Ames Farm is nationally recognized for producing single source honey. Each jar of our honey has the location, hive number, and floral source printed on the label, making it unique and specific to a time and place in Minnesota.

As the largest comb honey producer in Minnesota, we are proud to keep alive the art of comb honey production. From building the wood frames of wax sheets and knowing when and what hives to put them on, this annual tradition separates us from other beekeepers who don't have the time, bees or skill to make it all come together.
A long day was recently spent in the honey lab sampling dozens of pails of Single Source Honey for our curated Ames Farm Brewers & Distillers Varietal Honey Inventory. This collection of honey has been selected from our reserves for the discriminate mead maker, brewer and distiller.
I feel like I have painted myself into a corner of artisanal honey production that no one else has tried to duplicate, because of the slow and tedious process of extracting one super of honey at a time! Read how this unique approach to producing honey evolved and why its special.
