For those interested and dedicated to keeping bees in the
Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
Checking the bee yard
My name is Joel Lantz and I live in Skandia, Michigan in the beautiful Upper Peninsula. Although retired from the world of everyday work, I continue to follow my passion for education by spending my time raising, learning, and teaching all things bee. When not immersed in this pursuit I spend time in the woods, making rustic furniture, and chasing after my young grandson - the next generation of beekeepers.
I've created this site for those who are interested and dedicated to keeping bees in the Upper Peninsula. I've been keeping bees for 20+ years and enjoy sharing what I have learned. However, you'll find that for every beekeeper out there there are just as many ways to go about keeping bees. Hopefully, you will find some ideas to take away from here and make your own. If there is something you are wondering about, feel free to let me know and I'll see what I can do.
