We are a small beekeeping operation located in Squamish, BC. In our apiaries, the long term health of our bees is the most important to us-not honey production. We believe that the future of beekeeping lies in breeding locally adapted bees over time to rely less on chemical treatments from beekeepers. We employ integrated pest management practices to keep our bees healthy, relying first on non-chemical methods.
