Phil Ebert began Ebert Honey in 1980 with only about ten colonies in the backyard of his Fairfield, Iowa home. At the time, one five gallon bucket of honey seemed like a large amount. Once the honey was bottled, it was mainly sold from the house. What started out as a hobby later grew into a family business.
Today, Ebert Honey is located in Lynnville, Iowa and maintains about 1,000 beehives.
“Our beehives are set across the Iowa countryside. Most of the beehives are only 35-40 miles away from home."
