The Sprouting Project Apiary
Organic honey straight from the source
Located directly behind The Sprouting Project's greenhouse and nestled quietly among the native Florida palmettos, you'll find our busiest workers. Twenty plus 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. Food and Beverage Director Daven Wardynski fondly remembers incorporating additional hives into the growing colony.
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.
