The Bee House is a type of Artisan Equipment used to make Honey. To make honey, place a Bee House on the farm and wait for 3-4 days (see bug note below). A Bee House is the reward for completing the Fall Crops Bundle in the Pantry.
Bee houses can be placed indoors (e.g., in the Greenhouse) but will not produce honey there. Bee houses placed outside the farm will produce wild honey every 3-4 days (i.e., the Bus Stop, Pelican Town, The Beach, The Mountain, Railroad, Cindersap Forest, The Desert, and the Secret Woods). Bee houses must not be placed in a villager's path, or they will be destroyed.
Growing a flower within 5 tiles of a Bee House will produce flower honey, which always sells for more than flowerless Wild Honey. Some flowers (i.e., Crocus 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."
Flowers grown in Garden Pots will not cause Bee Houses to produce flower honey.

With the exception of Crocus and Sweet Pea, the Bee House can produce unique types of honey when it is within 5 tiles in any cardinal direction of a blooming flower. When there is more than one type of flower within range, the closest flower takes priority.
The time of day when a bee house is placed (or when an existing bee house is harvested) has a pronounced inverse effect on the processing time (similar to Tappers and Worm Bins). Every one hour delay in start time causes the bee house to be ready 40 minutes earlier (i.e., processing time is reduced by 100 minutes). Some specific values are provided in the table below. All bee houses placed during the same hour (e.g., 7:00 to 7:50 am) will be done at the same time; the 40 minute jump happens at the start of a new hour (e.g., 8:00 am).
|Start Time||Ready At||Total Processing Time|
|Day 1, 7:00 am||Day 5, 6:00 am||6020 mins|
|Day 1, 10:00 am||Day 4, 1:20 am||5720 mins|
|Day 1, 10:00 pm||Day 4, 5:20 pm||4520 mins|
|Day 1, 1:00 am||Day 4, 3:20 pm||4220 mins|
