Queens! We are proud to be able to offer queens for sale. We now do our own grafting and rearing of queens from our best hives. We have a few hives that are now into their third year suriving harsh northern winters. And, these hives have survived all pests and disease, including mites without any medication now for the last few years! We introduce new drones from other areas and use breeder queens to produce a strong queen. Our queens are selling fast!! If you want to try one of our queens, give us a call while supplies last.

Beekeeping is a blast! I suppose bees have been falsely portrayed as "killler
bees" taking over homes and whole cities. That's Hollywood, not reality. Anyone can keep bees. It's easy. Most beekeepers find their bees to be very calm and workable. Sometimes, I just sit by my hives, and watch the bees work, flying in and out. It's therapeutic
We manufacture beehive wooden ware
. We make hives, supers, frames, feeders and more. In 2007 we've shipped to 47 states!
Everyday, UPS backs up to our shop and loads up more hives going out to new or expanding beekeepers around the country. We've even shipped to Hawaii! One of our complete hives weighs around 70 pounds. Some days we've shipped out over 500 pounds of hives! We also provide beekeeping equipment such as electrical hot uncapping knives, micron honey filters, protective clothing, smokers, hive tools, fume boards and fume and the whole works!!
Not only do we sell honey, but we also melt and mold our own beeswax. People love to buy pure beeswax. It smells so good and can be used for making candles, lotion, lip balm, and lubricating bows or sticky drawers--just to name a few of its many uses. After processing the honey supers, we have a lot of wax cappings
left over. These cappings
make the finest, and newest beeswax. They are washed thoroughly to remove any honey from the wax. We repeat this wash cycle several times.
Then, we melt our wax the old fashion way. We simply melt it in a large pan on the family's grill. Here's how we get our grill going good to melt our wax. Seems like a few steaks and some chicken gets
the fire good and ready to melt the wax. Of course, the fire is only ready about the time I have finished my steak dinner. After all
, there's no need to let all that good charcoal go to waste, right! Who needs to buy an expensive wax melter when you can have such a good excuse for eating steak!
After the wax melts, I allow the more solid matter within the wax to sink to the bottom of the pan. Then, I pour it into another container that has a cloth filter on the top. From this container, I am now ready to pour the wax into my various shaped molds. It hardens very fast, then it pops out real easy. It is then wrapped and sold, locally or through our Internet
So you can see why I ask, "Why doesn't everyone keep bees?"
We also manufacture beekeeping equipment such as beehives. We sell every possible beekeeping supplies you need! This year we are also selling package bees and queens! Read more...
