Company History

Little Mule Bee Supply, started by David Mosinski and Douglas Victory with different but complimentary background and skill sets. Douglas Victory is an active beekeeper for several years operating several hives and selling honey and Russian queen bees and hives under the name of “Victory’s Bees”. Through the years he has been concerned and frustrated with equipment available today for the beekeeping community. Most items have a one size fits all or have stayed the same design without change for many years even decades and not adapting to the changing demographics of beekeepers. This brought about several concepts and designs for new or modified products. As Douglas reached out for assistance he was introduced to David Mosinski.

David has intensive business background in all phases of manufacturing, factory operations, distribution, sales and marketing of new products. Dave has actively assisted, consulted and mentored businesses in the development of new product designs, improve productivity processes, defining the sales marketplace, marketing and advertisement of products. He holds multiple degrees, several professional certifications and several patents plus taught classes in sales and marketing, contracts and negotiation, International business, operations management and more at various universities for several years.

Over time as Douglas and David worked together a friendship developed with respect and mutual accord resulting in Little Mule Bee Supply, LLC. They both recognized the product needs for beekeepers with a long-term vision within its mission.


Doug Victory is a long time outdoor enthusiast between hunting and fishing and of course beekeeping. A friend offered him a mule several years back and ever since has become a lifelong companion going while hunting and even to the bee hives. Doug's wife noticed the mule always following him around like a shadow. Hence his name SHADOW.

Doug sees the values of his mule in our products. Strong, steadfast, loyal, determined, helpful and of course a bit stubborn. Our company is using the Little Mule to reflect our commitment in the products we sell, the services offered our capability to recognize need, our consistent high level of quality and stubborn to make thing right every time.
