The whole family working in one of the 3 queen yard in Texas

4 generations

4 generations of Peterson's have been involved in migratory commercial beekeeping.  Our summer yards for honey production are located in several MN counties with our honey house being in Howard Lake.  The colonies overwinter in Cleveland, TX where we manage the hives for spring splits and nuc production.  We are grateful for our wonderful landowners who let us keep our hives on their properties.  We currently have around 130 yard locations.

In this photo, Grandpa and grandson are picking queens in one of our 3 queen yards.

Around 20 members of our family have migrated to Texas to help work the hives over the years!
