Beekeeper with Honeycomb

The Buzzing Place to Bee

Local. Fair. Sustainable.  As a responsible, eco-friendly business, we’re committed to keeping bees in their natural habitat in a local and sustainable way.

It’s what we don’t do that makes our honey, the absolute best honey. Our honey is unchanged, unspoiled, and unadulterated – completely natural, pure raw honey.

Check out the rest of our site to learn about our initiatives and our products.

Online ordering for package bees & nucs is sold out for the 2024 season.  Queens are available.  If you need bees, please text 484-678-1938 to ask what's available.
