Bee Organic

Who We Are

Bee Organic Farm was founded by Dr. T. B. Nikam on 17th May 1978. We feel pleased to mention that it is the first and the only centre in Maharashtra where indigenous honey bee species and also the exotic ones (i.e. Italian and Indian bees) are maintained in the organic farm. The purpose of the centre’s establishment has been fourfold:

  1. The scientific beekeeping
  2. The development and conservation of bees
  3. Imparting practical training in beekeeping
  4. Encouraging applied research and extension activities in beekeeping

Bee Organic Farm is a place of attraction both for the academics and practitioners interested in beekeeping. Beginning with school children we have been privileged to interact with college students, farmers, tribals and also the Government Officials especially from the Agriculture, Forest and Tribal Developments. Non - Government Organizations also have taken keen interest in our activities.

Bee Organic Farm is a place to visit for Agro-Tourism. It has also been acclaimed as an ideal place for excursions for creating environmental awareness. This is mainly because of the Bio-Village model and the traditional technologies in the farm that add value to the campus and help in promoting organic farming. The Bee and Plant Nursery surrounded by the biodiversity in the farm make Suprakruti Madhushala a must to visit for the environmentalists.

  • Bee Organic Farm conducts various regular and on demand training courses imparting training in the area of scientific beekeeping.
  • Bee Organic Farm Seminars, Workshops and Practical Training Programmes on scientific beekeeping have enlightened people of different ages, different educational backgrounds and different economic statuses.
  • Bee Organic Farm takes great pleasure in extending guidance to the students and teachers for project and research work.
  • Bee Organic Farm is proud of its Exhibits about beekeeping collected globally which area connoisseur's delight to watch.
