Our Mission

Canyon Rim Honey Bees aspires to produce small numbers of high-quality queen bees which are  locally adapted to the conditions of western South Dakota and surrounding regions.

We don’t ship our bees south for the winter or west for pollination.

The queens we produce are those which have exactly the same characteristics that we ourselves desire in our bees:  we want our bees to be gentle, productive, mite tolerant and winter hardy.
