How did Hooves-n-Honey come to de la Cruz Farms?
In 2013, thirty blueberry bushes and a few “bugs in a box” pollinating those bushes started our beekeeping endeavors. Three beehives along with the knowledge needed to manage those bees have grown into a sideline operation of more than 100 hives. Living in an area that produces some of the best honey varietals (Sourwood, Basswood, Tulip Poplar) in the world, Hooves-n-Honey Farms strives to the provide the most pure and unadulterated honey by the bucket and jar. We aim to maintain the integrity honey deserves so that we may bring a high-quality product from our farm to your table.
We at Hooves-n-Honey Farms manage our yearly operation in order to position our hives to capture varietal honey that takes on the particular flavors based on the soil on which the flowers grow in a climate common to the High-Country region of North Carolina. Honey has “terroir”, which is a French term meaning “a sense of place”. Much like grapes growing in a region that encompasses all the factors needed to produce wine in a vineyard, honey will take on environmental characteristics unique to a special area of focus, as well.
Three primary floral sources, with slight variances in flavor from year to year, make up the largest percentage of our Honey production.
