AVILLA – Myers Apiaries in Avilla, is a local business that is growing well, starting from scratch and solely by Jeff Myers in 2009 with only two beehives. Both of those hives were lost over the first winter. He got two more hives the next year.
He spent a lot of time reading and studying online about his business and also became a member of the Northeast Indiana Bee Keepers Association. Attending their meetings enabled him to learn a lot from others in the business. His business has grown from
those first two hives he lost, up to 13 at the start of this year and is currently up to 25
plus beehives. This year, Jeff has collected about five hives and has split some of his existing hives.
Jeff does swarm collection, but does not relocate his hives for pollination. If you have a honey bee hive that you would like removed (swarm collection), you can contact him at 260-897-3019.
The products Myers Apiaries offers are pure unadulterated honey, chunk honey, comb honey, and wax. These products can be purchased at Huntertown Gardens in Huntertown, Millers Supermarket in Garrett, and at the Avilla Farmers Market.
