This blog is for beekeepers in Northern climates. I will be describing what I am doing with my bees on a monthly schedule.

This blog explains how I keep bees. It works for me, it might not work for you. Use my methods at your own risk.
Always wear protective clothing and use a smoker when working bees.

The extracting workshop went very well today. Master Beekeeper Bob Sitko and Beekeeper Mike Wybierala wowed the crowd with their knowledge of pulling honey, treating for mites and wintering bees. I had the novice beekeepers in my honey house using the hot knife, extracting honey, filtering honey and bottling honey. Everyone had a great time and hopefully will be able to put the information learned to help them extract their honey.
I have kept bees for 28 years and run 25 colonies. We have changed our business name to Bees and Honey LLC. We are still selling honey at our Stillwater location.
Honey fills (still in Stillwater) anytime but please call
