Introducing Our New Beekeeping Specialist

Hi, my name is Fred Selby II, I’m a second generation beekeeper from Chico Ca, where I managed my father’s commercial apiary for the past 15 years.  He runs 6000 hives and raises over 30,000 queens.  He also produces around 200 55 gal barrels of alfalfa honey in Wyoming each summer.

My wife and 4 kids now live in Brownsville and we are loving it here in Oregon.

I am honored to be at Shonnard’s and am more than happy to help with all of your beekeeping questions.  I am also proud to offer Russian queens raised by my father.

I look forward to meeting you and answering your beekeeping questions.  You can also email me at
