Waupaca's Dancing Bear Honey
Since 1976 when our beekeeper Kent was just 16 years old, we've offered pure, raw, unfiltered honey straight from our own bees to your table!
We are a small family-owned beekeeping farm in central Wisconsin. For over 40 years, we've been taking the greatest care in producing and harvesting our local raw honey (we also offer orange blossom and buckwheat honey from a couple of trusted beekeeper friends).
Carefully bottling our honey for sale exclusively at Main Street Marketplace (our store in Downtown Waupaca) and our online store, we ensure every jar of honey is in perfect condition right up to handing it over to you.
We place our hives in woodland areas so our bees can collect nectar from naturally growing wildflowers. By keeping our hives away from large agricultural areas, we help our bees stay healthy, keeping their honey pure and clean.
Our honey is never heated warmer than a beehive. We never filter our honey (only lightly straining it to remove beeswax particles).
We handle our honey from hive to bottle, keeping a rich, fulfilling taste with all the nutritious benefits. Pure honey has vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes. All the flavor and healthful things that bees work so hard to put into the honey are still there. What could be more natural?
We'd love for you to try our comb honey, which is our favorite bee product to produce. Owner and beekeeper Kent Pegorsch likes to say "Comb honey really is the only raw honey. It is the best tasting honey and it is beautiful. If I only did one thing with my bees, it would be comb honey."
Kent is not the only one who loves comb honey, and we think you'll be surprised if you try it!
"I put some comb honey on a cracker with some blue cheese and holy jumpin' Moses was it ever good. I did not expect that combination to work, but it was crazy with flavor like nothing I've tasted before."
