Charleston Bees and Honey | West Ashley | Local Foods, Lowcountry Farms | Local Food
Larry Sexton not only raises honeybees, he’ll remove wild bees from people’s property. He has 40 hives that make up Charleston Bees and Honey. All the honey he collects and sells is raw; Sexton simply gathers it from the hive and then strains and bottles it for sale. People can call him (he does most of his orders by phone) and fill their own jars with honey, or buy a pre-packaged jar — a pint retails at $10. You can find Charleston Bees and Honey at Charleston Hardware on Wappoo Road and at Charleston Pedal Pushers on Main Road. Sexton helps pollinate a farm for the Jenkin’s Orphanage. He’s gained clients primarily through word of mouth and, of course, referrals from the City of Charleston’s Department of Animal Control. Sexton also sells beeswax candles and hand cream made from milk and honey.
