Park Beekeeping Supplies
We've cultivated from handling hives to getting our very own apiary in Chicago's southwest suburbs with more than 100 hives to today providing Chicago beekeepers a local shop to stock up on beekeeping supplies. Presently, we manage hives throughout the Chicagoland area from Lincoln Park Zoo to Shedd Aquarium to Chicago's downtown rooftops. We offer consulting solutions and beekeeping management as well as offering bees, beekeeping equipment, and our personal metropolitan natural honey at local farmer's areas. We pride ourselves in using the all-natural method of beekeeping by avoiding possibly harmful chemical substances and man-made medicines.

With an existing base of urban beekeeping combined with the city's long record, we look for to assert ourselves in providing Chicago's urban beekeepers with a reliable, knowledgeable, and sustainable source for beekeeping needs.
