There are twelve beehives operating at Beach Plum Farm, and each one yields one hundred and fifteen pounds of honey when it’s harvested. Bees can travel up to three miles feeding off local Cape May plants to provide a signature pure taste. Among the healing qualities associated with honey– a spoonful of the local variety can cure even the worst seasonal allergies.  Our Beach Plum Farm honey is harvested several times throughout the year. Some consider the fall harvest particularly delicious since the bees have had all summer to feed off of sweet Cape May nectar.
