Tate's Honey Farm is a family run business that has been meeting all your beekeeping needs since 1971. We run our own beekeeping operation and provide a location for all beekeepers to stop by and hear the latest news. The Coffee is always on and the fire place is going. During November my Brother  Cliff passed away, he has been active with my Blanchard bees and a great help during package bee day. Cliff will really be missed by our family. We have moved into our winter hours and are open on Saturday 08300 am to 5pm. We have all your equipment needs here, from hive kits, bee suits,  smokers, and hive tools. We have all your medications needs also. Just take a few minutes check out our shop.
