You may be asking yourself "Why bees" or "Is beekeeping for me". Well, beekeeping may be a whole lot simpler than you think. Beekeeping is one the fastest growing hobbies because it can be easy, fun, and it yields some SWEET results. With a little knowledge and advice you can be well on your way to collecting honey in no time. 

Another great reason to consider beekeeping is the benefit bees provide us. It is estimated that bees pollinate up to 30% of the world's crops. Bees play a pretty important role in our food supply and with dwindling bee populations, beekeeping can help us reverse this trend and be beneficial for all of us. Fort Wayne and the surrounding Indiana and Ohio agriculture needs more beekeepers. 

Getting Started

Beekeeping may seem a little overwhelming at first but there are great ways to educate yourself and learn first hand how to care for bees and their hives. The best way to get started is to connect with a local beekeeping group. The Northeastern Indiana Beekeepers Association has a group specifically to help educate area beekeepers.

We also have beginner beekeeping kits to help you get started with all the essential tools and how-to books. Stop in and check us out in New Haven, Indiana just minutes from Fort Wayne.
