Pollinator Week

Help us celebrate our pollinators!

The very best way to support our local pollinator population is by planting flowers! We have a fantastic selection of native and pollinator friendly plants just waiting to come home with you.

As a thank you from the bees, anyone that makes a $20 plant purchase will receive a FREE 8 oz jar of honey, produced right here in our apiary!

Stay tuned for more fun evens we’re planning to help celebrate pollinator week.

Dan has done quite a bit of research about the natural honeybee habitat, which is typically a tree cavity. Dan will share information about the natural habits of honeybees and what we can learn from observing them in their natural state. Weather permitting, he will also demonstrate how to create a “bee tree” from a hollow tree trunk, and you might even get to go check out his live bee tree!
