Yellow House Honey

Yellow House Honey Yellow House Honey is a small apiary in Hamden, CT. The bees produce delicious local honey, which I coarsely filtered, so it remains pollen-rich.

Honey is available in various sizes and packaging. Also available, handmade beeswax soap and lip balm.

It turns out that the town tried to plan a Farmer's Market for today and next Friday before the concerts. They couldn't pull it together but neglected to call back the vendors who agreed to attend. I'm going back at 5:30 to set up for an hour or so before the concert.

Welp, I’m at Town Center Park as per the request from the town last week. There is no Farmer’s Market and I’m annoyed. There is a band setting up so - not sure about that.

I hope these are scout bees out looking to move a swarm into this bait hive!!

A larger committee is investigating. These are bougie West Hartford bees so they are carefully considering.

Pollen frames are the prettiest frames in the hive!

It's just about honey bee swarm season! If you see a clump of bees hanging out - don't spray them! Text me (860.690.6121), and I will come to retrieve them and give you the first pound of honey that they produce. This is what a swarm might look like - (pictures from DC Bee Alliance). They are very docile when they are in a swarm - they are just looking for a new home.

All 7 hives are alive and I saw all 7 queens today. Two of the colonies are weak - which I expected - if March is warm they might build up. But, if I go into the honey flow with 5 strong colonies I will be pleased! The blue queen has now overwintered twice (well - not until there are dandelions).

01/04/2022

A cold day, but the bees were tempted by the warm sun. 7 out of 7 so far 🤞I love their shadows.

01/03/2022

Yesterday it was 54 degrees, so I thought I would take a peek - good thing I did! All 7 colonies have eaten through their stores. I put 12lbs of sugar on. Crisis averted.

1/2 lb - $7
1 lb - $11

See the splash of blue? That’s the queen. This is the colony that was about to swarm. The queen has been trapped for a few days. I released her and this is her attendants taking care of her. She is really thin- they were very ready to swarm. Hopefully the days of house arrest for the queen dulled the impulse (which would be impossible in the spring…)

This bee is working this sunflower in the wind.

It's 90 degrees...but it feels like 104. I'm going to the Farmers Market...but...if I melt or the soap melts or the honey boils....well...I'll post if I'm not going to be there!

YIKES!! This was unexpected!

It's pouring rain right now, but it's supposed to clear up. It looks like the Hamden Farmers Market is a go for today. Yellow House Honey will be there!

08/12/2021

It's 94 degrees right now and there is not one bit of shade at the Farmers Market - the soap will be destroyed - so I'm not going! Sorry. If you need soap or honey please let me know and I'll leave it on the porch for you.

Love the lavender scrub!!
Thanks for the honey! Can’t wait to make some honey mustard!
I waited some time for Yellow House Honey and it was so worth the wait. Delicious and pure, with the love of the beekeeper, make a great recipe for great honey. The other products are terrific too, please try the soap!
