Welcome to my small bee farm nestled in the foothills of upstate South Carolina near Pickens. Carolina Honeybees was created from my dream to become a beekeeper. I have always been fascinated by the art of Beekeeping. After starting small with 1 hive, my apiary grew larger. The years of beekeeping have been a life-changing experience.
My journey has been filled with successes and failures. But here I am, years later, helping new beekeepers worldwide and sharing my story. Visit my blog for beekeeping tips, or my online store to purchase premium artisan honey & beeswax candles. Beekeeping is a not an event it is a journey, Join me.
My hives are managed with much care and in great consideration for the health of my bees. Only surplus honey is harvested from the hives. Leaving sufficient honey stores for the bees to utilize is a corner-stone of sustainable beekeeping. For pest control, soft methods are the treatment of choice
To promote sustainable management, I use other gifts from the hive to create pure, natural beeswax candles, lip balm and Goatmilk & Honey Soap. All items are made by hand in small batches. My artisan products are available in limited quantities each year. All creations are focused on quality not quantity.
A big thank you to my many regular customers and blog readers – I appreciate your support.
