Solar Powered Ventilation
We commonly use 21 Solar Powered Ventilators on our production colonies to gain a greater honey volume and improve the health of the colony. Queens lay a much better brood pattern when there's better airflow.
Essential Oil program
Ever since we started beekeeping in 2005, we learned how to use various Essential Oil strategies to knock out Mites and Beetles, at the same time, promote colony health. Proven over time, Essential Oils on bees is not new.

Sustainable Queen Rearing system
Raising some new Queens ought to be fun and exciting. Not tedious and stressful. We never use traditional grafting techniques to create good Queens. Everyone can raise some great Queens, once you learn some simple strategies to do so. Once learned, can never be taken away from you. Very nice!
Year round teaching
There is much to learn in Beekeeping. We teach various beekeeping classes year round. We're heavy on the "teaching side" of beekeeping. You can't eat an elephant all in one bite. But rather, a small bite at a time, over time, you can accomplish the same goal. See our Bee Classes Schedule
for current dates and times.
Pdf Handbook series
Conveying what we do and how we do, is best done in a pdf booklet. With diagrams and pictures of various strategies, protocols and principles. This form of teaching has become popular for us, as the students can "refer back" to particular pieces of information for further study later.
Non-Traditional Beekeeping practices
We employ various "non-traditional" beekeeping practices, that align more with how the bees operate, versus whatever is popular at the local bee club at the time. "Contrary beekeeping" is the phrase that comes to mind and fits best for our style of beekeeping practices.
DVD Learning Center
We've created the DVD Learning Center
, which includes a host of learning DVDs for those who are "visual learners", much like myself. Once you can actually "see" something done, it sticks. Here you can learn many various strategies, tips and tricks to improve your beekeeping efforts and practices.
