Dear loyal customers and friends,

As you may know, after 20 years in business, Jean-Claude has decided to retire and sell his business. First, we would like to thank you, from the bottom or our hearts, for your loyalty all those years. Not only have we built strong business relationships but also many friendships along the way. Thanks to you, from consigning in Califon in 2002 to the wide network of current retailers and customers, we have grown a sustainable business and we are incredibly grateful. We will certainly miss you.

The good news is that we found a great successor who will take care of you the way we did. They will carry our products on top of theirs and will provide you with continued outstanding service and of course they will take good care of the bees.  Like us, they are a family business/farm located in Chester. Their local reputation is stellar and they will take over our business as of September 15. Their name is Sweet Cheeks Farm and Apiary – your contact is Allison Tolpa - 908 809 0202 – [email protected] .This is how they describe their business: “We are a 16 acre privately owned family farm in beautiful Chester, NJ. We have a passion for rescuing animals, homesteading, beekeeping, food, photography, art, music and anything nature. We hope what inspires us may inspire you.” As you can see, you will be in good hands. They will carry our name until the end of the year for a smooth and easy transition. Please welcome them among your vendors the way you welcomed us.

In the meantime, to facilitate the transition, we will close our business as of September 12, 2020. Moreover, starting September 21st, please direct your order or any questions you may have to Sweet Cheeks Farm and Apiary.  In the meantime, we will soon be heading south (VA) and smell the roses…...



Jean-Claude & Bea
