2022 Honey Harvest

White House Honeybee Farm is located Shelby NC and is operated by Natalie and Stephen Bishop. While we’ve been keeping bees on-site for the last several years, honey bees are no stranger to White House Farm. Like us, Natalie’s great-grandfather kept hives next to a fruit orchard on the farm.

Our honey bees work a grove of tulip poplar trees, pastures of clover, muscadine vines, and our wildflower pollinator plots. Our honey, which is raw and coarsely strained to remove debris, has been certified local by the NC State Beekeepers’ Association.

To purchase honey, contact us by giving Natalie a call at 704-695-2110 or message our Facebook page at:  https://www.facebook.com/whitehousefarmnc/. You can also visit the self-serve honor box at the farm or find our honey at Got Books (Shelby, NC) or Rhodesdale Farm Store (Kings Mountain, NC).

  1. I can relate to the 100-year-old house. Ours was on the book of deeds when the first book was started at the County Courthouse. Family members still live on the properties boarding the farm and I was able to copy their old family pictures of the house and frame them for us. The farm was strip-mined years ago and my husband has made it his “hobby” to get it back to a working farm with beef cattle (he is a veterinarian by trade….farmer by birth).

    1. That sounds so wonderful! It’s such a great thing to have family land that you can connect to – whether through photographs, living there, or just doing the same activities that took place there. 🙂 Love your blog btw – is that the house in the main picture?

  2. I have the oldest barn as my header photo. We just had the Amish build us a second barn because the herd is growing. I have photos of the original family members outside that barn (one of them is sitting on a bull) from 1921, I placed a new picture next to it of our kids with their 4H steers in a similar set up with the barn behind them. Nothing has changed on that barn over the 90+ years.
