Cathy & Mike Mackiewicz

Cathy and Mike Mackiewicz started Bone Lake Meadows Apiary, have been keeping bees for
over 23 years and have hives in various locations along the St. Croix River Valley. “Our apiary
aims towards sustainable beekeeping. As beekeepers it’s our job to set up our bees to succeed.
We do this by placing our bees on organically farmed land, orchards, garden plots and CSA
farms. All of our honey is completely raw and unadulterated and filtered once to remove large
chunks of wax. With this process you can both taste and see the difference. After harvesting,
we use our own beeswax to make hand-poured candles and natural lotions and lip balms.”
