- Sweet Willy's Honey
- Sinking Spring
- PA, 19608
Sweet Willy’s is locally harvested, raw honey that began in a typical backyard setting. Growing up on a farm, I was always fascinated with honeybees. As mini “harvesters” of the land, I found it was amazing to watch them communicate with one another all for the common goal of building a successful hive. It was my curiosity in the habits of bees that led me into beekeeping.
I started as a beekeeper several years ago with two hives in my backyard in Sinking Spring, PA. I observed other local beekeepers and had moderate expectations for my own hives the first year. I hoped to harvest enough honey to provide my family with a taste of this new hobby I had taken on. After harvesting several pounds during the first year, it didn’t take long for this hobby to become an obsession.
Overtime, the two hives I started with have grown into many that I maintain in multiple locations in the Berks/Lancaster county areas. This past year, I harvested nearly 400 lbs. of honey from just three of my hives. Sweet Willy’s has become a staple in our household - just one taste and it will be part of yours as well!
