones that some stronger honeys might have.
