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.

In 2014, we harvested approximately 900lbs of the most delicious and beautiful honey that our bees have ever produced and hoping 2015 will be even better.


We’re CNG Certified!

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 pesticide and antibiotic free methods to treat common bee ailments. Our goal is to produce honey that is as pure and natural as possible while maintaining healthy colonies.

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.

Our apiary is licensed with and inspected by the Georgia Department of Agriculture. Rhett is a UGA Certified Beekeeper Southeast Region Director for the Georgia Beekeepers Association and Vice President of the Ogeechee Area Beekeepers Association [OABeeA].  In addition, Rhett is a Registered Food Safety Manager with the National Registry of Food Safety Professionals.

  1. This sounds great. Shelly and I would love to try our hand at this as well – maybe if we move somewhere where we have more land. I hope it goes well for you all. Keep your eyes on Christ!

    • LOL. My daughter loved painting it. My wife helped her just a little too. If you think about it, 99.99% of the hive occupants are female, so they’ll probably appreciate the paint job.
