This family owned business is located in Gueydan, LA. Wright Honey is owned & operated by husband and wife Lonnie and Timmie Melancon, who are beekeepers and proprietors of Melancon’s Apiary LLC.
The Melancon’s started together as a hobby & eventually became a thriving local business. I went to visit their home and bees in person & could instantly see how much they valued the care of the bees and quality of honey. The Melancon’s also take pride in their work to bring you one of nature’s remarkable gifts straight from the hive to your home. Lonnie informed me how important it was to them that they sell only the very natural raw honey to any and all that purchase from them.
Their methods come from experience, that make their system run smoothly. The equipment was impressive all polished, shiny, and clean, along with the care & respect they had for their bees; it was no secret that they truly enjoyed helping people and caring for the bees; as she spoke of their process of how they move from hive to honey.
Timmie and Lonnie make and sell more than just honey, they offer a variety of yummy products like: creamed honey that comes in three different flavors original, cinnamon, & pecan. 100% pure beautiful beeswax candles (they clean and purify the air around them as they burn, unlike the other candles made of paraffin that release toxic chemicals in the air) Raw Honey comes in .5 lbs., 1 lb, & 1.5 lbs. fresh packed honey comb, and a variety of beautiful gift sets To purchase.
The Melancon family actively participate in their community by involvement with the local schools, donations to help after a storm or those neighbors in need.
They know first hand the value and importance 100% raw honey can have on the body. The knowledge they have acquired is astounding. The Melancon’s are active in their community and naturally show care by the actions they live, one example is that they make a special salve to give to their customers as a gift that have cancer to ease pain, and give them natural benefits to help along the path to recovery! Wright Honey also sells bee pollen! The pollen is collected right off of the bees body as it fly’s into the hive. Bee pollen is one of life’s little miracles; a major use among many others is a natural solution for people with bad allergies. The pollen when I tried it for the first time was absolutely the most delightful natural taste I had eaten. The pollen taste just like if you were to eat a spoon full of flowers! Incredible! The amount of natural raw pollen is so delightfully tasting, that you will try to refrain from devouring the whole jar! The amount of love and pride they take in their bees & top quality products is what makes them unique. I knew they had to be one of my first stops in this adventure to combine all of our local ingredients that are made with love and natural local resources to blend together and make products we love, enjoy, and use every day! Wright honey is an ingredient we use in the body washes and face masks that make them unlike anything else! You can find Wright Honey at local farmers markets & stores, or their website (wrighthoney.com), and follow them on Facebook. The Melancon’s products are top quality because of their love, and dedication to their bees, products, and customers!
Pollen up! Winter will be coming!
