Beekeeping Bootcamp

At Bee Wise Farms we are beekeepers! Our colonies survive every year through some of the harshest winters in the US and every year we are able to increase the size of our apiary and sell excess colonies to our local beekeepers from splitting overwintered colonies. We use 100% organic pest management tactics and pride ourselves on our integrated pest management program for managing pest and pathogens of honey bees. The health of our bees is our top priority and it shows with annual losses consistently below 10% (15% is considered a sustainable apiary). Beekeeping Bootcamp is your chance to learn how you too can become a sustainable beekeeper!
