All About Beekeeping At Long Lane Honey Bee Farms
Thank you for your interest in beekeeping. We are beekeepers too. As a family business we believe we can give you the personal touch you need to become a successful beekeeper. We started beekeeping in 1994 and began building beekeeping equipment in 2005. We live down a long lane, thus the name Long Lane Honey Bee Farms.
We have become well known for our BASIC BEEKEEPING lessons, and our beekeeping classes. We introduce thousands of new beekeepers to beekeeping each year through our thorough, yet simple to understand beekeeping lessons which are available online FREE and our videos and classes.
Our goal is to provide the best urban and basic rural beekeeping materials possible at an affordable price. We manufacture all hive components and ship to all 50 states. When you purchase from us, not only does it allow us to live out our dream of making a living from beekeeping, but it allows us to continue to work hard at helping more and more people start beekeeping. We need more backyard beekeepers to help save the honey bee.
David is a certified Master Beekeeper of the Eastern Apicultural Society of North America.
Beginning beekeepers call us from around the country asking for advice and opinions. It is such a joy for us to see more and more people become involved as beekeepers!
We offer beekeeping classes here at our location almost every month, from basic beekeeping classes and queen rearing courses, all the way to advance courses in beekeeping as well as "Getting Your Bees Through The Winter" courses. If you have trouble getting your bees through the winter, perhaps you'll want to read David's new ebook, "Beekeeping: Getting Your Bees Through The Winter" available through Amazon. We want to get to know you better, to become a friend and mentor, and to help you enjoy keeping bees.
We sell package bees, nucs, and raise and sell our own production queens. We also manufacture all beekeeping equipment and we'd love to have you as a new customer.
