How do you manage your beehives?
We are completely treatment-free, no chemicals, no treatments, nothing. We believe in helping to breed a hardier stock of bees; ones that are able to survive without human intervention.
Do you speak to schools, classes?
Nothing would make us happier than to come and share the story of the bee and other airborne pollinators!
