The Story of ThistleDew Farm

In 1974, Ellie and Steve Conlon left suburban Philadelphia with one son, two dogs, a cat and two beehives, ready to begin a new life in West Virginia. Guided by their deep rooted faith, the Conlons launched several agricultural enterprises and served as foster parents. The Quaker principle “...that of God in everyone and everything...," has guided them in their lives and their business.

From this beginning, the Conlon Family and ThistleDew Farm has grown to include four sons, three dogs, four cats, 700 beehives, beeswax candles, beeswax skin and lip cream, honey mustard, bee beards, pollination and a honey of a gift shop! We can't forget West's Best honey-based condiments and Mountain Craft Shop, home of "fun toys from your past"!

Beekeeping is not only environmentally friendly, it is also a unique, creative and challenging family agricultural endeavor for the Conlons, who strive to offer their customers high-quality products at a reasonable cost. We try to ship our orders within a week of receipt.  We will contact you if there is a delay.

Steve “The Beeman” Conlon is nationally known for his amazing beard of bees and provides demonstrations of this fascinating display around the country, and has appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”

At ThistleDew, “the proof is in the pudding…er, HONEY!”
