Backyard Beehive

james-wilkes-beehiveHoneybees obviously produce delicious honey, but they are also necessary for one third of the food we eat. The plight of these critters has caught the attention of the world with recent large bee losses in the United States. Would you like to help bring them to your neighborhood? Would you like to have honey from your backyard? Would you like to have your own beehive?  Would you like to learn how to take care of bees?

We offer several options that range from owning and learning to manage your own beehive to leasing a hive for your backyard to simply sponsoring a beehive to help promote beekeeping. These options vary in expense and personal involvement, but each one puts more bees in the neighborhood and honey in your pantry.
