WELCOME TO THE WONDERS OF SUSTAINABLY WORKING WITH HONEY BEES

In the summer of 2007 a friend was looking for a home for a couple of honey bee colonies and we decided to help out. The rest has been an adventure into the world of our beloved apis mellifera.

We currently keep around 16 full sized colonies supported by several small nucleus colonies to sustainably harvest natural raw honey, propolis, pollen and wax in accordance with the certified naturally grown best practices. We take great pleasure in rescuing any swarms and unwanted honey bee colonies you may have on your property in south/central Maine. We also enjoy mentoring new beekeepers and sell many natural products of the hive and colonies of honey bees.

Mother Nature has helped our honey bees thrive with excellent forage. In return, they have provided our neighbors with tons of pollenization and a wealth of surplus light spring honey and dark summer honey.
