Mike Johnston from Eaton NY, is a contributor to Bee Culture Magazine. He has also originated two innovative new beehives: the Vertical Partition Two Colony Hive and the Combination Queen Rearing Nucleus and Comb Honey Hive.* He received two Farmer Grants to study these hives from USDAs Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program (SARE).* These two new hives promise to allow Northeast beekeepers to produce their own bees that are better adapted for production and survival in their local areas.* Johnstons Honeybee Farm produces nucleus hives (nucs), brood, queen cells, queens, honey, and pollination services.
