Caging Queens

We are pulling brood and honey frames in order to make up some additional mating nucs that will be moved out to a mating yard.

Beekeeping in Mating Yard

Joshua (left, 9 yrs.) and Nathan (Right, 14yrs.) are helping to cage mated queens for sale.  I consider it a 
Blessing and Privilege to be able to work side by side with my wife and children. Being a commercial queen breeder at a large scale is hard laborious work, especially in the hot Florida summers. Working together helps to keep it all into perspective.


Joshua 9 years old is already pretty well learning the trade.
