Shuga Bee Farm 🏠

About


We are a family that enjoys beekeeping, organic flower and vegetable gardening.  We are attempting to harvest any excess honey we produce and sell it locally to our neighbors. We also raise our own excellent local queens and have opportunities to host a hive for family’s that would like to help pollinators or learn how to keep bees!

Our Honey is from our bees from our hives on our property! Never filtered or mixed! We are located in 40/42 area Willow Spring / McGee’s Crossroads Johnston County, North Carolina.

We have been beekeeping in North Carolina for ~14 years and currently running ~25 hives across Johnston, Wake, Nash and Wilson county’s. We carry NC Certified Journeymen Beekeeper & Certified NC Honey Producer along with other certifications.

We are also a members of the Johnston County Beekeepers Association, Wake County Beekeepers Association, Wilson County Beekeepers Association, (NCSBA) North Carolina Beekeepers Association we sponsor and support Save The Bees NC & Johnston County 4H.

Product Details


In everything we do – selling bees to making Honey we take pride in our craft and follow in the footsteps of traditional beekeeping husbandry and always maintaining a loving relationship with all of our bees.

Raising our bees with constant education, history and experience we are breeding and selling great local Johnston County queens! In our production apiary’s where we raise our queens we ensure a high population of our best healthy hives to produce the best and highest concentration of drones. Our queens are NOT grafted or mass produced and in our opinion experience shows this creates a far superior queen bee!

In crafting our honey using traditional and advanced techniques we can ensure our wax & honey is in its absolute purest state. This allows us to create small batch ‘slow honey’ which is ultra raw, never filtered, heated or mixed! Our hard work and dedication really comes through and shines in the quality of our honey!
