EQUIPMENT & BEES

The Bee Mindful Promise

 

Our bees are 100% Treatment-Free, locally bred, resilient, survivor stock that are raised naturally, sustainably and mindfully with, and according to, Les Crowder's natural beekeeping's principles to be well adapted to local cycles of forage and weather.

 

Our guarantees and key differentiators:

 

  1. We do not use miticides, pesticides or antibiotics ever

  2. We do not subject the bees to harsh organic acid treatments such as Oxalic, Formic or Hop Acids

  3. We do not use essential oil treatments

  4. We do not buy colonies from commercial beekeepers whose combs are contaminated by miticides, pesticides and fungicides, and we do not split heavily and artificially

  5. We do not resell treated bees bought from other suppliers as our own

  6. The queens in our nucs have never been banked or shipped shortly after mating, and they are the mother of the colony (not added to a few frames of bees)

  7. We do not pump our bees full of pollen patties and sugar syrup to push them artificially

  8. We raise our bees mindfully and 100% naturally, organically, with zero treatments

 

 

 

Kindly keep in mind that, for all intents and purposes, we are farmers, so our livestock (the bees) are live animals that heavily depend on the local cycles of weather and forage to grow and produce honey. That means at times we experience shortages of honey or delays in NUC production, although most are typically ready for pickup or delivery between April and June.

 

We appreciate your patience as we do everything in our power to meet our deadlines to your satisfaction while delivering a quality product.
