Honey and Honey Bees
We love our friendly little honey bees, and the honey that the work so hard to make. We now sell both honey and honey bees.
AlwaysSummerHerbs is participating with other bee breeders to raise bees that do not require chemical treatments. We have been awarded 3 grants from the US Department of Agriculture, by the Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Experiment (NESARE) grant program.
And in, 2012:
