Anthony’s Beehive was founded in 1999 after Anthony Schwager watched a video with his 3rd grade class that ignited him with a passion for honeybees.  After stalling a year, his parents finally gave in to Anthony’s request and purchased two beehives. Today, Anthony has around 60 hives located in Douglas County, KS.   What makes this business unique is that Anthony was born with developmental disabilities.  If it weren’t for Anthony’s bees, his future career options would be severely limited.  Anthony has turned his love for these fascinating creatures into a chance to support himself with dignity, despite his disability.  He is a role model for people with disabilities as well as everyone else.  Today, Anthony and his family sell bees, honey, pollen, body lotion, lip balm, Honey-BBQ Sauce, Honey Jerky and the always-popular honey straws.
