Skin Care

Welcome to the Internet home of MeadowRidge Bee Farm! We are a small apiary in central Illinois located in the Mackinaw River Dells between Bloomington and Peoria. 

Here you can purchase pure honey, soaps and skin care products containing honey or beeswax, beeswax candles, and other goodies such as honey dippers and bee-themed handmade wood items. 

We hope you’ll browse our pages to learn some interesting facts about bees and honey, follow our progress through the year, and try some new recipes using honey.

And 10% of your purchase helps support the young beekeepers at Salem4Youth ranch in Flanagan, Illinois, furthering beekeeping in the younger generation and promoting bee awareness. It’s a Win-Win!


At the present time, MeadowRidge Bee Farm products are only available online and at specific vendor markets. Check out our Events Calendar to see where you can find us in person.

Advantages to purchasing at vendor markets:

1)  No pictures and descriptions can replace physically seeing, touching, tasting, and smelling our products. Come see us to check out the samples.

2)  No shipping charges or need to arrange pick-up or delivery. Take your purchases home with you, or order customization if available.

3)  Sales tax is included in the item price. To simplify the checkout process, we include sales tax in our items at vendor markets. For your convenience, we accept cash and credit card (via Square).

4)  We love to meet our customers! We hope that in meeting you and giving you personal attention we are able to build a trusting relationship.

Makers Markets at Destihl are always a good time and we are really excited to be a part of their first ever FARMERS MARKET Sunday, June 13, 10:00-3:00. We will be debuting Beeswax Wraps and new lip balm flavors, as well bringing our honey, soaps, beard balms, and body butters. Come out and see what your local farmers have for you. As always, the Beer Hall opens at 10:00 for a delicious brunch and drinks. Bring your friends and make a day of it! 
See you there!
