This intensely floral honey brings the aroma of the orange groves right to your table. Prized for its citrus notes and candy-sweet finish orange blossom honey is perfect for tea, salad dressings or over a warm biscuit. Apis Mercantile has combined orange blossom honey with lab-tested full spectrum hemp extract. The extract has been tested by a third-party lab to ensure product efficacy and quality.
Liam and I first met in Richmond, Virginia as teenagers and became fast friends. In 2010, I moved to Charleston, SC to attend college, explore the historic Southern city, and surf on Folly Beach. In 2011, Liam and a contingent of Virginia friends, including Matt, our partnered hemp farmer, joined me at the College of Charleston. That same year, we started our first hives in the backyard of our St. Philip street home, tending to them between college classes and weekends spent on the beach. Matt started an expansive backyard garden growing everything from tomatoes to mint and muscadine grapes. It was an incredible home filled with laughter and friendship, and I’ll always look back fondly on those college years.
Eventually, we all moved on from that downtown house, but the years we spent there made an indelible impression on all of us. Matt would go on to start Ivanhoe Farms, an organic hemp farm in Ramah, Colorado, and Liam and I would found Apis Mercantile. Today, the three of us are still working (and laughing) together, and are thrilled to combine our passion for hemp and honey and share it with the world!
