From Our Family To Yours

From our family to yours we’d like to thank you for being a loyal customer and supporter 

 of our small, family beekeeping business.  We are David and Sheri Burns from Long Lane Honey Bee Farms and it’s hard to believe we’ve been in the beekeeping business for 11 years. Over the last decade it has been so rewarding meeting so many great people and introducing so many people into beekeeping. We appreciate you being our customer and we are looking forward to serving you for years to come.

We still have several open spots for our beginners beekeeping class this Saturday from 1pm-6pm at our training center here in central Illinois. We are located between Champaign and Danville Illinois about 5 miles south of interstate 74. Click here to sign up now. This is our last beginners class until next February.

Our Winter Bee Kinds ARE NOT SOLD OUT YET!!
Many people are worried we are sold out. We are not. Don’t delay ordering your Winter-Bee-Kind. Our winter-bee-kinds are placed on top of your hive, candy side down. The candy contains proteins and carbohydrates as a winter food source for your bees. It also allows bees to take cleansing flights through a top entrance. And a sheet of insulation below the candy reduces moisture in winter hive. Comes with a recipe so you can refill it yourself. Orders are pouring in so don’t wait too long. Make sure your bees have adequate food for winter by placing our Winter Bee Kind on your hive if for no other reason than insurance that they won’t starve! Available for 10 frame, and 8 frame hives. We will start shipping these in November provided the weather is cool enough to ship.

The Burns Bees Feeding System
Frustrated by the limitations of feeding my colonies in the fall, I invented and created a simple feeding system. It’s been enjoyed by beekeepers now for several years. I use it to feed my bees in the fall so they will build up fall brood for winter survival. This feeding system provides screens to keep your bees down while you change out your feeding jars and add pollen patties. Here in Illinois our bees must now eat their own food for 70 days even before winter arrives!  That’s over two months. There is nothing for the bees to forage on. Try out our Burns Bees Feeding System and help your bees maintain the nutrition they need this winter. Click Here For More Info

Here is a class for you honey enthusiasts! Join Sheri Burns as she talks about honey — how bees get it, how they pollinate, what types of flowers do they pollinate? Why is some honey light while other honey is dark? Learn about what’s in honey and how it’s beneficial to people (do YOU know where those beneficial enzymes come from?).  Watch an extraction demonstration and see how it’s stored. Learn how to cook and bake with honey. And did you know there are other medicinal uses for honey?
