Mel Disselkoen was born on a farm in a Dutch settlement in South Dakota. He grew up with an independent farming mentality of hard work and creative problem solving. A Master Beekeeper, he has kept bees for over 40 years and is familiar with all facets of beekeeping. Today Mel enjoys observing honey bee behavior and teaching beekeepers how to use his OTS queen rearing method to self-sufficiently reach their objectives. A creationist and naturalist, Mel sees the honey bee as an exquisitely -designed being that unites the plant and animal kingdoms and therefore he is devoted to its well-being and protection.
