Healthy Honey Bees

Beekeeping for the health and wellness of our bees

We put the health of our hives before the honey!

Everyone has a role in protecting bee health - whether you are a beekeeper, farmer, pesticide applicator, home gardener, or someone just looking to learn more about bees. You can plant bee forage, follow pollinator-friendly pest management practices, control varroa mites in your hives, and spread the word about bee health.

Some things you can do to help

  • Become a beekeeper
  • Eat more honey and buy it from a local bee keeper
  • Stop using commercial pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers
  • Let dandelions and clover grow in your yard
  • Plant bee-friendly flowers
  • Buy organic
  • Tell your family and friends!

#BeeFact: A singular colony produces an average of 50 pounds of honey in a moderate season, and potentially up to 250 in a stellar one. And it's perfect to eat as-is. Raw honey, bottled without heat or stabilizers, contains layers of flavor and aroma matched only by fine wine and tea. Shelved without refrigeration, it's indefinitely edible.

Getting started with beekeeping and your first bees

There are many good suppliers of honey bees. Check your local beekeeping chapter or association for options. Green Bees purchases all new honey bee stock from our trusted supplier at Brooks Mill Farms in Midland, NC.
