Hand-crafted, 100% raw and unprocessed, our artisanal honey is purely natural. It is extracted from the hives, passed through a sieve, and put into jars with little to no transition from its original state inside the hive.
This minimal processing preserves the phytonutrients found in raw honey that offer a multitude of health benefits like antioxidant properties and prebiotics, as well as antibacterial and antifungal power.
We harvest only the excess honey beyond what our hives need to survive.
Our honey is Certified Naturally Grown (CNG). We follow CNG's beekeeping guidelines that support honeybee health, steering away from harmful chemical treatments and toward natural practices that result in thriving colonies and happy bees.
Pine Ridge Apiaries' promise:
NO GMO crops or pesticides used on or near our hives
NO feeding of high fructose corn syrup
NO commercial transporting of beehives
NO use of synthetic chemicals for treating bee health
We are a small, family-run business located in an isolated valley of the biodiverse Pine Ridge region of northwest Nebraska. Our prairie is home to over 25 native and naturalized plant species from which the bees forage for nectar and pollen.
As ardent supporters of sustainable agriculture and protecting the environment, we follow holistic practices to maintain healthy landscapes for the entire ecosystem.
We offer hive establishment assistance by providing healthy nucleus colonies ("nucs") for purchase.
