Chikabee Farm

Chikabee Farm Seasonally available, unprocessed honey. All natural methods, no antibiotics or chemicals used. Contact for details. Believing that knowing where goods come from and what goes into them also includes knowing who provides the goods; I started a small farm to try and spread this belief.

The honey is from hives kept here on the farm. No antibiotics are used and I try to interfere with the animals as little as possible so people can enjoy what Nature intends. Our fresh, local honey is available at Southern Tier Hardware near Eldridge Park.

This is why you wear a suit, especially when pulling honey.  The ladies (bees) get a bit upset.

A visitor to our hives last year.
We’ve heard there is a Momma bear and Cubs in the area this year. We had to do repairs to a section of electric fence around the hives. I wonder if it was Momma bear.

Want to tell everyone these almost 7 years of being an official business have been interesting,educational and fun. That being said, they must come to an end. In the next two weeks I will be drawing down supplies of honey products,the hens have been signaling for some time that supply just cannot realistically meet demand and I have been unable to break into other venues. I really would like to thank Jim and the guys at Southern Tier hardware for giving me all the help they have...and thank you to everyone who has stopped in and been great customers. To those with outstanding orders I will get them filled soon. While the official farm will be downsized I still have supplies left to do some custom orders....again thank you to be everyone and please let local be your first choice.

Eggs Eggs Eggs!!!! Not ever enough! Talking with local store owners and feed suppliers this seems to be a common problem currently and best guesses point to the weather.
