2 Spots Have Opened For Tomorrow's Beginners Class

We are David and Sheri Burns from Long Lane Honey Bee Farms here in central Illinois. 

We are excited as tomorrow is our first onsite class for the 2018 year! Most students have pre-ordered their hives and will be picking them up tomorrow.

We had a couple that had to cancel from tomorrow's class due to illness, so we have two spots available. Click here to register. Class is from 1pm - 6pm for Basic Beekeeping. Our next two beginner classes are sold out so this is your chance to get into an early class.

And our store is open tomorrow and on other Saturdays when we have class! Drop in and and see us.

Honey Bees and The Solar Eclipse
It's cold and snowy in Illinois! But remember last summer when we had the solar eclipse and the sky became dark as night? I observed my bees, and was wondering what would happen. Well, to be honest...nothing. They slowed down their foraging a little, but as soon as it brightened up, they were back at it. Here's an interesting question: Why can bees stare at the sun but we have to wear special glasses? 

Here I'm with two of my three daughters, Jennifer (left) and Karee. We were sporting some cool shades last summer. Can't wait till summer time again. There's me and Christian to the right watching the eclipse.






I'm glad you are keeping bees or thinking about it. Thank you for supporting our family business for all your beekeeping needs.

Sincerely,

David and Sheri Burns

Lolita and I are really excited about your new online courses! We are 5th year beekeepers in the Texas Master Beekeeping program. When we watch your youtube videos we can rely on getting quality information… (Choose your instructors carefully)
What we really wish is that you were close enough for us to come and participate in one of your queen rearing courses. Unfortunately Central Texas is a long way away. We have been grafting for a couple of years and have learned a lot from your online videos.
Thanks for all you guys do. Lolita and Joe
