Harvest from the Hive
We keep bees by community, and we extract each community separately in small batches.
Our honey has true terroir, a sense of place, reflecting the nectar and pollen that was available in that community, in that season; it’s a time capsule.
Our candles are made of 100% beeswax, and they are hand made by us, with community.
Beeswax candles purify the air around you, they burn longer and cleaner than candles made with other waxes, they are beautiful to look at in display or use, and they support our programming!
Natural Self Care
The products of the hive are incredibly medicinal and a joy to use.
We use our own locally collected beeswax for all of our salves and balms, adding natural ingredients to make soothing creations.
We sell healthy, local, nucleus colonies in the spring (nucs), including delivery and one check up visit.
If you are interested in purchasing bees and starting an apiary of your own, we require you to have taken a course in beekeeping, or to be an experienced beekeeper.
You can attract a variety of wild and domestic bees, as well as other pollinators and beneficial insects, by sowing this custom blend of wildflowers in a corner of your garden, in a planter or anywhere you see a bare patch of soil. Each flower is selected for its rich supply of nectar, drought tolerance, ease of germination and beauty throughout the entire season.
