Bjorn Apiaries is a family owned and operated honey bee business, located in southcentral Pennsylvania.

 

Our operation is focused on maintaining bees and providing mating stock from overwintered nucs and hives, and void of harsh mite treatments and chemicals. All of our bees overwinter in Pennsylvania. 


Honey and beehive products are produced with a licensed state honey house certificate of inspection. 


Bjorn Apiaries provides a host of services centered around helping beekeepers in a more natural way of maintaining hives. We have experience with traditional Langstroth hives, Warre hives, Top Bar Hives, Two Queen Tower systems, various comb options, as well as an IPM (Integrated Pest Management) program to foster healthier hives.

 

Please Note:

The pages of this website are filled with our opinions, advice, observations, and experiences. We did not make this site out to be filled with research, other beekeepers experiences, or filled with book filler and academia type data to impress you. All information is from our own collected beekeeping experiences here at Bjorn Apiaries. EVERY picture is from a Bjorn Apiary location. You may not agree with everything we say. And that is ok. The intent of this site is to be honest, while passing on information from another beekeeper who wants to help others enjoy the fascinating world of BEEKEEPING!.

We invite beekeepers as well as anyone wanting to get started in beekeeping to contact us for a visit to one of our yards. There is always something going on within the bee community.

 

Please scan the pages of this website for details on classes, information on various types of beekeeping, as well as services and products that we offer. Do not hesitate to contact us with any comments or suggestions.

If you have any questions, please click here. We spend a considerable amount of time helping new beekeepers with questions and working out problems. While we do try to reply in a timely manner, there is a busy season, and of course sometimes we are simply away on business or pleasure. Thank you.

Backyard Beekeepers' Association. It explains some issues affecting bees, the details behind the problem, and perhaps a good way to pass along some information.
