a beekeeper's hobby...

He's all kilted and ready to throw heavy objects (not including myself).

a kind note from a beekeeper's wife:

Please reconsider before using pesticides in your yard... pesticides => thousands of dead bees => no honey to share with others => one disappointed beekeeper.

A fall update on our bees, honey production and upcoming products will be forthcoming! Prices and availability of products are currently being revised. Please note this when visiting the site. THANKS!

The bees here at McCarty Apiaries have wasted NO time this spring and have upped their honey production from previous years. We plan to extract the spring honey soon. It is a lighter honey, in color, and is sweeter in taste than the honey extracted in the fall.

We will soon be taking orders for honey...stay tuned!

Spring is a much-welcomed season in our household. The bees start buzzing with more activity, as do WE in our household.

Much-needed sorting, cleaning and preparing is currently occurring at McCarty Apiaries. We lost a hive this winter, but we are currently awaiting the arrival of a new one to accompany our remaining two. We hope to have a great year.

Production of products will resume soon...STAY TUNED!
