Hillside Honey is a family and veteran owned bee farm located in Kansas. We offer not only local raw unfiltered honey but infused and creamed honey as well.  We small batch and hand make all of our lotion bars, lip balms, hand creams, salves, deodorants and other skin care products using beeswax from our own beehives. Our bees forage on wildflowers on pastures and lands along the Missouri River from Leavenworth, Kansas to Atchison, Kansas.

Current partner programs are listed below. 


Beekeeping Experience

 Daisy   Brownie   Junior   Cadette   Senior   Ambassador

​Hillside Honey Apiary offers a 1-2 hour look into what a beekeeper does, the importance of pollinators and the environment, and hands on experience where the Girl Scouts and adults will put on a bee suit and open a live hive with our beekeepers. Girl Scouts will be able to hold a live frame of bees and pictures are encouraged! We have bee suits sized from 5 year olds and up. We customize the tour based on the age group and the troop leader’s needs to support your focus.
