At Half Crown Hill Orchard
|600 North Branch Rd
McDonald PA, 15057
We have our own bee hives for pollination
of our apple trees. These bees also provide
us with honey that we harvest ourselves.
This honey is also available for purchase at
our farm market. Try some, we are sure
you will enjoy it as much as we do.
For more information on honey as well as
recipes and tips follow the link to the
National Honey Board.
The Disappearing Honey Bee
Luckily our bees at Half Crown Hill have not
been affected by the recent disappearance
known as Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD).
As a precaution we have implemented the
use of an alternate pollinating bee known as
Blue Orchard Mason Bees. Click on the link
