White House Honeybee Farm, located just below Shelby in the foothills of NC, is run by Stephen and Natalie Bishop. We specialize in local honey; our honey is the real deal and has been certified by the NC State Beekeepers’ Association.
According to the USDA, nearly 80% of the honey consumed in the United States is imported. Most honey in the grocery store has been heated and filtered to remove pollen grains. Removing pollen makes honey untraceable. This allows honey from China to be funneled through other countries, like Vietnam. Currently, Chinese honey is banned in Europe for health concerns and faces steep tariffs in the United States for trade dumping.
Our honey, however, is 100% pure, local, and straight from our hives. Our honey has never been heated. We coarsely strain our honey to remove debris, but pollen remains. Some people believe a spoonful of local honey a day helps with allergies. If so, surely no sweeter medicine exists!
We sell our honey through the Foothills Farmers’ Market in Shelby, NC. Or you can give Stephen a call at 910-206-1546 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to buy honey.
