What started out as a hobby, instantly turned into an intense respect and passion for the honey bee. From the time I opened my first hive, to building my first apiary and then expanding to my first out apiary, the honey bee still amazes me. It became clear to me early on that the honey bee does not need us rather we need the honey bee. At Lakeview Apiary, it will always be considered a privilege to have such dedicated and amazing workers as the honey bee.
With hives set up in various locations in NW New Jersey and the primary apiary in Lake Hopatcong, there is a very large variety of wildflowers and trees available throughout spring and summer for the bees to gather from. Although a slight variation in flavor from year to year, the varied nectar creates some of the most pleasant tasting honey available in the area. This honey is delivered from our hives to your table.
