The Sprouting Project Apiary

Organic honey straight from the source

Sprouting Project Apiary Wide

Busy as a...

Located directly behind The Sprouting Project's greenhouse and nestled quietly among the native Florida palmettos, you'll find our busiest workers. Sixteen colonies of bees toil around the clock to produce over a thousand pounds of local, organic honey each year for the resort. That honey is harvested by our culinary staff who have grown acutely familiar with the bee's primary line of defense...its sting. Executive Chef Daven Wardynski fondly remembers incorporating additional hives into the growing colony. 

"We recently decided to double the current bee population. 37 bee stings later, what was once one hive is now twenty-seven."

The current population of The Sprouting Project's colony is an astounding 2.5 million, give or take a few bees. The liquid gold that they produce is incorporated into nearly all of our restaurant's menus, with plans to bottle individual jars of local Amelia Island honey for resale to the public.
