Thanks for visiting

Ferguson Apiaries

 Bees were always an interest to Bill.

At 5, his aunt took him out to watch her look at a hive.  There were lots of bees and a few stings that day.  A few years later, after being stung while playing in the grass, he figured it was not such a big deal after all.


While still in high school in 1962, Bill became more interested in keeping bees. The following year, a friend and he bought packages from Chester Bee Supplies.

In 1967, Bill continued on the legacy of a local Apiary.

In 1968, he found his Queen bee, Rosemary, and soon followed some little worker bees. Now along with some grand baby-bees, the operation has grown.
