Local honey bees are in trouble and could use your help. Please click on the Honey Bee Restoration Project (HRP)™ link and check out the options offered by this unique honey bee and habitat restoration project. Follow the link for Pesticide Watch to stay abreast of the effects of modern pesticides on our local pollinators.
* Raw honey is not heated and only lightly strained to preserve it’s natural goodness and inherent health benefits.
We will be closed for inventory and maintenance June 30th-July 4th, September 8-12 and December 22th-Jan 2nd.
Americans consume about 400 million pounds of honey per year. Domestic beekeepers only produce about 150 million pounds. What does this mean? ~62% of the honey you consume is imported! Check your Labels!
If you don’t know your beekeeper, you don't know what is in your honey!

Considered a weed by many, this plant is an excellent source of nectar and pollen for honey bees. Do them a favor and don't eradicate it from your lawn.
One hive on one acre of clover can produce 100 pounds of surplus honey in a marginal year. In a good year that hive can produce 300 pounds of surplus honey.
