We started this adventure in 2012 (in Aroostook County Maine) and branded our Honey as AROOSTOOK VALLEY HONEY FARM, which we still use on all of our labels, although our internet name is MaineBees.com, will serve us in the future as it may be easier to connect with us using the internet and may be a better identifier for our product as from Maine.
A lot of our Honey is sold wholesale to other beekeepers and stores, but our sales to small farm stands, local stores in Aroostook County and natural food outlets in Maine has exploded since 2015.
Typically we ship in 5 gallon food grade buckets, by the pallet, or single buckets.
Our Honey is never heated or processed in any way. This preserves its natural healing agents and good taste that we strive for. Our hives and bees are located on private farm properties in Aroostook County, Maine. The bees are geographically spread over 300 square miles of pristine wilderness in which they are free to roam and pollinate.
We are a small company in Northern Maine, bordering New Brunswick, Canada. We are in a very rural and peaceful place on this planet—Fort Fairfield, Maine. Our population is a little over three thousand; our people are amongst the friendliest you will ever find.
