Proudly providing the West Michigan area with raw honey products, pollination and swarm removal services.

About Us

In 2011, our first Michigan beekeeping operation began with ten hives.

In 2013 we formed Lake Effect Apiaries LLC, and now maintain between 450 and 500 hives throughout the year.  Located in the countryside of Shelby, Michigan we work closely with neighboring fruit and vegetable farmers by renting our hives out for sweet cherry, tart cherry, apple, blueberry, squash and other vine crop pollination. In July, during our first ‘honeyflow,’ we produce our exquisite raw wildflower honey and beautifully bee-crafted round comb honey sections, as well as many other hive products that our customers love!
