Apiaries

Apiary near a pipeline outside Brookhaven MS

An apiary is a place where beekeepers maintain their hives. We keep bees in several different areas throughout southeastern Louisiana & Mississippi. When the bees leave your home or building they are likely to be placed in one of these apiaries where they can lead productive lives. We harvest the honey and beeswax and the bees pollinate the surrounding vegetation.
