In 2008, a grandfather by the name of Jim started to keep bees to help his grandson with allergies. Jim began raising bees as a way to provide raw, local honey to his family. His daughter, Michelene, soon followed the buzz and joined him in insect husbandry. As our experience and hives grew, we wanted to share this knowledge and the importance of bees to our everyday life.
Jim began holding ‘Honey Parties’ during the honey harvests as a way to share the workload. Everyone we knew was thrilled to attend! Honey parties serve to share the science behind bee colonies, the dangers bees face in today’s world, and (of course) to share the bounty of delicious honey.
We are happy to begin offering our Honey Parties and educational presentation(s) to the public. Please check the "Honey Parties" tab above if you would like to attend one of our harvest festivities.
Would you like to have bees of your own but don’t know where to start? If so then please check out the tab above "Can I be a beekeeper?"
If you're interested in an educational presentation for your group or school please contact us at BeefuddledFarms@gmail.com.
This is our first website building experience so please bee patient and feel free to offer feedback for improvement.
Beefuddled Farms specializes in the production and harvest of local raw honey. Raw honey, by definition, is not pasteurized in any way, at any time, to maintain the natural taste, nutritional value, and health benefits of the honey. Raw honey should never be given to children under the age of 1. Individuals with a compromised immune system should not consume raw honey without first consulting with their doctor.
