Honey bees are fascinating, aren’t they? The Bevy Provisions Co. sells locally sourced honey from their own bee boxes that reside in their back yard. We have the scoop on what it takes to make it readily available!
The Bee Boxes
There are 2 bee boxes at The Bevy Hotel’s apiary right now with approximately 50,000 busy worker bees actively producing delicious, golden honey. The Bevy Hotel tells us that Winding Road Provisions Honey maintains the boxes, harvests the honey, and also cares for the bees. If they are fed well and cared for properly, a healthy colony of bees will make about 60 pounds of honey each year. To put that into perspective, a single bee can make a fraction of a teaspoon of honey in its entire lifetime—whoa!
The Bevy Provisions Co. Menu Items Using Their Fresh Honey
Not only can you purchase your own bottle of honey from The Bevy Provisions Co., but you can taste it for yourself in carefully prepared dishes by ordering a few specific items off the restaurant’s menu! Some options include:
- Cucumber Salad
- Falafel Burger in the Cucumber Salad
- Glazed Carrots

Next to fresh, locally sourced honey, The Bevy Provisions Co. also features products from other local restaurants like the Wander’n Calf, Black Board Bar B Q, Clear River Ice Cream, Southside Craft Soda, and Bending Branch Winery. This is a casual, family-friendly restaurant that is eager to greet you and share The Bevy experience with you!
