Bees and Honey

For the past eight years we have been raising bees using traditional methods that do not rely on chemicals to treat the bees. We raise our own queens and constantly look for more natural methods to manage bees.DSCN1838

 Our honey is extracted throughout the summer and comes straight from the hive to you. We don’t hire out our bees and we don’t heat or pasteurize our honey. Signup on our mailing list we’ll let you know when fresh honey is available - it usually sells out quickly. beekeeping_20060520_0021

If you’re touring the farm be sure to check out the apiary, it’s usually buzzing with activity.

2015 End of Season - We had some nice summer and early fall harvests and the honey was dark and very flavorful. Going into winter, we will never be certain how many hives will survive, but a quick health check tells us that many hives are heavy with honey stores and the queens are still laying eggs during the end of October which is a good sign at this time of year.

Our honey is available in 1 lb. glass jars and 12 oz Honey Bears with Drip Proof topdave_bees_in_orchard.
