Bees for Sale and Beekeeping Supplies in Iowa

Bordered by the Mississippi River to the east and the Missouri River to the west, Iowa is the 30th most populous of the 50 U.S. states. Located in the heart of the Midwest, Iowa’s capital and largest city by population is Des Moines. On top of being the state’s political and economic hub with the Iowa State Capitol downtown, the Hawkeye State is also home to the famous Iowa State Fair, where they have the largest butter cow each year. Iowa has also been listed as one of the safest states to live in. As you can see, there are many reasons the business of beekeeping has been thriving in Iowa since the early 1900’s.

About us

Mountain Sweet Honey Company started out as a pastime prior to it blossoming into a full-time business. Because there was a larger demand for local honey, the supply grew as did our amount of hives. Following our one-year anniversary, we began to sell honeybees and some beekeeping items. Since day one, our biggest emphasis has been about providing chemical-free bees.

We all strongly believe in our goals to offer high-quality bees, high-quality beekeeping supplies, informative advice to beekeepers, and to always execute our orders with outstanding customer service.

Being the #1 shipper of honey bees in the Midwest and East Coast in 2017 is something we want to always aim for. Throughout the years we have grown steadily, which is mostly thanks to our loyal customers, our understanding of the logistics of shipping honeybees, and hard-working employees who helped make this all a dream come true.

If you’re a beginning beekeeper, or just interested in learning more about what it takes to be a beekeeper, contact us today at (706) 886-1322 and our customer service representative will assist you.

We are located at 758 Georgia Highway 184, Toccoa, GA 30577.
