Become a HoneyHome Owner
Beekeeping is an incredibly rewarding hobby, but we know that even the most dedicated
honey bee lover can quickly become overwhelmed in researching how to start a hive. But what if you could learn
the art of beekeeping, without the stress of overcoming the steep learning curve or the worry that your
hive may not survive that tricky first year?
We want to make the transition to honey bee ownership easy, stress free, and fun!
Would you like the opportunity to experience hands-on lessons on hives in your own backyard, maintained by a professional beekeeper? If so, apply to be part of our HoneyHome program today!
As a HomeyHome owner, you will receive two installed and fully-maintained honey bee hives in your backyard. Your honey bees will be well cared for, using all-natural practices. Along the way
we will provide you with beekeeping classes, workshops with other HoneyHome owners, and hands-on instruction to prepare you to take full ownership of your honey bees.
You will learn about bee biology, employing integrated pest management without damaging chemicals or antibiotics, and how to responsibly harvest products from the hive. After 16 months, the hives are yours to maintain. Your garden will love the benefits from these most efficient pollinators, your friends will love the gifts you harvest from the hive, and you can feel good knowing you have helped support our honey bee population.
