The principle operator of Honey Glen Apiaries is Michael Staddon who came to Salem, West Virginia with his family in 2003. The family consumed so much honey that they looked into beekeeping as a means of producing honey at a lower cost.
Our involvement with the local beekeepers association has been very beneficial and in 2007 we began helping educate new beekeepers at the annual Beginner Beekeeping school. As time went on, Michael began to see beekeeping as a potentially profitable business and launched Honey Glen Apiaries in 2012 with help from his family. Michael is president of North Central WV Beekeepers Association, and served as secretary for the West Virginia statewide association (WVBA) in 2014 and 2015. In 2014 Michael achieved master beekeeper in the WVBA Master Beekeeper Program. His view that beekeeping is a stewardship of God’s creation is the foundational principle for his day to day decisions in the business.
