Family Owned Apiary

Smokey Ridge Apiaries is family owned and is located about 18 miles south of Knoxville Tennessee in the Great Smoky Mountains. The owners, Coley & Judy O’Dell have approximately 70 hives that they own and work with.

Coley collects the honey from his hives across the many yards he has them located at. Judy & Coley extract the honey in their certified honey house into stainless steel containers or barrels. The honey is not heated and is only strained enough to get bee particles and wax out. Our customers will be buying 100% PURE HONEY when buying our honey.

We offer 17 flavors of creamed honey. In addition, we offer hand lotion, lotion bars, soap, lip balm, and beeswax candles; all made out of natural products and honey or beeswax.

We also have a self- serve honey shack in our front yard with different sizes of our honey. Prices are on the shelf and you drop money in a little slot. We operate on the honor system and are the only ones in East Tennessee to do so.
