Learn more about beekeeping from Leo Lockhart.

Beekeeping is an exciting endeavor, but it can also be overwhelming and even confusing at times.  That is where we come in!  Leo Lockhart grew up learning about bees from his father, and in 2013, he turned that knowledge into a successful commercial beekeeping operation. We are passionate about all things beekeeping, and we want you and your hives to succeed.

Please Note: We do NOT offer swarm removal at this time.  We recommend that you reach out to a local beekeeping club or organization for swarm removal contacts.
