A true taste of place is created by the hard working bees of Barters Island, and their exceptional honey is the perfect accompaniment to some of our favorite Maine shellfish recipes. Denny and Donna Denniston started Barters Island Bees with 3 hives in 2020 and they now have hives all around the east side of the island. The Denniston’s and their neighbors on the island are committed to providing
the bees with the healthiest environment possible…one without harmful pesticides, lots of wildflowers and all the protections that we, as humans, can provide. In addition to their beloved honey, the company produces an equally popular Maine Mousse, a creamed honey butter Donna created which is infused with Blueberry-Lemon, Cinnamon and Ginger.
