Welcome to
Crimson Creek Apiaries

"Keeping Wild Girls in a Box"®

Crimson Creek Apiaries,LLC is owned and operated by Linda and Norman Lachimia of Sewickley Township, PA.

In addition to selling 100% raw honey and honey goods, we also build Langstroth Woodenwares.

Norman is the e
xpert craftsman of our Langstroth bee hives. The Langstroth hive, patented in 1852, was the first successful top-opened hive with movable frames. The biggest advantage of this kind of hive is that the bees will build honeycomb into the frames, which can be moved easily by the beekeeper. These moveable frames allow the beekeeper to manage their hives and extract honey in a way that was once impossible.

Please note:

Our hives are built to order, so please allow 7-10 business days for completion.
Local pick-up only.

We also provide swarm removal and honeybee extractions.   

So if you’re lucky enough to witness a swarm, consider yourself among the privileged. Then quickly contact Swarmin' Norman - because he absolutely loves to collect swarms of honeybees.                                               

All of the honeybees that we recover are safely relocated to their new homes at our apiary.

While working in your garden or relaxing outside on a summer day, have you ever stopped to listen to the soft hum of the industrious honeybee?  These beautiful and fascinating little creatures play an important role in human society. Humans and bees have had a close relationship for thousands of years. At Crimson Creek Apiaries, we do our part to enforce this relationship by increasing awareness of honeybees and promoting beekeeping to our customers and the general public. To be honest, we have a lot of fun! Please browse our site and feel free to contact us with any questions or comments you may have.

Congressman Tim Murphy recently visited Crimson Creek Apiaries. Linda and Norman took the Congressman on a tour of the facilities. We toured the wood-shop where the beehives are made, the educational area and the bee yards. The Congressman is very interested in the agricultural and economic impact the bees have on the area.
