The Kelley Honeybee Farm is a family operated apiary in Emanuel County, GA. We are located west of Metter, GA. on farmland that borders Jack’s Creek, a tributary of the Ohoopee River which is located just 3 miles to the south.
This year we harvested approximately 900lbs of the most delicious and beautiful honey that our bees have ever produced.
Our operation is licensed with and inspected by the Georgia Department of Agriculture. Our first inspection was on July 23, and all of our hives received a clean bill of health. We’re members of the Georgia Beekeepers Association and founding members of the Ogeechee Area Beekeepers Association [OABeeA]. In addition, Rhett is a Registered Food Safety Manager with the National Registry of Food Safety Professionals.
We are dedicated to Integrated Pest Management Techniques. This means that we avoid using pesticides and medications to treat our bees for pests and disease. Instead, we intend to use proven non-chemical methods to treat common bee ailments. Our goal is to produce honey that is pure and natural.
We are a Christian family and we teach our children at home. Our vision for this little enterprise is that it will be something we can do together as a family and that our children will learn the craft and pass the business on to future generations.
