2 Queens Honey was started in 2008 by artist/designer Charles Wilkin because he was looking for danger, when no one wanted to join him in skydiving he choose beekeeping instead. He quickly discovered bees are not dangerous but incredibly gentle creatures. As Charles’ passion for bees grew, so did the demand for 2 Queens honey, which lead to the addition of fine loose leaf tea and handmade cosmetics. In 2015 Martin Higgins joined as a partner and head coffee roaster as our products line grew into all things coffee, tea and bees.
Our raw honey is 100% raw and gently harvested by from hives located in Narrowsburg, New York and the Upper Delaware River region of the Catskill Mountains. We never blend or pasteurized our honey in order to retain all it's delicious flavor and nutrients. Our loose leafs teas are carefully selected from the best tea merchants around the globe and pair perfectly with our honey. 2 Queens coffee is micro roasted in small batches with fair trade and organic coffee beans from the best sources, our blends are bold, delicious and distinct.
In 2016 we launched a small line of natural cosmetics and handmade soaps, all made with 2 Queens raw honey, bee propolis and beeswax. Honey has been used for centuries to heal, revive and soothe skin and all of our products are formulated with natural ingredients and gently enough for all skin types.
