    Hi,

    I used to do a lot with beekeeping (serious hobby), but have taken a few years off since moving to urban Minneapolis, Minnesota. This year, however, I'd like to get back into it and start doing it commercially--I have all of the boxes and equipment stored at my parent's farm about 1 hour outside of the city, but no bees. Anyone on here have some contacts in Minnesota to get bees and start the process of becoming an official commercial bee farm?

    Thanks

    Hello Jonathan.

    Did you get set up with bees? Not that I can help, just asking "how's it going?"

    No, everyone I found was out of package bees by the time I found them. I'll just have to aim to get them ordered earlier next year.
    Thanks for asking--how are your bees going this year?

    If not for rain the past 5 days, everythging I guess is fine.

    Have you asked about a package being shipped into your place? Some places such as Hardeman's in Georgia will ship packages. Their number is 1-912-583-2710

    I would of gone nuts having to wait another year when I started. Hope you get bees soon.

    Update:
    I spoke to Hardemans. They are out.

    They did mention perhaps Waldo apiaries in Ohio as a source who will ship.

    Sorry for the late post, but I just joined.

    I'm in Lakeville and my daughter and I got our package of bees from B&B honey farm.
    Which is down in SE MN. Huston MN to be exact.

    Hope this helps for next year.
