Meet the Star Thrower Farm Bees
Star Thrower Farm Honey Bees
The Star Thrower Farm apiary is home to thousands of honeybees. We operate a “Bee Safe” farm and use no herbicides or pesticides. Our bees produce enough honey that we are able to extract a little for our customers. All colonies are busy pollinating our herbs, vegetables, fruits, flowers each spring.

Fun honey bee facts
- Out of 20,000 species of bees, only 4 make honey. Honey bees are the only bees that die after they sting and they sting only when they feel their hive, queen and/or honey are threatened.
- A typical beehive can make up to 60 – 90 pounds of honey per season.
- Through a process called “pollination,” honeybees are responsible for approximately 80% of all fruit, vegetable and seed crops in the U.S.
