Who We Are

Tate's Apiaries is a family owned, North Carolina business. The husband/wife team of Larry and Janice Tate have been keeping bees for 18 years and have been in business full time for over 10 years. The first hive – started from a cut out – started a passion that has grown steadily and continues to grow.

Tate's Apiaries business currently consists of selling packaged bees, pollination services, and natural products from the hive. The apiaries are inspected yearly and Tate's Apiaries holds a current permit to sell bees issued by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

What Others Say About Us

I began beekeeping in the winter of 2009. My mentor, Larry Tate, has taught me a lot of things that the books can't. Things like actual experience.
Jared Watkins - Bee Happy Apiary

I've been using Beautiful Bee products for a couple of years now and love everything I've tried. The lip balms are favorites and all the soaps I've tried have great lather and luscious smells.
