Dan and Gina Piechowski of Henry's Honey Farm named Beekeeper of the Year

Nov. 8, 2012 | 0 comments

Dan and Gina Piechowski of Redgranite earned the Beekeeper of the Year Award during the Wisconsin Honey Producers Association Convention, Nov. 1-4, at the Best Western Grand Seasons, Waupaca.

Henry's Honey Farm is operated by Dan and Gina, along with Dan's parents, John and Marilyn. The business was established back in 1931 and today consists of 1,400 hives of honey bees.

They bottle their own product and sell and distribute their honey throughout central Wisconsin, and also promote it at numerous farmers' markets.

One of the biggest advancements in the beekeeping business, explains Dan, has been its mobility to transport bees from one state to another. Dan explained some of their bees are shipped to California to pollinate almonds while others are sent throughout Wisconsin to pollinate cranberries and cucumbers.

According to Dan, one of challenges in the past few years has been the onset of mites and other diseases, making it even harder these days to manage the hives.

The Piechowski's have been actively involved in the Waupaca Beekeepers Association for over 10 years, and were co-chairs of this year's state convention in Waupaca.

They have also been involved in the Wisconsin Honey Producers Association for over 20 years, with Dan serving terms as president, vice-president, and district chair.

Their two children, Jalyn, a third grader and Larissa, a kindergartner, have also taken an interest in the family's beekeeping enterprise and are active members in their local 4-H club.
