Gajdos apiary

since 1998


Welcome to Gajdos Apiary!

My name is Mate Gajdos, I am an agricultural engineer, beekeeper and queen breeder.

Beekeeping has been a tradition in my family for generations, as a child I was introduced to keeping bees by my grand parents who passed their knowledge on to both my father and uncle.

My family run a beekeeping and queen rearing operation in Debrecen, Hungary and have done so since 1998.

As the business has grown I have become increasingly interested in the industry both at home and overseas, which has led to me working in a number of different countries all over the world and developing a real passion for queen breeding. Nowadays I am focusing only on queen production in our apiary.

In 2017, I successfully applied for the call for “start-up support for young farmers”. From the amount won in the tender, various improvements were made in my apiary.

For me queen rearing is the most interesting and challenging part of beekeeping.
Healthy mated queen production, whether a commercial operator with the capability of producing ten of thousands of queens or a hobbyist rearing just a few at home, requires absolute attention to detail every step of the way, with constant care and perfection in every task executed.

Since 2010 we have been supplying Carnica Pannonica queen bees to beekeepers all over Europe from the middle of May to the end of August.
