About Us

Bastin Honey Bee Farm is a family owned and operated business that began in 2008. Like most beekeepers, something about the world of the honey bee piqued our interest, and we started with one hive. From there, we grew a few hives a year until we really got “the bug”, and then decided to go large scale. What was once a small-time hobby has quickly flourished into a way of life for our family. We are now a multi-faceted company working to provide beekeeping supplies, honey bees, honey products, and pollination services in Indiana and across the Midwest.

What Customers Are Saying

These guys are the best! Not only are they local business people providing a great line of products at good prices, they are also very knowledgeable about bees. They have been helpful, generous and very fair. You might find something for a buck cheaper online, but you can’t beat their support both before and after the sale. Their mobile store has been a great asset to our club and has become a feature of our monthly meetings.

I absolutely love these folks. So very knowledgeable and helpful. Their class inspired me and their love for bees and to help others keeps me hopeful. I’m very blessed to have met this family and done business with them. Anytime I need help, they are quick to respond. They are always willing to sit down for however amount of time to answer any questions you have. If you’re interested in beekeeping, please go see them! 🐝💛
