Our objective is to promote the art and skills of beekeeping in Indiana and throughout the world.  By doing so, we preserve and improve the general environment in which we live, assist in providing better crop yield,  provide high quality honey, and we do our part to preserve bees.

Swarm Removal
Bee Mentoring

We provide volunteer beekeepers to remove swarms of honeybees in our community. Call Rick Stephens (260) 610-1040 if you need assistance.

For the new beekeeper, or just an extra set of hands and eyes for troubleshooting, we have a list of seasoned apiarists ready to answer any questions.

We have lists of local and national suppliers for all of your beekeeping needs.  Be sure to check out other additional resources to find out more about honeybees. You can also find local honey for sale here.
