The Honey Exchange is a family business. Phil and Meghan Gaven and daughters Maura and Caitlin opened the store in the summer of 2011.
It started with a single hive
They started keeping a single hive in 2008 on a whim. Over the next several years their enthusiasm grew as they mentored new beekeepers, did presentations at local schools, took classes and kept reading about and studying honeybees.
And grew into a business idea
They wanted to have a store that expressed their admiration for everything honeybees do for the planet. They are a central place where beekeepers can extract their honey conveniently, and buy the equipment they need for their apiaries. At the same time they recognize that managing a hive of bees isn’t for everyone. Their store gives everyone an opportunity to learn about honeybees, safely see the workings of the bees in their observation hive, and support local beekeepers who sell their honey and beeswax products.
