When you support organic beekeepers, you support the earth. We depend on honeybees to pollinate thirty percent of the food we eat. By taking the upmost care of our bees it helps support our ecosystem and mother nature. What you do matters, and we thank you for your care.
It is important to us to keep our planet clean and strong for future generations. We do our best by using...
Additional Customer Benefits Include...
Our happy honeybees live on 18 beautiful, chemical-free acres of fruit trees, wildflower, herbs and clover. It is our belief that all honey is not created equal. Most honey you find today is one of a few things; it is either pasteurized which removes all of its nutritional benefits, chemically treated (enough said) or the bees were fed sugar instead of allowing them to draw nectar from the plants blooming seasonally. We do things differently. We use organic beekeeping leaving the bees to do just as nature intended thus producing raw, unprocessed honey straight from the hive to the bottle left with all the natural goodness and nutrients the bees were smart enough to put into it and generous enough to allow us to have some of the surplus without ever harming the hives in any way.
In addition to the bees, we raise a couple of older and very silly Angora goats and CVM/Romedale sheep who are more like big, lovable family dogs than farm animals. We use their fiber to make our 100% Felted Wool Dryer Balls, in return treating them to their favorite snacks of banana peels, acorns, Christmas trees, and the earbuds they occasionally find in our pockets.
In search of all things natural, we formulated our own all natural, environmentally friendly Lavender Laundry Soap. It is gentle enough for the most sensitive skin, yet strong enough to tackle the toughest stains. Just requiring one small scoop per load and getting up to 100 loads per jar, our laundry soap is more cost efficient than conventional brands and leaves your clothes soft, bright and always clean without the use of synthetic chemicals or fillers.
What's clean clothes without a clean body to go in them? We recommend trying our handmade, all natural goat's milk and beeswax bar soap for a rich and creamy, skin nourishing treatment. It smells so good, it's soap you WANT to wash your mouth out with.
Mike Wargo is our beekeeper, goat wrangler and sheep farmer. After graduating from Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C., Mike decided to come back to Ohio to farm and start Brighton Wool & Honey Co.
Maggie Osborn, a true southerner, also an Appalachian State grad, creates the recipes and formulas for all our soaps and cleaning products. Six years later, she is still learning to adjust to Ohio's temperatures.
When not at the farm, these two can be found manning Brighton Wool & Honey Co.'s booths at various farmers' markets and craft shows around Northeast Ohio.
