Our Apiary

Our Story

Our farm's namesake comes from a large Shagbark Hickory Nut tree on the farm. When my mother was a little girl she would take refreshments to my grandfather under this tree as well as gather hickory nuts for Grandma's Famous Fudge and it still stands today. My wife and I started HTFA in 2014 when I left my career with the US Marines. We have a deep passion for the land and wanted to farm it in a way that would compliment nature and the environment. The choice was simple!
We would raise honeybees! After a few seasons by myself, I became a Heroes to Hives student and the rest is history. 


Hickory Tree Farm Apiaries is staffed by Nick and Nicole Kaminski. We are assisted by our two young sons: Henry and Walter, as well as, Nick's parents: Dennis and Nita.
