Bees and Honey

For the past ten 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.

2017 Wrap Up - The wet, mild summer left the hives somewhat light and the fall nectar flow of goldenrod and asters was ok but not enough for a surplus.  We sold all our summer honey in a matter of weeks.  Looking forward to 2018 with much anticipation.

Our honey is seasonally available in 1 lb. glass jars and 12 oz Honey Bears with Drip Proof topdave_bees_in_orchard.  Sorry, pickup from farm only, no shipping.
