Naples Honey Company was established in 1999 by Tom May, a cellist in the Naples Philharmonic. As a first anniversary present Tom's wife Kirsten decided to give Tom a beehive. You may think this is kind of a strange gift, but Tom is actually a third generation beekeeper who spends most summers in Illinois tending to the bees at his father and brother's "Sunny Hill Honey" farm. Since 1999 Tom has spent much of his time growing his apiary, up to 85 hives, and selling his delicious "Naples Finest Honey" at many local Farmer's Markets. Four days a week you can find Tom, his wife Kirsten, his mother-in-law Kathi(Mimi) and even his father Phil at local markets stretching from Estero to Marco Island.

Naples is a unique area for all kinds of wonderful tasting honey. Local honey is said to help cure the symptoms of many allergies. Our bees never leave southwest Florida and always bring in the best quality honey for every taste bud.
In the Spring there is the fabulous Orange Blossom with its great aroma and sweet citrus taste.
Later on in the spring we have the Saw Palmetto a favorite with many locals, it comes from the palm plants in the area.
The summer Wildflower is a rich combination of all the summer plants including cabbage palm, malaluca and spanish needle.This past year we put bees in Rookery Bay, near Marco Island, it produced the most delicious honey I have ever tasted.A sweet combination of Saw Palmetto and Black Mangrove.
