Master Beekeeper / Proprietor Bonac Bees

Deborah Klughers is an Eastern Apicultural Society Master Beekeeper and the proprietor of Bonac Bees, a full service apiculture and apitherapy company based in East Hampton, New York. She manages over honey bee colonies at numerous locations for both her own honey and hive product production, and for private clients who would like to have honey bees on their property for both ecological servicing and hive products, without any of the work.

Deborah offers lectures and classes, and mentors beekeepers of all levels: she especially enjoys working with children. A strong advocate for honey bees, Deborah is an avid swarm catcher and remover of honey bee colonies from structures, with her favorite removal being from the top of a 60' tall church steeple.

She holds a master's degree in Marine Conservation and Policy from Stony Brook University and is a PADI Certified Rescue Diver. She earned her bachelor's degree from Stony Brook University and graduated as valedictorian, earning a degree in Environmental Studies with minors in both marine science and sustainability studies.

Deborah enjoys nature, animals, art, plants, traveling, making stuff, and honey bees. She is also a very proud parent of four amazing and fully grown humans, two frisky cats, and one old dog.
