New, Downtown Jersey City Honey in stock!

We're now offering Liberty City Honey! The hives are right on Hamilton Square Park, so this is perhaps the most local honey you could possibly get - and it's yummy to boot! The jars are $12 per 8 oz jar, and are going fast! We hope to keep these in stock regularly, to compliment the impressive selection of South Jersey honey we already have.
