Bee Hollow Farm is a family owned and operated sustainable apiary. We use only organic practices to raise northern acclimated Carniolan honey bees. We produce a variety of liquid raw and creamed honey as well as other apiary products including fresh pollen, beeswax candles, and all natural lip balm. Bee Hollow Farm also raises queen bees and nucleus colonies to support the local beekeepers and beekeeping industry.
For us, sustainability is profitability. By focusing on the health and welfare of our bees as our top priority, they live happier, healthier more productive lives, which in return enhances everything we do. One challenge our farm faces is locating safe, natural environments to host our honey bee colonies. The practice of chemical spraying and the use of neonicotinoid pesticide-coated seeds pose a great danger to our bees and all pollinators. For this reason, our bees are placed in the safest environments we can find throughout Columbia and Rensselaer counties, as well as throughout the Capital Region. The safety and health of our honey bees is always our first priority.
Beyond the pure deliciousness of raw honey, the pure health and nutritional benefits continue to amaze us as more and more research uncovers the benefits of raw honey. Here at Bee Hollow Farm, it is very rewarding to hear comments from many of our regular customers who tell us how consuming our honey has greatly enhanced their lives as they deal with environmental allergies. In addition to our honey, you can always find organic, free-range eggs in our refrigerator. We much prefer the taste and understand the health benefits of organic eggs. We take pride in caring for not only our bees but also our customers.
