Locust Valley Apiary (Long Island's Gold Coast)

 

In early 2016 a beekeeper friend of ours told us about a gentleman in Long Island that had 5 acres of property and was interested in hosting an Apiary.

After meeting him and seeing the property, we decided it was time for our first none NYC apiary.

In April 2016 along with his help we installed 6 packages of honeybees on the property. In July we needed to relocate our Maspeth hive and he told us to add it to the apiary.

Now we have 7 hives of honeybees in The Locust Valley. As is the norm, the apiary did not produce much honey this first season. It will be bottled as our Gold Coast Honey.
