About The Bee Store

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

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. We are striving to grow the best beekeepers to create a thriving honey bee population for generations to come. We want to be your resource when it comes to anything dealing with bees.
