For many years, Corey Lake Orchards has sold a variety of honey products from Babcock’s Apiary. The apiary has been around since 1993, the year proprietors Corky & Brenda decided on a family hobby that would be both educational and fun.
Babcock’s Apiary is located on the hills of Coon Hollow Road, here in Fabius Township. Even though there is (yet) no medical proof that consuming locally produced honey will help with seasonal allergies, many of our customers are convinced it works. And we are pleased to provide their relief!

“Handcrafted by Kathy” Totes
“Handcrafted by Kathy” Totes are 100% cotton and machine washable embroidered canvas bags, generously sized for your shopping needs. On occasion, quilted totes are also available. 100% of the profit from sales of all totes supports global famine relief through the Hunger Fund at IDES (International Disaster Emergency Service, www.IDES.org), a Christian organization based in Kempton, IN, offering help and hope to a hurting world.
The bags are, indeed, handcrafted by Kathy Davenport, of Livonia, MI, a longtime friend of Beth Hubbard of Corey Lake Orchards. Following retirement from the auto industry in 2008, Kathy has rediscovered her love of sewing, and enjoys using her talents to help those in need. In Matthew 25:40, Christ tells us “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”
Raw, Unprocessed Honey and Bee-Themed Products
Charlotte Hubbard, daughter of Dayton Hubbard, is carrying out her late husband’s interests by selling local honey from his bees. The containers are adorned with different hats and themed scarves, because, well — they’re just so darned cute that way!
This honey is natural — only coarsely filtered to maintain what medical professionals deem essential, allergy-fighting nutrients, and never heated. As a result this honey may not be as clear as other commercially produced honey, but it is sure to be more flavorful!
All profits from sales go to support SW Michigan anti-hunger charities Loaves & Fishes and Meals on Wheels. These were two of Tom’s favorite causes.
