About Wild Mountain Apiaries

Wild Mountain Apiaries is a locally owned bee farm located near Mars Hill in Madison County, NC. In 2013 we opened a new retail location at 425 Weaverville Highway in Asheville, NC. We offer assorted raw varietal honeys which vary from year to year but may include tulip poplar, black locust, blackberry blossom, basswood, and sourwood. Often the first three end up mixed and are bottled as spring wildflower. Basswood and sourwood bloom later usually allowing us to separate these prized varietals. We produce herbal infused honeys, honey spreads, propolis, pure beeswax, beeswax candles, and other value added bee products. We also offer locally raised and acclimated bees and queens, honeybee removal services, pollination services to farmers, a complete line of beekeeping supplies, and hands-on beekeeping workshops. Our bees are managed without the use of hard chemical pest control agents and generous attention is given to the health of our apiaries in an effort to produce healthy bees and healthy products for you. We are now also offering regional honey in bulk by the gallon and 5 gallon pail. Please drop by our store or look for us seasonally at the North Asheville Tailgate Market Saturdays on the UNCA campus.
