Our Experience

We have had the opportunity to learn from so many great beekeepers as we grow and develop our business. We seek out a variety of points of view, techniques, and practices and will try just about anything once.

We are compiling this information for beekeepers to use to grow their apiary or better their skillset. With a goal to continue learning every day, a focus on building a business with sustainable practices, and a practical approach - we've built our first-generation farm from the ground up.

Starting with a single. hive, growing to 80+ in the first year, and continually growing each year after that, we're happy to share the brilliant revelations and frustrating pitfalls we've found along the way.
