Chasing Honey Farm is a craft beekeeping and honey co-op located on 5-acres in the Catskill Mountain region of Upstate New York. We specialise in treatment-free beekeeping and manage the land according to organic principles.
The farm is a sloped meadow of native pasture with a stand of balsam fir trees and heritage cider apple orchard, outside the Village of Fleischmanns, just opposite Belleayre Mountain Ski Center.
Chasing Honey Farm sells annual co-op memberships and honey products online, in-person, and by word-of-mouth. We wholesale bulk honey and beeswax to nearby farm-to-table restaurants and crafters while retailing through premium farm stores and gift shops throughout the Catskills.
The honey season runs from mid-April, when plant pollination starts, until a late-September/early-October harvest, when the hives are full of honey and the bees prepare for winter. Proceeds from co-op membership and sales of honey products sustain the business and allow for phased expansion of the farm into other natural agricultural products categories.
Chasing Honey Farm is a full-service beekeeping outfit, research platform, and premium honey producer. Co-located at our boutique agricultural venture, Griffin Corners, we are also engaged in several Central Catskills economic revitalization efforts.
