Authentic beekeeping with a focus on community
Local honey & queen bees
Fricks Apiaries was established in 2003 to provide a source of local, raw honey and beeswax products for customers in Chapel Hill, NC and surrounding regions. We produce and sell raw, unfiltered honey from honeybees that forage across Orange, Chatham, and Alamance Counties, NC.
We also sell open-mated NC-raised queen bees from locally adapted stock. Our queens are typically available April through September each year.
We offer professional honeybee pollination services to farmers from February through September.
Guy and Ingrid Fricks founded Fricks Apiaries in 2003.
Fricks Apiaries is a small, family-run farm in Chapel Hill, NC.
In addition to honey, we also sell a variety of natural hive products:
100% beeswax candles
nourishing lip balms
