Bee Hippie products are the result of my love for all things natural, Honey and a Beegan lifestyle. Each of our products are formulated by hand in small batches. As a result, there may be slight variations from one product batch to the next, however, the quality of the product is never compromised and the ingredients are always consistent.

Making honey is a complex and unique process and is produced in several stages
Hummer and Son harvests honey twice each year. The spring harvest lasts from the middle of March through mid-June, producing honey from clover, willow, and harry vetch wildflowers. Between 30,000 and 50,000 Louisiana bees work to make the spring honeys, which are light in color and strong in sweetness. Our second harvest occurs from mid-June to September, with 100,000 to 150,000 bees producing darker honeys from ratan, woods, vetch, sunflower, astor, and goldenrod wildflowers.

I absolutely LOVE this honey and it made me so happy when I found that my local Walmart carried it here in Alabama 🙂
I got two slabs of fresh honeycomb and a half gallon of raw hone at the Shreveport Farmers Market! All I needed was one word for this review, Delish!
Great people. Great Honey. Watch out for the BBW sauce though, it is addictive!
I will never use another brand of honey again! Hummer & Son is simply the best!!!
