Meet the Powers! Terry and Dani Powers have been bringing their honey to our markets for over three years now, and have been producing honey for over seven years. Between their locations in Algiers and Belle Chasse, Louisiana, the Powers take care of a total of 150 hives from which they produce pure, raw, and unfiltered honey. Alongside their 100% natural honey, Powers Beekeepers produces comb honey, beeswax, pollen, propolis tinctures, and beeswax candles made in a variety of beautiful and unique molds. Interested in beekeeping yourself? The Powers also teach a beginners beekeeping class at Sugar Roots Farm and sell nucleus hives - a small but established colony that's perfect for kick-starting a new beehive.
A relatively new addition to Power’s product line-up, the Dani bar can now be found alongside their weekly array of honey products. Affectionately named after its inventor, the Dani bar is composed of jujubes, goji berries, raw honey as well as pecans, peanuts, and black sesame seeds. Stop by the Power’s table at any of our markets and grab yourself a delicious Dani bar.
