Our honeybees are allowed to build
comb naturally, as they would in the wild. We use two
types of box style hives: Warre with observation windows
and conventional boxes. We feel strongly about the
conservation of honeybees and that they are the backbone
of agriculture. We even remove wayward honeybee colonies
from buildings. Honeybees unfortunately are being
plagued at this time by many devastating pests. We use
an integrated pest management system (see below) to help the bees
cope with these killers.
Our honey is available by mail and is
sold locally at several stores. Our Honey is packaged in
several different sizes and style containers.
Integrated Pest Management (IPM)
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and
environmentally sensitive approach to pest management
that relies on a combination of common-sense practices.
IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on
the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the
environment. This information, in combination with
available pest control methods, is used to manage pest
damage by the most economical means, and with the least
possible hazard to people, property, and the
The IPM approach can be applied to
both agricultural and non-agricultural settings, such as
the home, garden, and workplace. IPM takes advantage of
all appropriate pest management options including, but
not limited to, the judicious use of pesticides. In
contrast, organic food production applies many of the
same concepts as IPM but limits the use of pesticides to
those that are produced from natural sources, as opposed
to synthetic chemicals.
