I also make pure beeswax candles using the extra beeswax that is a natural by-product of our honey extraction. We are committed to using no chemicals in our beekeeping practices, and have not experienced colony collapse disorder with our hives. Our honey is harvested seasonally in order to bring out the distinct flavors and aromas of the floral source. We live in the Ohio countryside and enjoy working on our little hobby farm with our four young children, pet goats, cats, dog, and chickens.. We hope to share our natural products with those who appreciate the simple things in life, and love to educate others about the gentle honeybee and her gifts.
