What’s Better Than Honey?

Raw Honey From The Folk School’s Hives

Many attest to a daily teaspoon of local, raw honey for reducing allergy symptoms and building better immune systems. Plus, our sourwood honey is just downright delicious! The honey sold in The Craft Shop at the John C. Campbell Folk School comes from the Folk School’s own hives which are located just outside the vegetable gardens.

Only $10.00 A Jar At The Craft Shop

Who Maintains JCCFS Hives?

John Clarke, JCCFS Buildings & Grounds Manager, told me:

Beekeeping classes held each spring, which are currently taught by Virginia Webb and Gerald Murphy, restore and improve the hives (and sometimes start them). The Building and Grounds staff and the Work Study Students maintain the colonies through the year and harvest and bottle the honey for The Craft Shop. The honey is a blend of Mountain Sourwood and other nectars. Most of the spring wildflower honey is left on the hives for the bees to eat. We are in a prime location for sourwood honey and it has an excellent flavor.
