1946- Our Story Begins

It all began with three hives of honey bees that Ralph Gamber bought at a Lancaster County auction for $27 in 1946. Ralph had suffered a heart attack in his early 30’s and upon the doctor’s advice, to find a hobby, he determined that keeping bees would be a great way to unwind after a stressful day at work. Ralph and his wife, Luella, who is allergic to bee stings, bottled their first honey crop in their kitchen that fall.
