Our Story


Tom Eisele started beekeeping as a hobby in the countryside of Westfield, Indiana, in 1981. The hobby quickly turned into a labor of love that included maintaining over 2,000 registered hives. 

Eisele’s remains a small, family-owned business dedicated to providing the consumer with the highest quality honey, produced with integrity right here in the American Midwest. For nearly 40 years, we have maintained an artisanal, small-batch approach to honeymaking with absolutely no extra processing or added ingredients. 

How do you pronounce Eisele?

It sounds like EYE-slee — just like the Isley Brothers, the singing group from the 1960's and 1970's ("It's Your Thing"), or as Bob says, "Choose wisely, choose Eisele's".


We were proud to have our raw honey used in a beer crafted by Sun King and then picked up by Sierra Nevada for their Beer Camp. The beer, named Family Values, celebrated the best of the Midwest: Minnesota wild rice, our honey, Missouri oats, Michigan hops, and cocoa nibs from Illinois, as well as Sierra Nevada’s estate-grown malt.
