  • Honeybear Brands is a leading developer, grower and supplier of some of the best eating apples in the world

    We started life as a small, Minnesota orchard in the 1970s and grew steadily and thoughtfully for 40 years. Honeybear still retains the hands-on approach and attention to detail of a local grower, but today is one of the country’s top authorities on varietal development and a supplier of premium apples to the country’s leading retailers in markets all across the United States.
