The last several years have taught us a very big lesson… A Beekeeper is not just a Beekeeper. To some it may seem like a beekeeper just takes honey puts it into a bottle and that is it.
This is not true, most, beekeepers study, apprentice with another beekeeper or go to school, and work hard to keep their bees happy. Beekeeping is full time work! Beekeepers spend a lot of time educating themselves so they have the latest information. They also spend a lot of time with the bees making sure they stay healthy and are well maintained from any harm.
Consumers themselves- We are the ultimate consumers of what comes from our hives!! This is why so much time and care goes into the bee hive. The better the bees are taken care of the better honey will be produced and the better life a bee will have.
Educators- We pride ourselves, like other beekeepers, to be able to answer questions that customers have. We want customers to ask questions because we believe better decisions are made when all information is given.
Activists- Bees are important to our eco system, as well as, our food supply! We want and need them to survive. So we are constantly sharing the importance of saving the bees and how important it is to not use pesticides. We also talk about plants that are bee friendly and other ways to help the bees survive and come back.
Some beekeepers are family oriented! We personally believe what goes into our mouth also goes into our children’s mouth. So we are extra vigilant on what we feed our bees and how we care for them. We believe that how our honey turns out is a direct reflection of how we take care of our bees. We want our children to learn the many different ways to take care of bees, nature, and ultimately themselves.
For us beekeeping is a way of life and a way to keep in touch with nature.
From our bee hive to yours,
