Bees and Honey
Our bees are local and home grown right here in Central Illinois. We started out with a small group of three hives and have grown from there. Our bees, as I like to refer to them, are our super mutts. They are a mixed gene pool from our breeder queens of Carniolan/Italian mix, VSH, Purdue Mite Bitterse, and Minnesota Hygienic. They overwinter very well and are good survivor stock. They are the heart and soul of our operation and supply us with great honey, multiply well and are bred to be as gentle as possible.
Overwinter Nucs - SOLD OUTThis Year's Nucs - $175.00We have deep and medium nucs. Our nucs are five frames of bees, brood, and honey. You will need to bring your own box to transport them in. If you need a transport box, we will supply one for $12.00. If you like, we will take you through your nuc and show you the queen, laying pattern, brood, and honey to make sure it is up to your standards. If you don't like it, we will get you another one. We aim to please.
Honey per lb. - $5.00Comb Honey per lb. - $9.00Our honey is pure raw honey. It is chemical free as we do not use any chemicals in our hives. Our honey has never been heated and has only been ran through a screen. In this manner, it retains all of its natural pollen and enzymes that are local and can be beneficial to your health. It may help with your pollen allergies and strengthen your immune system. What could be better than something sweet and is also good for you!
