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!
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 what we'll have until we have it! Current honey types available: Alfalfa, Blackberry/Clover, Blueberry, Clover, and Wildflower. We also have a limited amount of Sourwood.
Prices are currently as follows:
Pound - $8
2 for $15
3 for $20
Pound - $10
Creamed Honey (plain or cinnamon):
Half-pint - $7
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.
