About AP's Apiaries
Hello, I'm AP Warne and I'm the owner of AP's Apiaries. As I mentioned on the Home page, my grandfather was very involved with beekeeping and I started it up again as a hobby after college. I have been keeping bees since 1999, and I have loved every minute of it. I now share the hobby with my wife, Simone. She wasn't a beekeeper before we met, so the hobby was completely new to her. She too, has learned a lot in a short time and I'm sure she will continue to learn with more bee yard experience. For those that aren't honey bee savvy and may be asking, "What is Apiaries?" Don't worry, it is a very common question and the word is well known in the beekeeping industry. It is actually the plural form of Apiary and an Apiary is simply a bee yard. I've been involved with Collin County Hobby Beekeepers by serving as President, Vice President and Delegate and the Texas Beekeepers Association as a Director. I've spent most of my beekeeping career helping others in their bee yard either for my own benefits of learning the trade or teaching what I have learned. I currently maintain the observation hive at the Heard Museum in McKinney, Texas. I also attend several different events throughout the Dallas area in support of beekeeping to educate the public. I will openly admit that I do not know everything about beekeeping and I don't think that I ever will. So I will keep an open mind to new technologies and techniques that may improve our beekeeping industry.
I like listening and talking bees with fellow beekeepers. So if you have a question about beekeeping, please don't hesitate to contact me. My contact information is of course on the Contact Us page. Thanks for taking the time to read my short little bio page, AP
