Natural, Local Honey
Black Cat Apiary, established in 2016, is nestled among a stand of old-growth forest in Western Loudoun County. We are a small beekeeping and honey producing operation. Our bees forage on local wildflowers and flowering trees to produce wonderful tasting honey. We minimally filter our extracted honey to preserve all of the great benefits that raw honey provides.
In the future, we may also offer beeswax products such as candles.
Black Cat Apiary is owned and operated by William Dudley and Holly Eaton.
As with our 2021 harvest, we have a limited amount of 1-pount and 1/2-pound jars available at both Long Stone Farm locations (at their farm stand & their Paeonian Springs location)
It's been a variable spring, weather-wise; however, early spring forage has been good, and we had good bloom from Black Locust and other spring varieties this year.
If you can't find our honey, contact us at the number listed on this site. (Texting is best)
Our 2021 harvest is in and wasn't bad, considering we lost our entire apiary to a bear "disruption" in November of 2020.
For 2021, we do have a limited supply of delicious honey from foraged local spring wildflowers and trees available in 1-pound jars and a few 1/2-pound (8 oz) jars as well. We have a few small jars with honeycomb from our 2020 harvest. Typically available at the Long Stone Farm farm stand.
