We are a family of Registered Florida Beekeepers. Our hives are inspected annually by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Division of Plant Industry for Best Management Practices. We are located in North Lakeland and do honey production, bee rescues, limited crop pollination as well as presentations to educate students in our local schools on the importance of the survival of the honey bees and the role that they play in the pollination of crops to sustain our food chain.
We are members of both the Ridge Beekeepers Association which meets in Bartow, FL and the Tampa Bay Beekeepers Association who meet in Seffner, FL.
Our honey is all local and unprocessed. Unprocessed honey provides more flavor and nutrition than processed honey which is pasteurized, much of the time “watered down” with corn syrup or sugar water, ultra-filtered and often comes from unknown sources.
Stop by our booth at the Lakeland Downtown Farmers Curb Market on Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and taste our honey. The variety of honey flavors we have depends on the types of plants the bees have visited and pollinated, the season, the weather etc. We do not add anything to our honey for flavor, color, consistency or for a claimed medicinal value. Our honey is 100% natural, just like the bees bring it to us.
