    Celebrate National Honeybee Day

    In honor of our favorite pollinator, The Valley Hive will once again host its annual Honey Competition & Recipe Contest to celebrate National Honeybee Day on Sunday, August 12th from 4-7pm! Everyone is invited to attend and sample backyard honey from beekeepers all over Los Angeles and taste dishes made with honey.


    Come hungry and ready to party! Food and alcohol - made with our signature honey varieties- will be available for purchase.  Check out some local vendors and participate in crafts and activities for kids and adults alike. Check this page for more details to come.

    Backyard Beekeepers

    Show off your backyard honey by entering our honey competition and you may win the Grand Prize (which will be announced soon) and the esteem of Southern California beekeepers. Bring two  8oz jars of honey (an unlabeled jar and a labeled jar) to The Valley Hive by August 11th. The winner will be announced by the end of the day on August 12th. If you have questions about your submission, send us an email at 

    Cooking with Honey

    The Honey Chiffon Cake pictured above took home the grand prize in last year's recipe contest. The honey crumble topping was the winning touch that set this "sweet" dessert apart from all others. If you have a favorite honey recipe that you'd like to share, bring it to our event by 3:30pm on Sunday, August 12th.

    How to Enter

    To enter the honey competition/recipe contest, send an email to and we will send you an entry form. Participating in the contest is simple, and anyone can enter. If you would like to enter your backyard honey, bring two 8oz jars -- one labeled, one unlabeled -- to our shop before August 12th. No honey to share, but you'd like to be involved?  Cook or bake a honey dish and bring it to us by 11am on the day of the event. Before the event, our esteemed panel of judges will taste the entries and choose the winners.  Each labeled jar of honey will be raffled off and the proceeds will be donated to bee charity chosen by The Valley Hive.
