ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

raw honey stuart fl

Our Apiaries are in Martin, St. Lucie, and Palm Beach counties. We move our bees to expose them to fresh forage and water. We don’t treat our bees with any chemicals, and we take pride in taking excellent care of them.
Our honey is freshly extracted throughout each season and bloom or nectar flow, with the exception of winter where we are thankful for the leftover spring and summer harvest and anxiously await the spring again. Most of our wildflower honey contains Orange Blossom, Saw Palmetto, Mangrove, Brazillian Pepper, and other native plants that are in abundance.
Hani Honey Company is family owned and operated. Beeing a beekeeper is a tremendous experience, and our family is proud to be able to connect and work so closely with Honey Bees. They are truly amazing.

My name is Kaija, I have been learning about bees every since I can remember. They are a vital part of any living things life, if bees go extinct so do we. I am a big part of the behind the scenes at Hani Honey Company, I love bottling honey, as well as doing demos and delivering honey to our wonderful stores and customers. I have watched our business grow immensely, and I can't wait to see it get even bigger and better. I'm always happy to hear people talk about helping us and supporting us and honestly if it wasn't for our awesome customers we wouldn't have such an amazing business.
