National Honey Month is a celebratory and promotional event held annually during the month of September. Its purpose is to promote US beekeeping, the beekeeping industry and honey as a natural and beneficial sweetener.

The awareness month was initiated by The National Honey Board[1] (a US government established, USDA-overseen, organization)[2] in 1989.[3] September is significant for honey producers as it is the month that marks the end of the honey collection season for many beekeepers in the United States.
