~*~New Beeswax Policy Starting Jan 1, 2021~*~

Due to a NEW limited beeswax processing shop schedule, starting Jan 1, 2021, we will only accept a minimal amount of large custom beeswax orders at a time. This is due to the reduced time we have available for processing. This will be on a first come first serve basis and will be booked on our schedule based on availability. We highly suggest contacting us to right away to check our availability and to book your order. An invoice will be sent with the details of your order request and the time for your order processing. Payment will be required to hold your spot. Please be advised that we take great pride in our beautiful beeswax and process it all by hand. It is very time consuming and requires several steps/hours to achieve the premium quality beeswax that you all love!

We appreciate your understanding and patience. I am watching my infant grandson during the day now, so my time is very limited for beeswax processing. I want to make sure that everyone gets the attention that they deserve and the best way to do this is by an order/scheduling process. We will still accept large orders, it just may take a little longer to complete them.

It is suggested that if you will be needing beeswax by a certain time frame, to order early and allow for the shipping process too.

If you see wax listed in our shop then those are available for immediate purchase and no need to book those orders.

Thank you!

PS: Honey orders/purchases will still be completed as normal and as stated in the specific listings.

About TownsendHoneyFarm

Sales 2,175
On Etsy since 2018

Our mission is to provide the consumer with the best tasting, pure, unprocessed, raw honey & pure beeswax possible!

Our family of five started beekeeping as a hobby in 2008. As our love of beekeeping grew, so did our hives and honey production. We progressed to the level of commercial beekeepers and officially formed our business. Currently we run 1500-2000+ hives annually. We are family owned and operated and we are located in Starke, FL which is in the north east Florida area between Gainesville and Jacksonville.

We are State of Florida Licensed & Inspected, FDA Farm Facility Registered, Fresh from Florida Members, True Source Honey – Registered Beekeepers and Members of the Florida State Beekeepers Association.

Our Florida honey varieties include: Orange Blossom, Gallberry, Wildflower, Cabbage Palm and Brazilian Pepper. We also sell our pure raw natural beeswax from our bees. Limited amount of pollination service is available.

Our mission is to provide the consumer with the best tasting, pure, unprocessed, raw honey & pure beeswax possible! We let our honey filter naturally with gravity, meaning after extracting the honey we allow the honey to "rest" in the tank for a short time where the wax and large particles will float to the top. At this time the wax cappings can be skimmed off the top and put into our wax press to start the processing of our natural beeswax product. We then pump the honey from the bottom of the extracting tank into our filling tank where once again the honey can "rest" and naturally filter a second time with gravity. From this point the honey can be filled into drums, buckets, or other containers from the valve at the bottom of the tank. We have found this procedure to be very successful and produces beautiful honey that still maintains its natural raw status. Occasionally you may see very fine particles including pollen particles, that is very normal and actually we want to keep the pollen in the honey as much as possible as pollen does provide some nutritional value to those who eat the honey and identifies the honey as being pure and raw and not adulterated by adding other liquids that dilute it. Several times we have voluntarily allowed our honey to be tested by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services for chemical residue analysis in which hundreds of chemicals were tested for. Each time, the reports returned back showing “none detected”. We are very proud of that!

We appreciate your trust and we'll do our best to continue to give you the kind of products and service you deserve. Rest assured you are buying direct from the beekeepers. If you have an issue with your order, please contact us and give us the opportunity to make it right. Thanks again for your business, thank you for supporting American Beekeepers and American Small Business! Made in the USA!!!!

Frequently asked questions
What happens if my order is damaged during shipping?

This policy MUST be followed or refund/replacement WILL NOT be provided. Due to current issues with shipping carriers & THEIR policies, the follow procedure must be followed. If you receive a box w/damaged contents, please message with photos of all damaged item(s) & the shipping box with shipping label attached, & we will submit the insurance claim with USPS. Please DO NOT refuse the package. That will delay the time for replacements to be shipped or a full refund. You MUST keep all items w/ box & take to the PO for inspection/verification. Refunds/exchanges will not be processed until the items are signed as inspected & photo sent of documentation back. Due to non compliance in the past from customers, these requirements MUST be followed.

Do you offer a bulk order discount?

We do offer a discount for large bulk orders. Please contact us for more information or to place a custom order.

What is your Shipping Policy?

Orders will be shipped out within 1-5 business days after payment received depending on the item ordered.

Custom and larger orders effect processing time so that is why we allow approximately 1-5 days. If for some reason your order should take longer, you will always be notified and given the option to accept or decline the order prior to custom purchase.

We know how important it is to receive your items as soon as possible, we will always work hard to get orders out as quick as we can. We can’t however control the shipper so once it leaves our hands we have no control over their processing. Please see our FAQ for more details.

Do you offer custom and personalized orders?

Yes! Please contact us with your request and we will try our very best to help you.

What method and days do you ship?

We ship via USPS Priority Mail unless it is a very small item and USPS First Class is a more economical option. We ship M-F by 4pm EST. (That is the time our local P.O. closes)

What if I don't like the taste of the honey, can I get a refund or exchange?

No, I am sorry, we do not offer refunds or exchanges for this reason. Please read our "Honey Purchasing Policy" stated in each listing containing our honey. Also, Honey is unique in that it does not spoil, or "go bad" and it does not ever require refrigeration.

What if my order sent to me was incorrect?

We check our order packaging for accuracy, but we are human and mistakes can happen. If you are sent something incorrectly, please contact us WITHIN 24 hours of delivery so that we can address the problem.

What are your business hours?

Our Etsy shop is open to processes orders M-F 8am-5pm EST. We do answer questions outside those times, and will reply as quickly as possible so feel free to send any questions our way!

What if my package is lost during shipping?

*FIRST Please, make sure you have entered your correct shipping address while placing your order. We are not responsible for an incorrect address sent to us. If we suspect there is an address problem we will email you for confirmation.

*Please make sure you are shipping to an address that can accept PACKAGES from USPS!

During holidays & with Covid the USPS can run into some delays. This is beyond our control. Please follow your tracking number. If loss is suspected within a reasonable time, we will file a lost package search. If it can not be located by USPS in 15 days then an insurance loss claim will be filed. You will be offered either a full refund or replacement at that time.
