We are proud to offer mite resistant, winter hardy, gentle honey bees.

A Queen that has been overwintered in OHIO has proven herself to be able to survive the winter here in northeast Ohio.
Our mite counts in the fall of 2018 were at zero because of the VSH trait in these bees. We have also found that both the VSH line and the Saskatraz line overwinters well in Ohio and builds up fast in the spring for a great honey crop.

About our Bees
At Hartville Honey Bee Farm it’s all about the honey bees. Like all living creatures, bees need expert care to thrive. At Hartville Honey, raising strong, healthy bees is our top priority. We raise VSH-Italian, and Saskatraz Queens and bees in the heart of Northeastern Ohio.
We offer the best food source for the bees by planting fields of sweet clover and a variety of other clovers. It's the sweet clover nector that makes our honey even sweeter than other wildflower honey. Honey is the product of happy, healthy bees and the most delicious honey comes from hives surrounded by abundant flowering plants, the bees' natural food source. By surrounding our bees with a sea of sweet clover, our bees make some of the best honey you'll ever taste.
We don't use any unnatural chemicals or pesticides in our beehives and we never use any antibiotics.
