Bees & Honey


Minnesota usually ranks in the top 5 states in honey production and we have much commercial migratory beekeeping activity here. Each year Minnesota beekeepers move many colonies to California and several southern states for pollination and over wintering. Many other beekeepers winter bees here in Minnesota.
