HoneyApple Hill is a modest apiary operation located in central New York. Our hives are situated among fields of goldenrod and acres of private woodlots. Our bees take advantage of a floral landscape comprised of maple, apples, cherries, clover, blackberries, asters, goldenrod, black locust, knotweed, milkweed and more.
