About Us / Des Moines Honey Group History: Iowa honey, beeswax, lip balm, wood conditioner
My daughter won a youth beekeeping scholarship from our state's honey producers. Once she got busy being a high school upperclassman and then a college student, I inherited her bees.
I keep beehives in backyards throughout Polk and Dallas counties. I pull and process each frame of honey myself, then pour it as space and time allow. I sell my surplus. Once my surplus is gone, I network with other bee keepers (called the Des Moines Honey Group) to keep a local honey supply available to you. I have visited a few of these other bee yards, and trust me, they are very local.
