Tate's Honey Farm










 Grandkids are great Quinn about 5 helping with queens        Amanda and Emma package bee day


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 in the winter the fire place is going. If nothing else come in and talk bees with Jerry, Laura and Kaylee or one of the many beekeepers that stop by to visit. We have beekeeping equipment, honey, pollen, and candle making supplies and provide package bees, queens and pollination services. It is package bee time and we are prepping for all the equipment needed. Package bees will be here April 11, 2015. See the package bee page for details. Follow along through the winter, spring and summer on our blog as we do check our hives at different locations as the weather permits. Keep in touch late winter is a busy time in beekeeping as the commercial guys are heading for California for Almond pollination and the rest of us are starting to worry about early brood buildup and honey stores.
