Papa's Natural Honey was started by our Father Mr. 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 famlies 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 Children and their Children are helping with the Family bees and the Family Honey. We have 4 generations working with the honey, Papa is very proud.
