We are a small, but growing, family-owned natural apiary with a passion for honey bees and their survival. When we were first introduced to honey bees in 2018, we saw it as a way to produce natural honey for our family. We quickly learned how important honey bees are to human survival and began working steadily to do our part. We now have 40 active hives and are able to source unpasteurized honey and pure beeswax from the bees. Our beekeeper, Glenn, works hard to keep the bees healthy and viable and to make sure they continue growing. In the past few years, we've won 1st and 2nd place ribbons for our pure honey and natural comb honey at the Juniata, Gratz and Dillsburg Fairs.
Our daughter, Kimberly creates natural, handmade candles, soaps, beeswax lotions and lip balms. We'd love to share our passion for honey bees, and what they create, with you.
Our beekeeper, Glenn, explains the extraction process for our natural honey.
We strain, not filter, to remove the large pieces of wax, thus maintaining the natural integrity of the honey.
You can see the droplets of pure honey accumulate on the side of the extractor.
Bottling is the final step before our pure honey comes to your home.
