Warehouse/Extracting Renovation

In the fall of 2018, we decided to invest in a major upgrade to our facilities.  With the original part of the building being constructed in the 1950’s, additions were included in the 1960’s and 1970’s.  It was time.  Our new facilities will make Scandia Honey one of the greatest beekeeping operations in the world!
