Lip Balm & Skin Creams

Naturally Soothing

Gardener’s Hand Cream is simply extradordinary, with its primary ingredient being shea butter, derived from the karite tree which grows wild in West and Central Africa. Shea butter is an emollient that is extremely therapeutic, helping to heal cracked, aged and damaged skin. Not only does Gardener’s Hand Cream work on hands, it does wonders for dry feet and elbows, too.


Tea Tree Skin Therapy is rich in shea and cocoa butters, jojoba and avocado oils, vitamin E, and uses beeswax as an emulsifier to help the skin retain moisture. If there were ever a miracle dry skin treatment, Gardener’s Hand Cream and Tea Tree Skin Therapy are it.

Stasia & Glenn PenkoffLidbeck

Stasia grew up in Trumbell, Connecticut, next door to her grandparents and their 30 hives.  In 1998, she rekindled her interest in bees, starting with two colonies -- which quickly grew to five after hiving a swarm that swarmed again and again. So by 1999 we had surplus honey and Three Sisters Farms was born.  After daughter, Kyra, had an anaphylactic reaction to a bee sting, Stasia and the girls focused on making products with honey as an ingredient.  Glenn took over as primary beekeeper and manager of online store operations. Today the three sisters, Kyra, Anastasia, and Nadia, return to assist with major events.
