We are hobbyist beekeepers who just like the honey bees want to share in the fruits (sweetness) of our labor. We specialize in rescuing honey bee hives, cut-outs, which are colonies thriving without beekeepers’ intervention (feral hives). Therefore, none of these hives have ever been treated, or ever will be, with preventive disease or varroa mite chemicals. A survival stock that fights back naturally to survive there current status in the world. Full Disclosure, I have currently (2023), began some experimental trial bee yards/hives that genetically can not control the Varroa Destructor on there own. These hives will be used for resources (brood factories) for our treatment free grafted queens, not for products of there hives. Once hived in standard Langstroth deep hive bodies our bees are encouraged to continue creating their own foundation. After all, wouldn’t you want to build your own house?
In addition to all of our hive products being 100% treatment free, our colonies are not fed after their first successful year of winter survival; unless it’s an emergency, and even then it’s honey frames from our apiaries. Yes, this all takes more time and awareness of our ladies and drones, but in the end it is closest to their natural environment. Hence, why our end products are the best! Our Raw Honey is never heated (pasteurized), and coarsely strained, so all of the antioxidants, enzymes, proteins, traces of pollen, wax, & amino acids are in the jar. We will let you decide why us, why our products are superior to others. Of course, it starts with our love for the complex social structure of Apis Mellifera, and the importance of their survival in the world.
