Providing hive services for single or multi-site setups, we can build from the ground up or refurbish/maintain your existing hives.  Regular monitoring of hive and bee status will keep your hives healthy and producing.  A full line of beekeeping supply equipment is in stock at our Minooka, IL warehouse

Keeping hives healthy and happy will yield the sweetest rewards.  We pull, extract and bottle honey several times a season.  If you manage your own hives, we can still provide honey extraction, honey drying and bottling services.  Beekeeping items such as bottles, uncapping tools, screens and extractors are available for purchase.
