Aunt Bea's Apiary
About Aunt Bea's Apiary:
We started working with bees in the fall of 2013. Although we had no beekeeping experience, we wanted to do something good for the environment. We plunged full steam ahead and purchased a small hobby farm, beekeeping supplies, and expanded our gardening endeavors. Working closely with nature has had a profound impact on us. We are seeing the Earth with a new set of eyes.
Our planet is facing a pretty long list of challenges including pollution, global warming, water contamination, drought and of course, the staggering loss of our worldâ€™s pollinators. It is with great love and intent to make the world a better place that we have formed the 501c3 non-profit organization â€œAunt Beaâ€™s Apiaryâ€ to serve southeast Nebraska.
On our farm, we have created an educational center for hosting field trips, community groups, and families who wish to learn more about how they can help the environment. Through these endeavors, we hope people will come to love and appreciate these fascinating insects as much as we do. Bees truly are an integral part of our food system and the survival of the human population.
We are a treatment free apiary. We do not use any chemicals in our beehives. We strive to use organic ingredients in our skin care products, but occasionally have to use conventional when organic is not available or is cost prohibitive.
Honey: Our honey is completely raw and never heated. We do not pasturize. Your honey will contain particles of pollen and wax. The bees are our first priority and we extract only what is surplus ensuring they have plenty of honey to survive winter.
