DeVries Bees

The DeVries Bees have a special corner in our backyard where they work hard making good things for us.


When the bees are doing well, we have honey to share. We know the importance of raw honey so our honey is extracted using a centrifuge process with zero heat.

Did you know that some other producers will still label honey as "raw" even though they heat it up some to make processing easier? We do not. Our honey is totally unheated!

Honey can vary in color and taste by what the bees were gathering nectar from, so it changes from season to season and year to year. We call ours wildflower honey because we do not know exactly what the bees were collecting. They can travel up to 2 miles.


Dan is experimenting to find the best way to make our beeswax into useable portions. He is trying to develop a solar melter.
