We are cultivating awareness about local apiaries & local farmers and their kinship with pollinators, such as the Tennessee state insect – the honey bee. 

By bringing Tennessee beekeepers and farmers together, the TNHF creates relationships and stronger connections between apiaries, local farmers, and families. From our own farm & hive – to yours, let’s rediscover the sweetness of living off the land together.

The Tennessee Honey Festival would not exist without the support and presence of our beloved beekeepers, apiaries, honey vendors, farmers & producers,
