Wow. I am totally blown away by everyone's support. You are such an amazing group of individuals. Thank you all so much!

Now it's time to roll up the old sleeves and get to work! I've got rewards to make, plans to lay and hives to order and build.

I'll keep you updated. Bee good!

      It's a cold, snowy day here in central IL, but your message warmed my heart! I feel like, through you, we're taking another small step toward saving wholesome, small-producer food sources. Thanks for all your hard work.

    This is the "apitherapy package." None of the other rewards go with this one. Just bee products that some people use as health aids. You will get two pints of honey, a package of propolis and a package of freeze dried pollen. My honey is "rough filtered" meaning it has small propolis and wax particles in it from crush and strain harvesting that is strained through cheesecloth (you likely won't notice, but it's in there). It is always raw, so it will tend to crystallize. The bees will be in southwest Michigan surrounded by woodland. Many hay fields are in the harvest zone and very little, if any, sprayed monoculture that the bees will visit is nearby.
