Shawn and I started the journey to beekeeping in 2014 when we wanted to have a homestead. When I brought up the subject of bees Shawn was not interested at first so I went on a recovery with a local beekeeping family and completely fell in love with the bees. As I talked about them and got excited to have bees of my own we found out that Shawn's uncle was also a beekeeper! Let's just say it took Shawn no time to also fall in love with the girls! We took a class at our local University and soaked in as much as we could. As we began to grow our apiary we realized there was a need for a local store just for beekeepers. So we opened up Queen Bee Supply LLC in 2018. If you live in the Southeast Texas, Southwest Louisiana area come by and have a cup of coffee and talk bees!
