About The Bee Store

Beekeeping & Honey Bee Supplies

The Bee Store was created out of a necessity for local beekeepers to be able to come to one spot and see all the beekeeping supplies before they buy.  As with anything great, it has become so much more than just a beekeeping supply store.

From our experienced beekeeping staff members to our classes that give you the tools and knowledge to raise your own hives, we have the expertise to get you there. So if you are asking, “where can I find beekeeping supplies near me?” The Bee Store is the answer.

We focus on providing beginner beekeepers with all of the essentials they will need to become successful beekeepers. Providing quality bee supplies online and a lot of beekeeping 101 knowledge, we can help you with how to start beekeeping and how to raise honey bees.

If you are looking for a place to buy beekeeping supplies online, The Bee Store is the right place! Besides bee hives and beehive components, we carry protective clothing for beekeepers, beekeeping tools, treatments, and many other beekeeping supplies. Additionally, we offer a wide selection of beginning/beginner beekeeping supplies with shipping anywhere in the USA!

We have grown, and with that, so has our mission. Not only do we provide quality beekeeping supplies, but we also are continuing beekeeping education. From our classes where we cover the introduction to beekeeping for those just thinking if it is the right decision for them to the in-depth parts of setting up a hive and prepping for anything that can happen to it. You may be asking, “Where can I learn more about beekeeping supplies near me?”

If you like the idea of keeping your own bees, read on. Whether you’re a backyard beekeeper, homesteader, hobby farmer, or small farmer looking to start a business selling honey and other bee products, we’ll explain the basics of beekeeping. The process of keeping bees is fairly straightforward. Be sure to consider the following factors before embarking on a beekeeping adventure.
