Welcome to Millers Homestead the providers of beekeeping equipment and fine natural honey.
We are open and doing business.
It is now the end of July. Normally the honey flow would be just about over.
This year, there is very little honey flow. In checking my hives, they are just surviving.
The only ones that have any growth are in locations where there is water. And then very little Honey.
In visiting with Commerical Beekeepers they are finding the same results. Honey flow will be a quarter compared to other years.
As of this posting we will not sell any honey greater than quarts.
The maximum per customer will be two quarts.
We need to make it last until August 2022.
Thank you and enjoy the wounderful world of beekeeping.

Welcome to the wonderful world of beekeeping.
There is a great deal of pride that comes from managing the care of beneficial insects that provide more fruit and vegetables due to their pollination.
The honey bees also create a product that contains a wide variety of several essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids as well as antioxidents.
Natural honey is good for you inside the body and out. Its composition makes it useful for treating minor burns and scrapes.
Please note: While it is great for older children and adults, pediatricians advise against feeding honey to infants less than one year old.
