Thanks for your interest in Long Lane Honey Bee Farms. We are beekeepers who enjoy beekeeping so much, we just had to start our own beekeeping business! We are a family owned business and got our start on the Internet. We started keeping bees in 1994 and began building equipment in 2005. We began building equipment for our own hives, but decided to sell equipment too--thus, LONG LANE APIARIES also know as LONG LANE HONEY BEE FARMS.
Our mission is to provide the best beekeeping materials possible at an affordable price. Since we are a family operated business with little overhead, we pass that savings on to our customers. Some people ask us why we do it, and our response is: BEE-Cause We Can!We will be adding extra features and products in the future, so come back regularly.
We manufacture all hive components. So far, in 2007 we have shipped hives to 45 different states, even to Hawaii, Alaska and Canada!
Our busiest time of the year is between January and July when we keep the shop going 17 hours day! There is such a demand for our products.
We get a lot of calls asking us to remove swarms of honeybees from homes, barns, and trees. We enjoy helping remove honeybees so that we can give them a proper home where they can expand and function as a full hive.
We use and manufacture a special BEE-VAC which sucks bees safely into a special retrieval screen box so that we can transport them to their new home.
UPS comes every day to pick up hives and deliver them to excited beekeepers around the USA. We are fortunate to be able to help others get started in this enjoyable hobby. 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!
Stop in and see us some time. You'll have a SWEET TIME! Folks drive up all the time to buy honey and hives. And you can contact us at:
