Join us Sunday, May 5th from 10:00am – 1:00pm as we celebrate, love and honor all that you do and all that you are!
We will start the day with an outdoor, gentle yoga practice lead by Rebekah of Bee Inspired Yoga. This will be an all levels class, perfect for beginners! Following yoga, we will head into the barn where we will make and apply our own honey face masks. As the mask is working its magic, we will paint rocks (no experience required) and Jennifer Roth of Gaia Dawn Studios will be here sharing some uplifting words of self-love and empowerment. Jenn is a best selling author, photographer, yoga instructor, and life coach!
Next, we will enjoy a delicious Farm to Table lunch catered by Java Dog Coffee and Tea using fresh produce provided by Sorbello Farms, CSA!
After lunch, we will create our own herbal tea blends and bath salts to take home.
Space is limited so that we can create an intimate and relaxing atmosphere. There is nothing a mother deserves more than time away from her normal routine, so why not treat your mom (or yourself!) and spend a few relaxing hours with us!

We are excited to reveal the new logo for our honey and beeswax products! Although we loved our old logo, we decided it was time for an update. With the new logo release, we would like to share with you the story of how our business was started.
My husband and I first started beekeeping as a hobby in 2012. As our children were getting older and with new free time, I decided to enroll in my first yoga class. One day in the yoga class the subject of honey came up as the instructor was talking about how difficult it was to find local honey for his allergies. My son also suffered from terrible seasonal allergies and the idea of having my own bees to produce honey came to mind. Together with my husband, we completed a beekeeping course and purchased our first hive.
The first year that we were able to harvest honey, we gave it to friends and family who loved it. Since it was such a big hit, I decided to enter our honey in the state honey show. To enter it into the contest, I had to have a label and a name. We decided to name it “Frog Ocean Honey” since we live on Frog Ocean Road and our bees are kept on our property. Because the idea came to me while I was at yoga, I wanted the label to have a frog in a zen pose. We entered the contest and ended up winning first place in the NJ State Honey Show that year. The demand for our honey grew. We purchased more hives and thus, our business was born.
In the past six years of beekeeping, it has become less about harvesting honey and more about connecting with nature. This inspired our new logo to have more of an earthy, marsh feel representing the area in which we live, and an updated version of our iconic zen frog. We hope you love it as much as we do!
As our business continues to grow and change we remain inspired by nature.
Looking for a fun day out with the family? Come experience “A Day at the Farm” on June 4th from 11am-3pm at the Church Landing Farm Museum in Pennsville! There will be plenty to see and do. Frog Ocean Honey will have an observation hive for you to see the bees at work and maybe even catch sight of the Queen! We will also be selling honey and other hive-related products, and would love to talk bees with you. We hope to see you there.
We are very excited to announce that we will be having regular hours at the Barn, located at 99 Frog Ocean Road in Lower Alloway’s Creek Township, starting this summer! More details and store hours will be available as we get closer to the first honey harvest of the season. We look forward to seeing you at the Barn!
We would like to sincerely thank everyone for another great season! Thank you to our new and returning customers, and to everyone who voted us “Best of Salem County – locally harvested honey”.
Although the temperatures have been warm, our bees are ready for winter. Personally, we are ready for winter too! We are probably in the minority….but it’s December. We would rather see snow than rain this time of the year! Old Man Winter is right around the corner, and before we know it, we will be wishing for warmer temperatures, spring flowers, and bees buzzing around the farm! Until then, we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year!
We hope every one is enjoying the end of the summer! Please take the time to vote for local businesses in this years “Best of Salem County”. Voting has already started and will be open until September 18th. Click the
