Pure Raw Honey, High Quality Beeswax & More (352) 235-2984
Want to know more about Townsend Honey Farm? Our family began our journey of beekeeping as a hobby in 2008. As our love and knowledge of beekeeping grew, so did our hives and honey production. After a few years, we progressed to the level of commercial beekeepers and “officially” formed our family business. To this day we are completely family-owned and operated. Annually we keep approximately 2000 hives.
Our family honey farm is located in Starke, FL which is in the northeast Florida area between Gainesville and Jacksonville. We have numerous bee yards within the State of Florida and transport our beehives throughout the state during the various blooms and nectar flows for honey production. At the beginning of each year, we also transport our hives to the State of California for the annual almond pollination.
We are State of Florida Apiary Licensed & Inspected, FDACS Retail Food Establishment-Licensed, FDA Farm Facility Registered, Fresh from Florida Members, ANSI Certified Food Protection Manager (LeeAnn), True Source Honey – Registered Beekeepers, Members of the Florida State Beekeepers Association and American Beekeepers Federation.
Our son Bo attended the UF/IFAS Master Beekeeper Program (MBP) and has earned the following certifications:
2012 Apprentice Level Beekeeper Certification, 2013 Advanced Level Beekeeper Certification
We appreciate your trust, and we'll do our very best to continue to give you the kind of products and service you deserve. Rest assured you are buying directly from the beekeepers. If you have an issue with your order, please contact us and give us the opportunity to make it right. Thanks again for your business, thank you for supporting American Beekeepers and American Small Business! Proudly Made in the USA!
