Evergreen Honey Company

Evergreen Honey Co. Inc. is a family owned  24,000 Hive honeybee farm based in central Louisiana. Our goal is to grow nucleus hives for our own honey honey production and pollination needs as well as for sale "nucs" to beekeepers around the country. We also provide the winter locations and care our 8,000 colony sister farm, Merrimack Valley Apiaries Inc. of Billerica MA and Otto NY.
We grow our for sale nucs as we grow our own, because for us they are interchangeable.  The breeder stock we utilized and produce is among the best available in the U.S. today
