Welcome to Monkey's Pocket Apiary

Special Notice to our Customers regarding the current COVID19 Pandemic: We are OPEN to serve you. Please respect social distancing rules,  wear a mask, do not bring groups of people, and remain home if you are ill.  Feel free to call us with any questions.


We are a family owned and operated apiary in Fairfield, CT.  Our mission is to offer the highest quality products and services to our community while doing our small part to save the environment. We specialize in swarm retrieval and removal, hive set-up and colony management, consultations and much more. We sell pure raw honey harvested from our own hives.

Check out all our products and services! 


  

Our usual spring and summer hours are between 9 and 6 during the week and 10 to 6 on the weekends. However, the apiary is also our home so sometimes we both need to leave the premises together for appointments or shopping. To be sure we are here to help you,  call Kathy at 203-371-4657  for honey & candle sales or Chris at 203-371-6448  for bee questions, wooden ware, swarm retrieval, or colony evaluations and maintenance. Another good indicator is whether we have the Local Honey sign out at the end of our driveway near the street (although sometimes we are home and available even when the sign isn't out). 

We realize this is different from a usual retail situation, but we would love to meet you and show you our honey selections or talk 'bees'. So, thanks for your patience and flexibility : )

Chris and Kathy
