We are a for-profit family run business.However, we have many services in our business that we cannot charge for.
We sell Beekeeping supplies to the beekeepers but we also are an outlet center for them. We sell their byproducts like honey, beeswax, candles,soap,lip balm, and hair and beard conditioners. We have a maintenance service where we maintain hives for other people. We also teach Beekeeping Classes.
These are all services we are paid for, but we also spend hundreds of hours each year that we are unable to charge for by: going to the schools and talking to the children about beekeeping,
participating in local events with different beekeeping workshops, heading up the local beekeeping association and here at the store, educating people by answering questions about keeping bees. We educate on how and when to add equipment to grow the hive, when and how to remove the honey, how to over winter their beehives and by answering general bee health questions.
All of these services are invaluable to our community and the plight of the honeybee. We are asking for your Help and support so we can keep our store open and continue to provide these services.
Thank you and we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
