We are a first generational, family run bee farm in the heart of Central Pennsylvania. Were proud to keep bees on small farms all across the Cumberland Valley and to work with several sustainability programs taught by local schools and colleges. Our bees are raised in Pennsylvania and handled with care solely by our very own, Greg Hildebrand.


Gregs beekeeping services include mentoring, beekeeping classes, nucleus sales, honey extraction services, queen rearing and hive inspections. He is always happy to answer simple questions about your bees via email. 


Our honey and other apiary products can be purchased through our website and in several local retailers. For a full list, please see below. We regularly attend the Dillsburg Farmers Market and Farmers on the Square in Carlisle. Our honey is featured in the menus of various restaurants, bakeries and coffee shops. If you are interested in local honey for your restaurant or in a collaboration, please email Tara at honeybeefriendly@gmail.com
