Rootes Farms

A Work in Progress

Rootes Farms produces honey bee 5-frame nucs and started pullets (layers) in the Spring.  Throughout the Summer, chickens, turkeys, quail and other poultry will be available as they grow and mature. This year we will also be offering Ohio raised Honey Bee Queens .


Fresh, healthy eggs are available for purchase nearly every day.  The rollout nest box is one of only a few products also offered at the farm. 


The goal is to have available to our customers certain products and services that are our specialties.  We do not want to be all things to all people.  This way, our customers get only the best we have to offer, every day.

Located in Amherst Township, Ohio the Rootes Farm is nearly 7 acres of constantly changing landscape.  Honey bees and poultry are the primary emphasis on the farm.  Something new happens here nearly every day.  We're busy putting infrastruture in place, new buildings and facility, while maintaining the 200+ colonies of bees and hundreds of chickens currently residing here.
