Without the pollination efforts from our honeybees and other native pollinators, our apple and pumpkin crops wouldn’t be possible. The bees also produce great tasting honey! The hives are located in the northwest corner of our property. You can check them out if heading out our north exit, but keep your distance and be careful. Our hives are hard at work making!

Our Store Manager Rachel Coventry, a third-generation Curtis family member, learned beekeeping from her maternal grandfather, Curtis Orchard founder, Paul Curtis. Through her efforts and his legacy, our honey has won back-to-back awards from the Center for Honeybee Research. In 2015 it was awarded the top prize for the region, and most recently, it won the 2016 international grand prize.
