From Bill Sprenkle:

Bill Sprenkle

Bill Sprenkle is the owner of the Log Cabin Bee Farm, LLC located in York County, Pennsylvania. The farm is a micro-honeybee breeding operation with the mission to produce hygienic (VSH) queens for colony sustainability and production. The operation includes seven apiaries and 50 to 200 colonies depending on the seasonal production needs. Bill’s lifetime passion has been observing and interacting with nature with a focus on plants and wildlife. Approximately 18 years ago, his primary interest became honeybees when his wife surprised him with two hives for a birthday gift. Bill, like all beekeepers, quickly learned the importance of the honeybee queen for colony performance and sustainability. After reading a few queen rearing books, he felt prepared to produce “quality” queens but quickly learned his new journey would be longer, more challenging, and more rewarding than anticipated. In 2010, after retiring from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as the Executive Deputy Secretary of Corrections, Bill expanded his breeding operation and began to ship VSH queens for beekeepers throughout the United States.
