Adam Ebert handles our queen bees out of his location in Mount Vernon, Iowa.


In the spring, queens are brought in from Koehnen & Sons out of California for sale. Adam begins raising his own Iowa queens once the weather becomes favorable for queen rearing. The Iowa queens are often started in June.


Ebert Queens - Ebert's Queen Bees are raised in our Cedar Rapids location by Adam Ebert. You can place orders at EbertQueens.com.

Building the Business:

Phil Ebert began Ebert Honey in 1980 with only about ten colonies, and they sat in the backyard of his Fairfield home. At that time, one five gallon bucket of honey seemed like a large amount. Once the honey was bottled, it was mainly sold out of the house.

Although keeping bees began as a hobby, the amount of time and money committed to making honey gradually increased over the years.

Today, Ebert Honey maintains nearly 600 hives which produced 90,000 pounds of honey in 2005. Processing and bottling takes place in a steel building erected in 1996 to house the expanding business.

Today, the vast majority of Ebert Honey is sold in Central Iowa grocery stores and bakeries. Additional revenue is derived from pollination services in orchards.

Why buy Ebert Honey?

Ebert Honey is entirely unadulterated. The finished product is exactly the same as when the bees first made it. Our honey is not forced through pressure filters so we can process it with very little heat. This better preserves the natural enzymes and flavor.
