Why Beekeeping?

Honey bees and other pollinators are important to our environment, providing essential services for the production of more than two-thirds of the world’s crop species.  This includes produce we can grow in our vegetable gardens as well as forage crops for dairy and beef farms.

In addition to its environmental benefits, beekeeping, even on a small scale, can be an enriching and fun activity for the entire family.  Beekeeping provides boundless opportunities to learn and of course there is the sweet reward of honey!
