FROM SANDRA A. This bottle of your honey my daughter gave me for my birthday was the
very best yet. It tasted like the honey my mother used to buy locally (near Front Royal) from
a gentleman who kept hives of bees. It had the taste of the honeycomb. I so love it!!!!!
I have to wonder on what the bees were feasting!
FROM R. Vincent: "I swear this was the best honey I've ever had.... I can't get honey any more local than this!"
We sell delicious 100% pure, raw honey from bee hives in Staunton, Virginia.
Our honey is "cold-extracted" at room temperature and never heated or processed. This method ensures that all the pollen, enzymes, vitamins and minerals are intact. We tend our hives without the use of harmful pesticides or chemicals.
NOTE: Honey does not spoil and does not need refrigeration. Refrigeration speeds up crystallization. If your honey crystallizes, it can be "re-liquified" by reheating.
NOTE: Honey should not be fed to infants under one.

The Story Behind Weeks Honeybees
Retired Pastor Bob Weeks and his wife Lydia have worked in partnership with honeybees for over 30 years. In 1998, Bob sold his business and farm in Northern Virginia and became a United Methodist Pastor. In 2013, his church in Verona worked with him to establish a bee yard on a 5-acre field next to the church on Rt. 11. For almost a decade, the proceeds from the sale of honey from this bee yard have benefited a local food pantry, the Verona Community Center, and a new church plant - Aisle 7 Fellowship in Verona.
In June 2022, Pastor Bob and his wife Lydia established Weeks Honeybees, LLC. as a means to both support his family in retirement and to continue to give 40% of the proceeds from the church bee-yard to community missions. Through Weeks Honeybees, he and Lydia are able to spend more time with their long-time passion for honeybees.
What We Believe About Bees & Honey
Weeks Honeybees believes that beekeeping is about relationships and not just a business. We are family-owned and our honey is bottled by hand, oftentimes with the aid of our friends and family. We strive to ensure that in every step of the process, including tending to the hives and extracting the honey, our bees are protected, the honey retains its most beneficial properties; and we offer our customers the greatest value for their money.
We believe bees are our primary teachers when it comes to their welfare. We consider them one of God's greatest miracles. Their role in caring for creation demands that we treat them with all the respect and care they deserve.
