Seasonal Specialty Honey of the Midwest Seasons

Our honeybees roam the prairies and woodlands of Southeast Minnesota, fusing the energy of the sun with the minerals of the earth into the perfect natural food - Honey.

By tapping into the subtle pulses of nectar as different plants bloom throughout the Midwest summer, we are able to produce varieties of honey that reflect the signature scents and flavors of the season.

What Makes our Honey so Special

The Bee Shed Difference

The Bee Shed Difference

Ever wonder why most honey tastes the same and looks the same, no matter where one gets it? It is because the "usual honey" is blended from sources across the country, melding the unique scents and flavors of local flora into a sweet but uniform product. The result is rather like a fast-food hamburger: predictable, momentarily pleasing, but neither memorable nor unique. 

At The Bee Shed, we take a different approach. We know that every flowering species produces a honey with a unique flavor and scent, and that flowering plants bloom in distinct seasons. We work in harmony with the seasonal blooms by doing multiple harvests, each yielding honey with a Minnesota-unique flavor, scent and color.

We believe our Spring, Mid-Summer, Wildflower and Autumn honey are distinctively different and memorable. We hope you'll agree.

Spring Honey - First of the Year

$8.00
Early season woodland flowers and dandelions bring the landscape to life as daylight grows in the spring. Securing honey this time of year is tricky, requiring strong colonies and cooperative weather. With a mild and a slightly astringent sweetness, this pairs well with a mild cheese and, of course, on your morning toast.
