Gene Beane, was a beekeeper who started this business in the early 1980's. He bought honey from his beekeeper friends and maple syrup from a friend who owned a maple camp in Maryland. In 1994, after 4 years of being a counselor and social worker to at-risk kids and foster children, I was presented with the opportunity to take over his business. A lot of his same customers continue as my customers to this day. I'm grateful for this opportunity that Mr. Beane gave me to travel, contribute to great businesses and build my own business that has allowed me and my family to flourish.
My mission has been to build great long-term relationships with my beekeepers, distributors and customers in order to bring wonderful products and valuable services at the best prices. In addition, my mission is to bring these products and services by the most environmentally mindful means possible and to educate customers on honeybee and pollinator health issues.
