Good as gold

EDISTO GOLD HONEY Also known as "liquid gold," this raw, unfiltered honey is harvested from hives on the shores of the Edisto River. The hives and honeybees sit among the bushes of an organic blueberry farm in Branchville. Yes, it's sweet and delicious, but what's more, unpasteurized honey contains antioxidants and trace amounts of our favorite superfood, bee pollen. You can find it at Sea Eagle Market in Beaufort and Calhoun Street Gallery in Bluffton.

A sweeter way to start the day

MORNING GLORY HOMESTEAD What began as a family’s homestead on St. Helena Island has turned into a productive farm and educational tool for the community. Belinda and Tony Jones are active beekeepers and members of the Lowcountry Beekeeping Association. The expansion of their family farm created an opportunity for both of them to share the traditions, culture and foods of their Gullah heritage. Morning Glory Homestead offers youth camping programs, in-person and virtual school visits and tours of St. Helena Island that explore its history through the land and its produce. Their organic and sustainable agricultural practices make their produce packages an enticing addition to their jars of local raw honey. After a fresh harvest Morning Glory honey can be purchased at their online store or on-site at the farm.

Sweet on you

HILTON HEAD HONEY Since the early 1980s Hilton Head Honey has seeped into dishes, drinks and desserts all across Beaufort County. Its honey comes from a series of local hives that are maintained by dedicated beekeepers. With the recent passing of one of Hilton Head Honey’s beloved beekeepers, the brand now dedicates a portion of its proceeds to finding a cure to ALS. Like its label reads, Hilton Head Honey is made “by bees for local honey lovers.” Hilton Head Honey can be found in many SERG Group restaurants as well as in Burkes’s Main Street Pharmacy, Ulmer’s Pharmacy and in owner Jeanne Thomas’s family counseling office on Pennington Drive.
