Adopt a Bee

Adopt-a-bee in one of our hives. At the start and end of the season we have to feed our bees and maintain their health throughout the summer for diseases and pests. With each hive having up to 60,000 bees this can be quite a task (and cost) in itself so please help us with our overall project in supporting the bees. You will receive a thank you email for helping us with this.
