We had a sweet dream…
From the first taste of real honey, the feel of wax, the smell of the hive, the intricacies, and complexities of the colony. These little creatures completely changed our lives.
Our journey into beekeeping started with two hives and borrowed equipment, guided by a gentleman with over 70 years’ experience. There is something magical about entering a bee colony. A mixture of wonder, amazement, and fear. Yet if you pick your time and treat them with respect, they let down their guard and let you explore. It is such a rewarding experience to work with a colony with their acceptance.
We believe beekeeping is mutually beneficial to both humans and bees. We give them the resources to survive and help them expand. In turn, we only take surplus honey, which allows them to feed their young with the honey they worked so hard to store.
Our principle is the bees must come first; we do not relocate the bees for mono-crop pollination. They have a place to call home, with an abundance of diverse nectar and pollen. The result is a single batch, traceable produce with local adaptation, minimal stress which keeps our bees and honey free of pollutants and chemicals.
