A craft=beekeeper: the home of the beekeeper (if they work there) or a special building where they work. The beekeeper might sell their products from their workplace, but there is no established tag yet to indicate this without doubt.workplace. A beekeeper (apiarist) is a person who keeps honey bees for the purposes of securing commodities such as honey, beeswax or pollen. A beekeeper might also rent hives and bees to farmers for pollination. Examples of places to tag with
An apiary or bee yard is a place where one or more man-made beehives are kept. Consider tagging the apiary with landuse=apiary or man_made=apiary (see discussion of this proposed feature). Individual beehives could be tagged with man_made=beehive (and has been tagged in the past according to taginfo), but hives might be moved around by the apiarist frequently, such that individual tagging might not add any value.
A bee mating station is tagged man_made=bee_mating_station. This is a place where queen bees are fertilized by selected male bees. Usually on islands or in a radius of 7 to 10 km there is no other apiary allowed.
