Helm Family Farms was established in May 2006. We have always raised cattle, but we decided to start beekeeping in 2009. We started with only two bee hives and we have steadily grown from there. We have expanded to 150 bee hives this year.
We have two daughters that are both active on the farm and help out when and where they can. We all have a bee suit so everyone stays protected while we work. We have multiple locations that we keep our bees including a local blueberry farm. It is our desire to produce an all-natural honey, encourage others to start bee keeping, supply bees and produce other beehive products.
We operate 150 bee hives and sell our local, raw honey. We also sell 5 frame nucs in the spring for others to start beekeeping or to grow their bee operations. With the wax from our hives, we produce all-natural lip balm in strawberry, coconut lemongrass, peppermint and mango scents. We also use the honey in our goat's milk and honey soap. Our soap in unscented; however, we do offer lavender vanilla and honey & shea scents.
