Our Story

Our family’s bee business began in the 1930’s with six beehives bought at an auction by the ever curious E.H. Adee.  Four generations later, we are still keeping bees.  We have worked at all scales of beekeeping, from a few hives in the back yard to a full migratory commercial operation.  This experience is what sets us apart from any competition.

Beekeeping is both an art and an ever evolving science that can seem overwhelming when you are just beginning, but don’t fret-  we do the research so you don’t have to.  From products to best management practices, we are always updating our shelves and knowledge base and we are here to help.

We hope our prices, dedication to customer service, and knowledge speak for themselves.  Come visit.
