How to Get More Honey in Valheim (& What It’s For)

Honey is a valuable resource for making meads in Valheim. Players can create a honey farm at their base to have unlimited supply.

To regenerate health and stamina and resist poison and frost Valheim, players will need to brew potions, called Meads. Mead is a honey-based alcohol most commonly attributed to the Vikings. In Valheim, players can cultivate a honey farm and have a near constant supply of honey for their meads. Bring in honey Valheim is not a simple task. Players must break beehives inside abandoned houses, but they will have to be careful not to poison themselves by hitting him. When they break a beehive, they will be rewarded with honey and a queen bee, which can be used to start a hive at the player’s base. Honey itself is useful as a food, but it is most useful when made into a base of mead.

Players can make a beehive at their base for their queen bee to start having honey at home. As they find more beehives in the desert and collect more queens, they can start a honey farm. However, it is not enough to just start a farm. Players also need to make sure to keep their bees happy if they want a constant supply of honey to make mead with. Here’s how to build a honey farm in Valheim and keep the bees happy.

A player grows honey in Valheim

As players explore and encounter an abandoned house, they can hear a slight hum coming from inside. This is a sign that there is a beehive nearby. Players can try to tangle the beehive, but it’s difficult to do so without getting poisoned by bee stings. It is better to try to remove it with a bow and arrows. Players will receive some honey and possibly a queen bee for their troubles.

Once the queen bee has fallen, players will unlock the recipe for making a beehive. This requires 10 antlers and 1 queen bee. Players will need to make their beehive on the workbench and place it in the open at their base with at least two meters of space around it on all sides, just like they do when planting seeds. It may take a while for other bees to arrive, so players can instead prioritize other activities while they wait. Bees usually produce 1 or 2 honey per day as long as they have their space.

Each hive can generate up to 4 honey, but the process takes a long time. Players may want to place multiple beehives at their base, allowing them to harvest more honey at once. They’ll just need to go out into the world and find more active hives. Beehives typically spawn in abandoned houses in Meadow, Black Forest, and Swamp biomes.

Players can craft a Cauldron and a Fermenter to start crafting mead. They will have to combine honey and fruits, vegetables and other fodder consumables and cook them in a base of mead. Then the mead base will need to go into a fermenter for 2 days in-game. Each mead base requires about 10 honey and will yield 6 meads.
