Pre-order your 2015 South Jersey honey now!

This year, we'll be stocking up on more 2 LB sizes, so that you can enjoy interesting honey without committing to a huge jar. Unfortunately, honey prices are going up, thanks in part to neonicotinoid pesticides that are causing bee colony collapse disorder. However, if you are buying in large sizes, you can pre-order honey and save some cash!

Call the shop by April 12 to pre-order your 5 LB, 1 Gallon (~13 LB), or 60 LB sizes of honey and save 10% off the listed price. Pre-orders are not available for 2 LB sizes. Honey will arrive approximately April 17.
