Pollinators face many threats today. Therefore we need to support more, and diverse, pollinators on the landscape. We treat the honey as just a fringe benefit of doing what is good for our landscape.

We have partnered with Dan & Bonita Conlon of Warm Colors Apiary in South Deerfield:

  • We provide a bee yard to support a greater diversity of locations for Dan (current President of the Russian Honeybee Breeders Association) to grow and maintain his pure Russian lines chemical-free. These bees are remarkably hardy and selected for their resistance to many of the problems associated with modern commercial beekeeping.
  • Dan provides our neighborhood with pollinators, and even some honey.
  • We love farming with partners such as these.
