Help the Honeybee

About Us

Here at Tamarack Apiaries we are a honeybee supply store and maintenance service located in Kalispell, MT which is in the center of Flathead Valley.

We are committed to raising locally adapted Honeybees which play such a critically important and unique role in our delicate ecosystem and are considered the principal pollinators for much of our Nation’s agricultural crops.

Unfortunately, the mutual relationship between honey bees and humans has become out of balance. We as humans have taken much from the bees and put ever-increasing pressure on them. Exposure to manmade toxins, significant changes in ecosystems that bees need to survive, long-distance shipping and transporting of bees, diseases and pests, and genetic modification of plants have all had an impact on honey bee health.

Tamarack Apiaries offers a variety of services for both home and business owners who are interested in supporting and helping restore the natural honeybee population. We take a new direction in the bee world as our business focus is in serving as a one stop source for Honey Bees, Bee Supplies, Bee Hives and, affordable hive maintenance and beehive service contracts.  We make beekeeping enjoyable and easy by managing and maintaining your hives for you, allowing you to sit back and enjoy the benefits of your healthy and happy Honeybees! There is nothing quite as relaxing as sitting in front of your beehive watching worker bees returning to their hive, sacks filled with fresh pollen, content with the knowledge that you are doing your part in restoring nature’s delicate balance while enjoying the personal benefits from your healthy hives.

We believe it is important to give back to the honey bees as much or more than we take from them. There are many great life lessons to be learned from observing a colony of honey bees and our clients all quickly learn how great a neighbor the gentle and docile honeybee is to have.  And the human neighbors will all notice and appreciate the success they’ll have in their own gardening endeavors now that someone has brought back the pollinators to their community!
