Swarms!

A swarm of bees on a tree branch, captured by a beekeeper for transfer into a new home.

Have you ever seen one of these? This is a honey bee swarm - a bunch of worker bees with their queen. Swarming is a reproductive strategy of honey bees that occurs every year around this time. The colony is growing and running out of room. They start raising a new queen so that the old queen and a bunch of worker bees can leave to find a new home. It's this groups of bees that are called a swarm.

They will hang out somewhere suitable while scout bees seek out a new home. When they find a place they like, the entire mass of bees will leave for their new home. It might take a couple of hours, or a couple of days, but eventually they leave.

Give us a call or email (info<at>thebeeshed.com) if you have one of these beauties in your yard. We'll do our best to give them a new home!

Seasonal Specialty Honey of the Midwest Seasons

Our honeybees roam the prairies and woodlands of Southeast Minnesota, fusing the energy of the sun with the minerals of the earth into the perfect natural food - Honey.

By tapping into the subtle pulses of nectar as different plants bloom throughout the Midwest summer, we are able to produce varieties of honey that reflect the signature scents and flavors of the season.

What Makes our Honey so Special

The Bee Shed Difference

The Bee Shed Difference

Ever wonder why most honey tastes the same and looks the same, no matter where one gets it? It is because the "usual honey" is blended from sources across the country, melding the unique scents and flavors of local flora into a sweet but uniform product. The result is rather like a fast-food hamburger: predictable, momentarily pleasing, but neither memorable nor unique. 

At The Bee Shed, we take a different approach. We know that every flowering species produces a honey with a unique flavor and scent, and that flowering plants bloom in distinct seasons. We work in harmony with the seasonal blooms by doing multiple harvests, each yielding honey with a Minnesota-unique flavor, scent and color.

We believe our Spring, Mid-Summer, Wildflower and Autumn honey are distinctively different and memorable. We hope you'll agree.
