Our Story

Honey Buckets apiary has been laundering honey since 2015 and we have been in the red ever since. We collect more stings than honey, but our honey is some of the best in New England. Come by and give it a try.

Witness the eerily beautiful growth of larvae into bees in this time-lapse video from photographer Anand Varma. Varma said the six-month project gave him a new respect for the meticulous job of beekeeping.

Investment Opportunity in

Honey Buckets Apiary

This is your opportunity to invest in NH’s finest honey, brought to you by NH’s worst beekeeper. In my short tenure as a beekeeper I’ve managed to raise and unwittingly kill hundreds of thousands of bees (Thank goodness I’m not a dairy farmer). The hive deaths are not entirely my fault—climate change (thanks, Obama) and varroa mites are having a big impact on bees across New England.

 

I can’t give up now though—I’ve thrown away more money on beekeeping than I have on any of my other vices. And so, here is your opportunity to invest in my little apiary so I can continue to grow — purchase a 25% equity stake in the apiary and you get the naming rights. Current name suggestions: Buzzkill Apiary, Honey Laundering, Bees of Burden and Free Bees.

 

But seriously, we keep bees because we love to keep bees. Honey is just a by-product we are happy to bring to you. Buying a jar of honey from Honey Buckets allows us to keep more bees, and keep making more honey. Thanks for your support!

There is only one real reason to keep bees, and that is because they are fascinating. If you just want honey, make friends with a beekeeper.
