About Us

Who We Are

We are an organization of beekeeping enthusiasts. Beekeeping is a centuries old hobby - keeping and caring for honeybees to preserve them for their usefulness in pollinating plants and providing healthy beehive products that include honey, propolis, bees wax and pollen.   

You Don't Need To Be A BeeKeeper

Even if you don't keep honeybees, there is a lot you can do to help preserve and protect. "Bee" a part of the solution, as there is a lot we can learn from the honeybee.

Honey Recipes


Do you have a favorite honey or pollen recipe you'd like to share?

My favorite honey recipe is:

One very small teaspoon
One jar of very nice honey
Dip the spoon in and spin it as you pull it out
Place this in mouth and close eyes
Savor the moment and enjoy as this liquid gold unfolds:)
