A Nature-Loving Community

“Happy, healthy, sustainable bees” is our motto here at Birds & Bees Apiary. What started out as a small farm in 2015 soon became a thriving business, with dozens of beehives and a variety of services. In everything that we do, we are committed to producing healthy, quality bees and teaching others to do the same. Group classes and private instruction available. Check out our upcoming class schedule. If you want to learn more, get in touch today.

Everything You Should Know

Our passion for bees and honey turned an idea into a reality when The Birds & Bees Apiary was founded in 2015. What began with a few bee colonies soon turned into a successful business with dozens of beehives. Since we launched our business, we’ve stayed true to our motto: “Happy, healthy, sustainable bees.” In addition to staying local, we also focus on keeping our work sustainable and fair, because we know that happy and healthy bees lead to great nucs, honey, and pollinators for our customers.
