South Bay Apiaries: Our Story

Farming and agriculture have always been an interest to me. Starting at young age I would help my family on our dairy farm in Northern New York State, 10 miles from the Quebec border. Clover was an important feed for the cows. It produced a higher cream content then corn fed cows. This made it more conducive for yogurt and cheese production. Raising clover made having bees important. Clover is the bees’ most natural food. The bees helped with the pollination and produced vast amounts of honey from the nectar. It is a symbiotic relationship between feed for cows and nectar for the bees. This was my first experience with beekeeping. South Bay Apiaries keeps with this great tradition of family farming. I bring this expertise to my Long Island apiaries. Providing the best quality honey at competitive pricing. My Adirondack Woodware is of the highest craftsmanship and quality.

Sincerely yours,
