Hilbert’s Honey Co. is a 4th generation honey producer located in beautiful Northern Michigan.

Hilbert's family business owners Geana and Larry.

The family business began back in 1887 by James Hilbert Sr. on the Leelanau peninsula, Elmwood Township, to encourage the pollination of his fruit farms. Over the years, the passion of beekeeping was passed on through each generation and has grown into a major bee hub with well over 10,000 bee colonies.

In August 2019, Hilbert’s Honey Co. expanded by opening a 10,400 square foot building located on Five Mile Road in Traverse City, Michigan, to house the machinery for extraction and production of honey products. 


The Hilbert family invites you to visit our little county store located at 3555 5 Mile Road, Traverse City, MI 49686.  Our hours are Monday - Friday 10AM - 4PM.  Winter snowstorm hours may vary, so calling ahead is a good idea.

Hilbert's Honey Co. is currently owned and operated by Larry and Geana Hilbert, along with their son Keith.
