Papa's Natural Honey was started by our father, Kazys Laukaitis in 1981 as a hobby in his back yard. He owned a small farm in Hinsdale Illinois. As time went on he had more honey than his 5 children and their families could consume. So he started by putting up a sign, "Pure Honey", and people came to the door to buy his wonderful wildflower honey. In 2013 he finally asked us for help with the bees. We kids never paid much attention to Papa's hobby. All we knew about honey was that twice a year we would get a gallon to take home to feed to our kids. We started to help by working with him at Farmers Markets and by putting some hives in some new locations. Today our kids and our grandchildren are helping with the family bees and the family honey. We have 4 generations working with the honey and Papa is very proud.
Papa's Natural Honey can be found in several local independent grocers and other specialty stores, both in regular and creamed form. Please look for us at Casey's Foods in Naperville, Peter Rubi's in Plainfield, Kramer's Foods in Hinsdale, The Farm in Westmont, at all the Buikema Ace Hardware stores, The Olive Gallery in Yorkville, Great Harvest Bread in Naperville, and at Tea and Spice Merchants in Downers Grove . Our regular honey is also used by several local restaurants as part of their food preperations.
