Our history goes back to the 1920s, when Esra Barkman chose beekeeping as his passionate life’s work.
During WWII, Esra began selling honey from his home in Hillsboro, Kansas, when sugar was rationed.
In 1960, Esra and his son, Richard, decided to make bees and honey their official business and founded Barkman Honey.
Today, Barkman Honey thrives as a beekeeper-owned, family company. We are bee people through and through, committed to making ethically sourced honey and advocating for the health and sustainability of bees.
