The Bee House is a type of Artisan Equipment used to make Honey in Stardew Valley. To make honey, place a Bee House on the farm and wait for ≈4 days. A Bee House is the reward for completing the Bundle Orange.png Fall Crops Bundle in the Pantry.

Bee houses can be placed inside the Greenhouse, but will not produce honey there.

Placing a flower within proper range of a Bee House will produce flower honey, which always sells for more than flowerless Wild Honey. Some flowers (i.e., Crocus, Sunflower, and Sweet Pea) do not influence the sell price of honey.

If a Bee House has produced flower honey, but the flower is harvested before the honey, the honey will become "Wild Honey." Similarly, if a Bee House is removed with a tool while it has flower honey ready for harvesting, the honey will go into inventory as "Wild Honey."

Flower zone indicator for modified Honey.

With the exception of Crocus, Sunflower, and Sweet Pea, the Bee House can produce unique types of honey when it is in range of a blooming flower (within 5 tiles horizontally, 4 tiles vertically-a diamond shaped area). When there is more than one type of flower within range, the closest flower takes priority. At equal distance, the most expensive flower takes priority.
