Apiary/ honey, candles, soap, maple syrup
Brookfield Bees is a small apiary located in Brookfield, VT. Our hives are located on our own property as well as on the properties of several neighboring farms. An observation hive in the barn makes it easy for visitors to watch the bees at work.
In addition to raw and cut comb honey, we make soap, lip balm, shea butter skin therapy and candles from the products of our hives. In the fall, in conjunction with several neighbors, we collect apples from trees in the neighborhood that we cut, grind and press into fresh cider. We use a portion of our cider to make Boiled Apple Cider Syrup, a product with the consistency of maple syrup and a strong taste of apple. We now have our own maple syrup operation as well.
Activities available for visitors: Soap and Candle Making, Honey Extraction, Observation hive, and for the very brave, up close and personal visits with the bees.
Visits with the bees, together with explanations of beekeeping
Hours Available: By appointment only
