It all started in the 1970's in Russia. When I was 5 years old, my dad bought bees to help me deal with my asthma as was recommended by a family doctor. Ever since that moment, the numbers of bee hives kept on increasing. Every weekend, my dad and I drove out to the country to work with the bees. We even invented and produced our own equipment. Since beekeeping supplies in former USSR were really limited, beekeepers had to produce their own equipment. I enjoyed working with bees so much that I even went to study beekeeping in university and graduated with a Masters in Beekeeping studies. In 1991, my family and I moved to Israel where I established a big commercial apiary with 1000 hives. After 16 years, I sold my business and moved with my family to Canada where I started another commercial apiary.
Having been in business for over 30 years, I always look for ways to innovate, simplify beekeepers' work, and create machinery and techniques to increase efficiency.
