We began beekeeping 17 years ago with 3 bee hives. It started as a hobby but as we learned more about the importance of the honey bee, it soon grew to 18-22 hives. Soon we were harvesting and selling our honey at 2 Farmer's Markets and expanding our list of products. Our seven apiaries are all in the Hillsboro, DeSoto, Festus and Victoria areas. Their habitat includes backyard flora, rock glades and prairie grasses.
Our products include various sizes of local, raw honey as well as a few specialty items. We have our bear family containers- a 2 oz Baby bear, a 4 oz Mama bear and a 12 oz Papa bear. We also have a 16 oz no-drip bottle, pints, quarts and pints with honeycomb in them. One of our good sellers is boxes of honeycomb (1 # squares). We also have our creamed honey in 3 flavors-original, cinnamon and jalapeno. We do have blocks of beeswax for sale too.
