Expected ABSENT this week are: Loco Bueno, Kettle Korn, Sustainable Spoon, Homestead Ranch, Pain Wizard, Morning Fresh Dairy = iffy .

Whiteside Honey

Whiteside Hon ey

Mike and Dianne Whiteside have been a part of the beekeeping community for over 30 years. Here is a photo of Mike and his Dad from that time. Whiteside Honey has hives mostly on the west side of Loveland. Mike reports that he has had to bring in a "hotter" type of bee that can survive the onslaught of Varroa & Tracheal Mites that has devastated the bee industry in America. Look for them next to Miller Farms. Whiteside Honey brings delicious, RAW, LOCAL Honey !


We are proud members of the Colorado Farmers Market Association. We are also listed with Local Harvest.
