Hansen Honey Farm is a locally-owned family beekeeping operation in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. What started as a hobby has quickly turned into a business that involves the whole family. Chris Hansen first became interested in bees by watching his father and grandfather keep bees when he was a child. In elementary school a local beekeeper gave a presentation to his class which piqued his interest even more. After a brief delay in getting started beekeeping on his own due to a family member's allergies, Chris finally began with his first 2 hives in 1998. Chris married his wife Jodie in 2003 and together they have grown this exciting business and continue to expand it every year. The Hansen's enjoy working in nature and providing the surrounding communities with fresh local honey, pollination services, and other hive products.
