Our Hive Philosophy
We produce pure honey from hives maintained in what we call a “natural” process. Many beekeepers, especially the larger commercial outfits, treat their colonies with chemicals to retard pests and diseases. There is a trend toward non-chemical beekeeping, but we do need to keep our bees healthy. So here is what we do; we use a method of keeping healthy bees by using things that naturally exist in hives and honey, as opposed to hard synthetic chemicals. Honey is a simple sugar, but contains a complex array of naturally occurring “chemicals” that exist in the surrounding environment. We use those natural ingredients, added to the hive to augment the amounts that occur naturally. We will be happy to discuss exactly what we use to keep our bees healthy.
