Naked Bee Honey Farm
Beekeeper Gayle Prevatt has carefully located her apiaries in the pesticide-free environments of natural marshland, citrus grove and wildflower meadows of St. Augustine. The bee hives are kept in place year round to provide the honeybees with a variety of healthy, natural plant life for forage. They then produce honeys from such floral sources as blueberry, orange blossom, palmetto with gallberry, and seasonal wildflowers. Gayle extracts her honey from the comb by hand and never heats or treats it in any way, in order to preserve its wholesomeness and complex flavors.
Gayle is a sideline beekeeper, who is also participating in the University of Florida’s Master Beekeeping Program. In addition, she is a member of the St. Johns County Beekeepers Association and Slow Food First Coast.
You can purchase her honeys on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month from 9 AM to Noon at the pole shed, just across from her gate, at 120 West Genung Street. Naked Bee Honey is also available at The Present Moment Café, John Bouvier’s Maps and Print –both in St. Augustine- and on the menu at 29 South Eats, Fernandina Beach, FL.
