Hardwood Honey began in 2012 with a single hive at one location. Eight years later Ross Harding manages 26 bee yards throughout Central Indiana.

Ross became enamored with honey due to its healing powers, unique flavor profiles, and the fact honey never spoils. While managing the apiaries Ross began to forage wild herbs and foods. 

The knowledge that Ross has acquired is from the countless relationships created with beekeepers (commercial, sideliner and hobbyist), academics (Purdue University), farmers, and the Beekeepers of Indiana.

To grow the hive count Ross has saved beehives from extermination at numerous locations. Swarm catching has also added to the hive count.
