Wolf Creek Apiaries, LLC is nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of western Middle Tennessee in the Duck River Valley.
We are dedicated to the organic management of bees. Our stock is derived from the wild feral stock of the Duck River Basin. We add a little Russian genetics, so that the bees will fly at 38 degrees if the sun is shining and the wind is not blowing. Some Italian genetics are added for honey production. The gentleness and winter handiness of the bees is acheived from the addition of Carniolan genetics. The result is a gentle bee that is a good honey producer.
The honey bees of today are not native to North America but were brought over from Europe by the settlers. By most accounts they were introduced some time in the late 1500's or early 1600's. They were believed to be the Dark German Bee or Black Bees. From time to time they can still be seen in the Duck River Basin.
