We sell ccd/mite resistant Italian queens developed by the allogrooming survival method, and

only natural honey, which is never pasteurized, nor pressure filtered.

We have used no Varroa treatment since spring of 2005   

  

 
 
 
 
This frame of honey, above, is about to be extracted. You can see the quality, and almost taste it!
 

The honey is extracted and bottled by us in minor batches,

that way you know that it is wholesome, natural, and handled with care. 

Our queens are also limited in quantity so when they are sold, we are all out.

Carpenter’s Apiary is a small-scale, high-quality operation.  

The honey and queens are produced and cared for in small lots.

 
 

 I have over 59 years experience as a beekeeper. I am now retired,  I do this because I enjoy it and want to produce an excellent product.

 

Carpenter’s Apiary was established in 1868 . We were a migratory apiary with 2000 hives of bees, which we moved to and from New York, North and South Dakota, Iowa and Florida.
 
 I started raising survival Queens by not using pest strips and by checking test boards for mites that have been pinched and killed by the bees during the grooming process (allogrooming).

Honey is also available and is of the highest quality. We guarantee you will not be disappointed.

 

Becuse of weather extremes, we suspend our queen operation in July, August, December, and January.
