• The Wonder!

    The Wonder!

    Observing honeybees is nature at its finest. This is one of the best ways to teach our children about the natural world and the dependance we have on each other.

  • Migratory Hives

    Migratory Hives

    These are pairs of hives on pallets designed to facilitate easy transport. Many beekeepers move honeybees to different areas for pollination and honey production and to warmer climates for over wintering. Honeybees are needed for pollination of food crops that comprise one-third of the human food supply.

  • Permanent Hives

    Permanent Hives

    Some apiaries are semi-permanent to permanent locations.

  • Honey Varieties

    Honey Varieties

    There are over 300 different flavors and colors of honey in North America alone. The flavor and color is based on what the type of plants the honeybees foraged for nectar. This variation can be seen, as well as tasted, at the Bee & Honey Wing of the Ag-Hort Building at the annual Minnesota State Fair.

  • Pollination


    The most important service provided by honeybees is not honey production but pollination. Honeybees are directly responsible for pollination of 1/3 of our food supply. This a Russian worker bee loaded with pollen for the return trip to the hive. Her hairs are also littered with static attracted pollen which will be carried from flower to flower resulting in pollination.
