Family owned and operated since 1978, Kutik's Everything Bees, located in Oxford, NY began with two bee hives Chuck Kutik received as a Christmas present. As his apiary grew, Chuck soon recognized the difficulty of wintering bees in upstate New York.
In 1978 he moved 30 colonies to South Carolina for the winter, thus joining a unique fraternity of Northeastern migratory beekeepers. Each spring many of the hives are brought back to New York for apple crop pollination in the Lake Ontario orchard belt, then to honey production locations in the Mohawk Valley region. In 2001, Chuck began pollination services for cantaloupes, watermelons, cucumbers and squash in South Carolina.
The extraction and bottling operation was begun in 1979. Here we believe nature knows best. Our honey is only heated enough to pump and strain, not to the temperatures commonly used in supermarket honey. The result is a full-bodied taste, preserving all the God-given and healthful properties of nature's oldest sweetener.
Our mission is to honor God’s sweetest creation, the honey bee. By honoring the bee, we are able to provide the best honey, foster ideal colony health, and give our customer time-tested advice. With over 40 years of experience, a vast network of fellow beekeepers world wide, and a close relationship with Cornell's Dyce labs, we at Kutik's renew our commitment to the honey bee daily.
