LOCAL 2019 QUEENS
I will be raising and mating queens from exclusively overwintered stock this year
Alaska Peak Bees is a small beekeeping operation located near Anchorage, Alaska. The area provides a challenging environment in which to keep bees year-round, but our ultimate goal is to develop a practical management approach to maintain a locally sustainable population of bees.
Raising local queens
I raise queens from locally overwintered stock as part of an effort to improve the winter hardiness and survivor-ship. Efforts are made to provide suitable drone sources (i.e., from overwintered colonies) for our virgin queens.
Most of our production hives are located at the Spring Creek organic farm in Palmer.
