Honeybee Sanctuary in the Woodlands of Maine

Our Lakeside Apiary in Maine

Our ForestBeehive apiary is on the shores of this secluded serene forest lake in Maine, far removed from agro-industrial pollution.  Across the lake is a 3,000 acres’ Wildlife sanctuary. We are pesticide-free.

Our local bee colonies and beehives are not subjected to any treatments with human-engineered chemicals or any acids or oils. We never feed sugar to honeybees: there’s not enough nutrients in sugar and natural honey has a much higher acidity than sugar.

Pristine woodlands around our apiary provide our bees with rich Spring-to-Fall foraging resources. We only harvest surplus honey in the Fall, leaving enough honey for the bees to survive harsh New England winters.

The Right Natural Habitat: clean unpolluted land and water, forests and meadows providing the bees with rich natural Spring-to-Fall nectar/pollen resources.

Bees need vitamins, protein and micro-nutrients from nectar, honey and pollen. Sugar only has carbs and compared to honey is less acidic, adversely affecting the bees’ microbiome. Besides, if you feed sugar…you can only get a generic ‘honey’ as opposed to real honey!

Never use any treatments with human-engineered chemicals, antibiotics, or any acids or oils. Neither for the bees nor for the beehives. If you use treatments, you interfere with the bees’ natural selection mechanisms and create treatment-resistant strains of parasites.


Conventional Beekeepers Treat Honeybees with Human-engineered Chemicals, Acids or Oils, Adversely Affecting the Bees’ and the Honey. See Studies…
Our Maine Wilderness Honey

Maine Wilderness Honey  – an ode to nature!

We harvest only surplus honey and only once per year – in the Fall when the honey has matured and the bees’ enzymes had enough time to work their magic.  

Our Maine Wilderness Honey is a rich, fragrant and yet delicately balanced golden amber honey with beautiful plum and apricot undertones.

One unexpected post-tasting quote: “I don’t know about 40 virgins in Heaven, but if they don’t have honey like this one, I am not going!”
