Welcome to Millers Homestead the providers of beekeeping equipment and fine natural honey.
We are open and doing business.
However, things have changed because of the current health problems.
Current Changes are:
1. Everyone will be required to wear a mask at Millers Homestead.
2. Because of our current health, Age, we can't allow you to enter the buildings at Millers Homestead.
3. Curbside service will be conducted. You can leave your vehicle and walk around but must observe the six-foot rule.
4. Call to set up an appointment before traveling to Millers Homestead.
This is the hardest change of all. It is not a question of face masks and distances;
it is question of how do we make sure we are not infected as well as our customers.
We care and want this problem to go away.
The changes are:
1. The current schedule for extraction has been changed.
2. The only people allowed in the honey house are the Millers.
3. If you are currently scheduled please call and confirm the dates
and time you will be dropping off your honey supers.
4. Several days before scheduled time please confirm the date and
time you will be dropping off your honey supers.
5. Once you have left the honey supers, we will extract the honey.
6. The following procedure will be followed:
a. Call Millers and confirm your reservation date and time
for dropping of the honey supers.
b. You will supply the five-gallon buckets to store your honey in.
OR you can purchase them from us.
c. Leave a contact phone number and e-mail address with your honey.
d. Once we have extracted the honey, and it has been placed in your
buckets, we will contact you and a pick up date and time will be agreed upon.
e. The price for extracting honey this year is $0.30 per pound with
minimumn charge of $30.00, whichever is the highest.
If you chose not to have Millers extract your honey this year, we understand.
However, please contact us so we don't sit around waiting on you to call.
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.
