  • Luxurious Soap

    "I’ve used homemade soaps from various creators over the years, but hands down the soap from South Mountain Bees has been the most luxurious ever! I was blown away by the quality. The orange and lemon balm was simply heaven! And the lip balm leaves my lips nourished for hours! I will definitely be ordering again."

    -Ina Norsworthy

  • Perfect lip balm

    "I absolutely love these lip balms. The little tins are super cute. I probably have them in all my drawers and have gifted many. The taste and texture of these is perfect. Soft, smooth, made by a local mom, ecologically responsible!! I recommend them whole heartedly."

    -Divya

  • Best honey I’ve had in the tri-state

    "My husband ordered honey and picked it up, curbside. It has the most delicate, light and exquisite taste, we have ever had and we have tasted many. It’s not heavy or overly sweet. I can’t wait to use it in my teas and cooking.
    Best part, is that South Mountain Bee is local. I highly recommend you try it."

Founder and Beekeeper

Hi! Let me introduce myself. 

My name is Adriana Compagnoni, and I’m the beekeeper and founder of South Mountain Bees. We live by the South Mountain Reservation in New Jersey, and the creative minds of kindergarten and third grade drew our logo and merged the South Mountain Reservation and our honeybees to create South Mountain Bees.

In 2012, we started backyard beekeeping as a family adventure. The sustained decline in the honeybee population motivated us to do our part to help save the bees. 

We started with two hives and a lot of enthusiasm. Our kids' school projects had bees all over! From kindergarten onwards, show and tell, artwork, and essays often featured honeybees.

While harvesting honey, we started accumulating beeswax. That’s when the light bulb went off in my head! 

In 2014, I started making skincare and bath products using honey and beeswax from our bees.

Protecting the environment is an important part of our mission. We avoid pesticides and harmful chemicals and work hard to source the best natural ingredients we can get. Our packaging is as close to plastic-free as possible.
