The story

In 1923, brothers Stanley and Harold Bryans began a beekeeping empire.

A Long Standing History

In 1926, when the brothers each established their own businesses,
Harold and his wife Betty began
Chic-o-Bee Apiaries on this site, later called Bryans’ Honey.

With Harold’s death in 1976, son David and his wife Pat continued the family operation for 12 more years. From 1988 to 2021, Kelly Rogers and Toby Bruce continued the tradition of producing high quality Grey County honey under the name Chatsworth Honey.
