About

Stretch Goal!

The goal is 5000$ to cover the full cost of 5 full hives, bees and equipment.


Pollination Power

Here is a fun fact. Did you know that up to 40% of the food that we eat needs to be pollinated by bees and in the past few years the population of bees are on a steady decline due to a multitude of reasons. This is the major reason why I want to do my part to help to save these beautiful and important insects. Your support will help to establish 5 hives and bring back some of the lost pollinators population.

Goal

I want to help these funny, cute and hardworking girls. A setup of a four story hive costs around 800$ including the bees. These 5 hives will be setup on a plot of land of 300 acres. This apiary is secluded away from everything (cars, people, pollution) and close to everything (wild flowers, trees, streams). That's what I call paradise. 

Once the hive is fully established, wich could take one full year or more, I will start collecting some honey. There is nothing like tasting pure, raw, non treated honey. This honey will be sent to the supporters of this cause.

Risks and challenges

PRODUCTION DELAYS

It is not guaranteed to get honey on the first year. Old beekeepers say to leave the honey to the bees for the first year. That is what I plan to do to encourage their survival.

Predators

Since the bee yard will be secluded on a 300 acres natural paridise there could be a chance of animal damage on the hives causing their death. This brings me to say that these girls will be protected by an electric fence (covered in the start-up costs) to keep predators out, but their survival is not guaranteed.
