Bee Friendly at Easton

Working alongside the Central Ohio Beekeepers Association, we're working to increase the local honeybee population.

At Easton, we understand the importance of our responsibility to the environment and being a sustainable partner in our community. We are committed to using our property to inspire and implement solutions that preserve, protect, and improve our environment.

We’re focused on three objectives: protecting pollinators, preserving natural habitats, and improving the environment. And, as part of our efforts to protect pollinators, pollinator-friendly plants have been incorporated into all of our floral landscape displays.

The installation of sunflowers, clover, milkweed, and other pollinator plant species that we have grown over the last 3 years have created an ideal habitat for honeybees and other pollinators to thrive at Easton.

Working alongside the Central Ohio Beekeepers Association (COBA), we currently maintain nine beehives in a remote area to increase the local honeybee population. A direct result is having our very own Easton Honey! Through these hives, Easton and COBA were able to extract over 60 pounds of honey.

At the 2022 Ohio State Fair, a frame of this honey was entered into the competition and won second place in the Creative Arts category. See pictures of Easton’s award-winning honey production below. To learn more about COBA, visit centralohiobeekeepers.org.
