ABOUT

Honeybear Brands started life in the 1970s, Elgin Minnesota when our founder Robert “Doc” Westcott planted a small orchard and farmed it with his 13 children.

Today we’re still headquartered on that same plot of land, but with Doc’s son, Fred, at the helm, Honeybear Brands has grown into one of the leading developers, growers and suppliers of premium apple varieties across North America. Our growing operations span four states and include Canada as well as southern hemisphere growing in Chile, as we work year round to bring new varieties and customer favorites to our retail partners across North America.
