Our Beginnings....
We are a 3rd generation beekeeping family and would like to share our history with those that have found our site.  Our beginnings started before the Great Depression with my grandfather, Ralph Jasper Warne.  He became a commercial beekeeper that migrated through Minnesota, the Dakotas, Colorado and South Texas every year during the 1930's, 40's, 50's and some of the 60's.  During this time, beekeeping was a lifestyle for the whole family as 5 kids helped in some capacity.   Unfortunately, like everything else in life, the family business began to dewindle over time and temporarily ended when my grandfather passed away on January 3, 1990.  For almost 10 years the equipment set dormant until I decided to start using them again in 1999.  My inability to find good honey from any grocery stores sparked my interrest into beekeeping.  I'm very pleased to say that it has been a great decision because I not only have benefited but I've shared this awesome product of nature with family and friends.  

As we have started a new year, I like to update our website to show our progress.  We currently do not have a way to order online but we are working on that and will have some way to do so soon.

I want to thank all our customers for the support you've given us this far.  We continue to receive great compliments for our products.  Please come visit our website over the next several weeks to see the updates that will be made.
