Candles and honey
The “humming” part of Humming Grove Farm is our bees. Not only do we keep honey bees, we also are planting and nurturing high-yielding honey plants to support all kinds of pollinators and beneficial insects. We haven’t yet harvested honey from our bees (we want them to have enough to keep themselves warm during the winter), but we do sell gourmet Connecticut honey from Wing Dance Apiary in Cheshire. We use the extra wax from keeping bees to make fine candles, ranging in price from $5 for the smallest candles to $10 for the largest. Did you know that it takes about seven pounds of honey for bees to make one pound of wax?
