Hidden Spring Apiaries, LLC is a local family-run apiary based in Stevens, PA that was founded in 2019. Our company is operated on a few simple ideas:
Make it CLEAN. Our raw honey is 100% treatment free - we never use foreign chemicals in our hives.
Make it TASTY. Our honey is never heated or filtered, preserving its natural flavor, pollen content, and enzymes.
Make it PURE. Unlike many large producers, our honey is never diluted with other sweeteners or otherwise mixed to decrease costs.
Make it QUALITY. We never cut corners when it comes to our honey. The honey we sell is the absolute highest quality we can make.
Make it LOCAL. Each of our bottles of honey is labeled with the ZIP code where the beehive is located. No imports, mixes, or transportation of hives - just pure, tasty honey.
