About us

We understand that beekeeping may start out as a hobby and can quickly turn into a lifestyle – and even a full-time business. Mountain Sweet Honey Company began this way. The demand for local honey grew and as the demand grew, so did the number of our hives. In our second year of business, we began to sell honey bees and a few beekeeping items. Our focus has always been to provide chemical free bees.

We strongly believe in our purpose, which is to offer high-quality bees and beekeeping supplies, knowledgeable advice to beekeepers, and to always execute our orders with outstanding customer service. Mountain Sweet Honey Company became the #1 shipper of honey bees in the mid-west and East Coast in 2017. Our growth over the years has been largely due to loyal repeat customers, our understanding of the logistics of shipping honey bees, and our dedicated employees who helped make this growth possible.

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.
