Bucks County Apiaries - Promoting Healthy Bees, One Hive at a Time


Add passionate beekeeper to Chuck Pressler’s already impressive resume including chief and executive director of Central Bucks Ambulance and Rescue Unit; film and television actor; and all around “community service guy,” always willing to lend a hand.

Chuck’s passion for beekeeping grew from wondering why honey production wasn't a significantly larger part of agriculture in Bucks County. Three years ago he saw an opportunity to bring his beekeeping passion to our local community and established Bucks County Apiaries. Chuck has also personally experienced the health benefits of local raw honey. An intense sufferer of seasonal allergies for years, the first year he kept bees he also learned about the healing properties of honey. He consumed the local raw honey throughout the winter. Spring arrived, but not the allergies. Completely eliminated.

Something you might not know: Bucks County farmed honey has only one annual harvest time, June and July. As the demand for local honey increases, additional colonies need to be built. Currently Bucks County Apiaries has 32 colonies spanning four farm locations: Bedminster, Ottsville, Plumsteadville, and Carversville. Each location offers a different color, consistency, and flavor to the honey.

Bucks County Apiaries honey is "hive to table" which means the honey is not heated or processed in any way. “It is as fresh from the hive as you can get. I extract the honey from the comb, pass it through a screen, and put in containers. That is it, nothing more or less.” Because there are four different colony locations, the colors, clarity and flavors change with the blooms, which in turn also provides a wonderful variety of taste. You have two upcoming opportunities to meet Chuck: he is one of the panelists in the June 11 Co-op sponsored film, Queen of the Sun, at the County Theater, and as our eco-system partner of the month Chuck will be at the Co-op on Saturday, June 13, from 10:30 – 12:30 where you can sample his honey.

    Chuck I have a big bee hive in my back yard with swarms of bees alarming my neighbors. My husband called a exterminator to come out on Friday 4/21/17 8am . I am not happy !!!! I don’t want the bees harmed.. Is there anyone that can help me relocate the bees to another destination without being harmed. Thanks.
