Tularosa Basin Bee Farm is family owned and operated. The owners and operators are Bob and Diana Bleakley. Diana's grandfather and great grandfather were beekeepers in Hagerman, NM. Many of our grandchildren have assisted us in the management of our colonies.
Our operation was started in 2003 after we retired from administrative careers. In the beginning, we maintained our colonies in Grant County, NM and operated under the name of Mimbres Valley Honey. We relocated to Otero County in March 2009
