Welcome to Bee Haven! Bee Haven is a home based family business with a passion for providing naturally healthy products (or gifts) from the hives to our customers. After being inspired by the novel “The Secret Life of Bees”, but knowing absolutely nothing about keeping bees, Samantha and her mother dared to buy two hives in 2005. Several years and many bee stings later they now maintain many hives. They currently have “City Bees” and “Country Bees”.
Their city hives are tucked away in the hills of the Cincinnati area, while the country hives are up river with friends and family in Clermont County. The bees work hard to gather nature’s bounty to produce honey, wax, pollen and propolis and we use all of these gifts from the bees to produce a wonderful assortment of all natural products including 100% beeswax candles, soothing hand salves, lip balms, and beeswax lanterns. You can purchase most of their products online or they would love to have you stop by our shop at Findlay Market in Cincinnati, Ohio where you may find one of us – Scott, Samantha or one of our three daughters.
“The only reason for making a buzzing-noise that I know of is because you’re a bee…The only reason for being a bee that I know of is making honey….and the only reason for making honey is so I can eat it.” – Winnie the Pooh in A.A. Milne’s ‘The House at Pooh Corner’
