About US


The Team at Extract and Box LLC endeavor to promote the healthy open pollination that honey bees add to our local environment. Our sustainability methods cross over into the wider community with environmental conservation and student development programs.

We take great pride in our honey and bee by-products that we produce here locally in Chester County PA.

Our hope is that our network of bee hives throughout the region will facilitate a dialogue among neighbors, friends, family and the community at large about the huge importance of bees and the products derived from them.

Tim Ferris focuses on innovative product development, while maintaining our evolution in sustainable hive management.  As the head beekeeper, Tim has expertise in both apiculture and environmental management, providing a deeper awareness to the flow around us.

Don Finn focuses on forming positive retailer relations and apiary placement with community partnerships.  As the Chief Operating Officer, Don is also assigned equipment and supplement procurement. 

Liz Rutter focuses on product supply and quality-control processes including back-end operations.  Liz is tasked with making it happen, a key ability that we are lucky to have.

Dr Michele Pendrak O.D, is our Director of Clinical Operations.  Dr Pendrak is a leading specialist in ocular disease management, which has allowed the product development of our eyelid butter.   

Rich Redman has a gentle stock of bees that builds up quickly. The Stillhouse Apiary genetic line is open mated in Spring City, where we attempt geographical isolation by offering neighboring apiary yards the same stock line.  Rich is in charge of maintaining our mating nuc program, along with our bear habitat trailer systems that feature nucleus colonies.

Matthew focuses on technical marketing and network development strategies.  Matthew has recently completed internships with McKinsey & Company and the EPA.
