Nestled in the forested hills of north-central West Virginia, isolated from commercial mono-crop agriculture are a number of mountain meadows dotted with bee hives owned and operated by the Staddon family.
When you purchase honey or other beehive products, you need to know that it is all it ought to be. We sell honey: the whole honey, and nothing but the honey; pure, local, raw, unfiltered, USA honey. We also offer pollen, beeswax, propolis, and royal jelly when it is available.
We use locally adapted honey bee stock and raise our bees naturally. After repeated tests, we have found our colonies free of chalkbrood, foulbrood, and nosema. We sell nucleus colonies for local pick-up and queens raised from our most vigorous, productive, gentle, untreated mother colonies.
We host farm tours for school groups and families.
The Principle Operator at Honey Glen is Michael Staddon, president of the North Central West Virginia Beekeepers Association and a certified beekeeper in the West Virginia Master Beekeeper Program. He has been active in beekeeper education since 2007.
We view our labor in agriculture as a stewardship of God's creation and view the health of plants, animals, and people as functioning according to His design. We see great value in using modern capabilities without violating this original intent. Our bees are registered with the state of West Virginia and regularly inspected.
Pure, local, raw, unfiltered, USA honey and other beehive products. Local varietal honeys that may be available from time to time include Tulip Poplar, Blackberry Blossom, Autumn Olive ["Honeysuckle"], and Locust Tree.
