This is the honey that started it all! Savannah Bee founder Ted Dennard learned beekeeping among the tupelo trees that grow the Georgia-Florida line, beginning a love story that continues to this day. With its distinct buttery flavor and golden green hue, Tupelo Honey remains one of the most sought-after honeys in the world. 

Tupelo honey is only produced in two tiny regions in the U.S.: The Okefenokee Swamp and the Apalachicola River Basin. 

Buttery undertones with a soft vanishing sweetness

Fade into a shot of the Tupelo swamp as upbeat music plays in the background. We see plants, a turtle sitting on a log, a bird flying out of a tree, and Ted Dennard wading through the swamp.

[Ted] speaks. “We are deep in the Tupelo Swamp right now.”

We see a yellow bird shake water off itself and a cardinal flying out of a tree.

[Ted] says, “It is an endangered ecosystem. It's where the beautiful white Tupelo trees grow and thrive and bloom.”

We see groups of white Tupelo trees in the swamp and close-ups of their leaves and flowers.

[Ted] says, “Surprisingly, this feels like home to me, because this is where I would bring my beehives to make Tupelo honey.”

[Ted] walks along the banks of the swamp, underneath the Tupelo trees. He smells the flowers of a tree.

He continues: “That soft, buttery, kind of sweet… You taste it further back on your tongue.”

[Ted] pours of a bit of Tupelo Honey onto his finger and smiles.

[Ted] says, “Bubble gummy yummy. When you taste it, you're like, man, this stuff is fantastic.”

Transition to a shot of the Tupelo tree flowers, then to [Ted] holding a branch of a Tupelo tree. We see him pulling a frame out of a beehive, then a close-up of the bees working.

He says, “You know, we've been able to help bring the honey that's made right here out into the world and popularize it.”

[Ted] holds up the bottle of Tupelo Honey. We see Tupelo Honey on the Savannah Bee Company shelves and a shot of the Tupelo tree leaves up close.

[Ted] speaks to the camera in the Tupelo swamp. “And let people just know how celebrated, how

awesome this often unharvested natural resource. Tupelo Honey — it’s the queen of the honey world.”
