The concept for the business began with a dream of moving out of a large city and into a smaller and slower pace of life coupled with the love for all the different varieties of honey and learning to reduce the amount of white refined sugar in our diets as well as the plight of the honeybees. We opened in 2014 and over these years have evolved into 2 stores in downtown Asheville and an online business.
The name of our business comes from page 87 of the book Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe.
Imparting information about all of the varieties of honey and where they come from as well as the plight of the honeybees, and that you don’t need to be a bee keeper to save the bees.
Stay in your lane. That, and take a few classes. We took ours at Mountain Biz Works and hired a business consultant. Be willing to adapt especially during difficult times.
We delayed the opening of our mead tasting bar due to COVID-19, but look forward to getting it open as soon as possible.
Setting down roots to grow and branches to reach out and collaborate with other businesses here in town to help support each other. Along with a stellar team of worker bees that we employ to help keep our hive humming. A hive can not exist with just one bee, it takes a team of like minded people in our hive to pull together and make this small but sweet business thrive.
