Bees for Sale and Beekeeping Supplies in Rhode Island

Situated in the New England region of the U.S., Rhode Island is the 7th least populous state although its state capital Providence is the most populous city in the historic state. Nicknamed “The Ocean State” because of its large bays and inlets, in 1776 the Colony of Rhode Island became the first of the Thirteen Colonies to renounce its allegiance to the British Crown and was the last of the original states to ratify the Constitution. There is no shortage of history here with its many historic mansions in the seaside city of Newport, including The Breakers, Marble House, and Belcourt Castle. With historic landmarks and beautiful shores, there is certainly a lot to love about this breathtaking state. That is also why beekeeping has been a mainstay in Rhode Island for over 100 years. We support beekeepers by supplying package bees for sale, as well as beekeeping supplies for your backyard beehive or commercial beekeeping business.

At Mountain Sweet Honey Company, we are committed to offering customers our high-quality honeybees, beekeeping supplies, and stellar customer service. Our apiaries are in the beautiful northeast Georgia mountains, and we ship bees each week from mid-March to May. Whether you’re an experienced beekeeper or new to the world of bees, we have all the beekeeping supplies you will ever need.

About us

Once an at-home hobby, Mountain Sweet Honey transformed into a full-time business rather quickly. As the demand for local honey was cultivated, so did our hive collection. After celebrating our second year in business, we began selling honeybees and beekeeping items. One thing that never changed, however, was our focus to always provide chemical-free bees.

We firmly believe in our mission to offer quality bees and beekeeping supplies, sound advice to beekeepers, and to complete our orders with excellent customer service every time.

Mountain Sweet Honey Company became the #1 shipper of honey bees on the East Coast and the Midwest in 2017. Our growth over time can be attributed to loyal returning customers, our understanding of the logistics of shipping honeybees, and our diligent employees who have helped make this all 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.

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