Willie’s Honey Company is a small business run by my Wife Rachel and I (Wil) . We are located around Northern Illinois in the Lake/Mchenry counties area. We strive to provide high quality hive products, bees and learning opportunities at an affordable price.
I started beekeeping when I was 13 by finding a book at the Library and have been hooked ever since. I went on and got a degree in environmental ecology and wetland ecosystems. In addition I am currently serving as the vice president of the Lake County Beekeepers Association.
I believe that all agricultural practices should leave the land and the animals better than it started out. Following this train of thought we don't use any chemical treatments on our hives and select stock from winter hardy and disease resistant survivor stock. Many of our hives and components are built from dumpster dived lumber, paint, and nails.
Bees are an important part of the ecosystem and all of our lives. All swarm and
structure removal of honeybees we do live capture and re-home to our
apiaries. Many of these feral bees become an important part in our program to breed
hardy bees for our area.
