Big River Honey coming to Endeavor Property in Jackson County

Tupelo honey is a southern favorite, and a honey processor and harvester — Big River Honey — is coming to Jackson County.

“So, they produce tupelo honey, raw tupelo honey, as well as other products you can create from honey like skin care products, etc.,” Vice President of Business Development Zach Gilmore said.

The company is originally from Wewahitchka, but will be making its way to Jackson County soon.

Big River Honey will be renting a building on the Endeavor Property from the county, and officials hope this will spur even more growth on the property.
