   The
 Dance of the     Honeybee

Lets make this personal

Honeybees dance to communicate. The bee will return to the hive to communicate with the colony as regards the food source. In the excitement of the dance the fragrance of the flower is dispersed and a taste experience is distributed. The bee then dances to convey the GPS coordinates as only nature enables. 

 

The placement of the beehive is where the beekeepers dance starts. Promised Land Apiaries places its bees where exposure to pesticides is minimized, and access to clean water and flowers are maximized. The next step requires the beekeeper to be intimately involved with the wellbeing of the bee. This is where art and science intersect. The science is the observation of the hive growth and surrounding environment. The art is intuitive. It can’t necessarily be taught. It is “caught.”

We place particular attention on quality control for selection and
cultivation of bee stock — uniquely adapted to Long Island conditions.
Approximately 80% of Promised Land Apiaries’ bee stock is locally
grown and bred on Long Island. Which means our stock is custom-tailored for the Long Island environment. Think of it as the facilitation of a built-in immune system, specific to the particular environment. The balance of the bee stock is brought in from the four corners of the world to maintain genetic diversity that imparts the maximum health to the bees of Promised Land Apiaries
