A  beekeeper's 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 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, use shop=honey in this case.

  • landuse=apiary or man_made=apiary - for an apiary or bee yard, a place where one or more man-made beehives are kept. See discussion of this proposed feature.
  • man_made=beehive - for individual beehives. Consider that hives might be moved around by the apiarist frequently, such that individual tagging might not add any value.
  • man_made=bee_mating_station - for a bee mating station, 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.
