Knotweed Honey

  • Sold out

8oz of Pure and Raw Knotweed Honey from Massachusetts.  Knotweed plants, also known locally as Bamboo are an invasive species here in the North East, however they bloom in abundance right before winter and allow the bees to feast.  The bees create a honey that is dark and rich with a robust flavor.

Suggested Use: Sweeten coffee, hot buttered pastries, oatmeal and also as a glaze on vegetables.

BEE SMART: Japanese Knotweed plants are often called Bamboo because the stems are hollow and segmented, but it is actually a member of the Buckwheat plant family.  Many of us here in the Northeast cut down the hollow stems in the winter and tie them together to make homes for Mason Bees.

our mission

My beekeeping journey began over 12 years ago with my oldest daughter begging for a dog, which led us to getting baby chickens instead,  then honey bees were added to our urban backyard farm and the rest is history.  

We're urban NYC beekeepers with a mission to help save the bees and other pollinators. Bees have been declining at an alarming rate which can impact the global food supply as bees are essential in pollination.  

Our honey is pure and raw and sourced from either our own local hives or small apiaries, like us, from around the country.  We believe in sustainable beekeeping, supporting small local beekeepers who in turn work with small local family farms to help pollinate their crops and bring you real, delicious honey.
