White House Honeybee Farm

White House Honeybee Farm is located Shelby NC and is operated by Stephen and Natalie Bishop. While we’ve been keeping bees on-site for the last 10 years, honeybees are no stranger to White House Farm. Like us, Natalie’s great-grandfather kept hives next to a fruit orchard on the farm.

Our honeybees work a grove of tulip poplar trees, pastures of clover, muscadine vines in our woods, and our wildflower pollinator plots. Our honey, which is raw and coarsely strained to remove debris, has been certified local by the NC State Beekeepers’ Association.

To purchase honey locally, contact us by giving Stephen a call at 910-206-1546. We also ship honey and you can use our website to place an order: https://misfitfarmer.com/shop/

Honey Recipes

While honey is always a great add-on for breads, beverages, and breakfast foods, it also makes an excellent ingredient in some of my favorite recipes! Homemade ice cream is one of my favorite things to use honey in. It is an excellent replacement for sugar.

  1. I can relate to the 100-year-old house. Ours was on the book of deeds when the first book was started at the County Courthouse. Family members still live on the properties boarding the farm and I was able to copy their old family pictures of the house and frame them for us. The farm was strip-mined years ago and my husband has made it his “hobby” to get it back to a working farm with beef cattle (he is a veterinarian by trade….farmer by birth).

    1. That sounds so wonderful! It’s such a great thing to have family land that you can connect to – whether through photographs, living there, or just doing the same activities that took place there. 🙂 Love your blog btw – is that the house in the main picture?

  2. I have the oldest barn as my header photo. We just had the Amish build us a second barn because the herd is growing. I have photos of the original family members outside that barn (one of them is sitting on a bull) from 1921, I placed a new picture next to it of our kids with their 4H steers in a similar set up with the barn behind them. Nothing has changed on that barn over the 90+ years.
