For a few years we ran our own apiary but we quickly discovered that the bees needed the most attention just when all our time was taken up with other duties. Trying to maintain ten hives in prime condition was just too much. The hobby is on the back burner for now but you can still buy honey from us, provided by other local producers.
Did you know that locally grown honey is best for you, because it’s produced by bees from the plants growing in the area in which you live and therefore contain the immune stimulating properties needed for your body to adapt to its environment.

The fascinating process of making honey begins when the bees feast on flowers, collecting the flower nectar in their mouths. This nectar then mixes with special enzymes in the bees’ saliva, an alchemical process that turns it into honey. The bees carry the honey back to the hive where they deposit it into the cells of the hive’s walls. The fluttering of their wings provides the necessary ventilation to reduce the moisture content making it ready for consumption.
