Welcome to Ohio Honey Company, Wellhausen Apiaries LLC
We keep honeybees at various farms and nurseries throughout Lake, Geauga, Ashtabula and Portage Counties in Northeast Ohio. Our honeybees are very happy and well cared for. Yes, we love our honeybees!
If you have heard that eating local honey will help relieve the symptoms of seasonal allergies, you have heard correctly. By eating honey that the honeybees made from the pollens to which you are allergic....the honey will help you build up an immunity to those symptoms. Its as if Mother Nature thinks of everything!
Be sure to come and visit us at the following Farmer’s Markets:
NUFM – Shaker Square
NUFM – Downtown Chagrin Falls
Our honey is also available at
Willoughby Outdoor Market
Painesville Farmer’s Market
LOCAL HONEY and ALLERGIES
If you suffer from seasonal allergies, consider adding a little local honey to your prevention regimen. The theory is that, as with allergy shots, daily exposure to a small amount of an allergen can desensitize the body, allowing you to better resist it. The allergen culprit is pollen —the very same ingredient bees use to make their honey. Honey is also an immune-system booster.
The practice of eating honey for this purpose doesn't have much research to its credit. But some holistic practitioners have seen a drop in symptoms as a result of prescribing it to patients. Eat one teaspoon daily of raw honey – and be sure to get the honey from a beekeeper! Store-bought honey will simply NOT do the trick!
Never give honey to babies 12 months or younger, because of the risk of botulism infection.
Just to give you a bit of background, we own and maintain honeybee colonies at various farms throughout Lake, Geauga, Ashtabula and Portage Counties. Our honeybees do a fine job of pollinating for these farms, which produce a bounty of vegetables, fruits and plants. Our Honey is harvested the old-fashioned way, with no artificial heat, as pasteurizing honey removes most of the nutrients that Mother Nature intended. Don't forget, when you eat raw honey made by Ohio Honey Company bees, you will be happy and healthy!
