Honeycraft specializes in providing exquisite varietal local honeys while focusing on promoting and revitalizing the ecology around us.
Based in Houston, TX, Honeycraft understands that bees are necessary to maintain the health and balance of our ecosystem. We place our apiaries in the places where they will not just harvest the best tasting local honey possible, but also where they will do the most good in stimulating growth.
Our Houston varietal comes from an assortment of flowers and plants along the Buffalo Bayou, and we partner often with organizations and schools to educate people on bee ecology and the art of beekeeping. We hold our other harvest locations to these same standards, whether they’re extracting Sourwood from the Georgia mountains or Tupelo in the swamps of the Florida panhandle.
We are a small group of restaurateurs, business owners, and explorers with a passion for delivering unique flavors while bettering our environment.
Depending on the nectar source, the flavor and color of different varietals of honey can differ noticeably. Even between different years, local honey from the same flowers can fluctuate depending on temperature or rainfall. Like wine, each batch is unique, and while general consistency can be expected out of each particular varietal, the jar you hold in your hand is a one-of-a-kind flavor.
