SERVICES

Assisting new and fellow beekeepers, capturing swarms, assembling woodenware, extracting honey, and teaching classes on occasion are some of our services. As we're able, we also make salves and balms, lotion bars, candles, and who-knows-what else!
HONEY

The honey comes from hives set up in several different locations. Since we can't place orders with the bees for particular types of honey, we don't know all that we'll have until we have it! Current honey types available include Alfalfa, Buckwheat, Clover, Wildflower, and creamed honey - plain, cinnamon, lemon, and orange.

We also now have honey butter!

 
 
 





 
Comb is sometimes available for minimal extra charge.
 
We ship, too; however, we won't know the cost of the shipping until we have your address and can weigh your order at the post office. All packages are shipped priority.

NOTE: Cost of materials continue to escalate; consequently, prices for woodenware must be adjusted accordingly. We apologize for the inconvenience, but please contact us for current prices. When costs settle down (or even SLOW down), then ours can, too. Regardless of the cost, however, our prices remain competitive, and the workmanship is unbeatable!
