About

Backyard Urban Beekeeping Made Simple

A good friend once told me “if you are going to build beehives, be the best, not second best, not down the list, be number one”. This has been Eco Bee Box’s focus since it’s inception in 2011.  The goal …to design a strong durable hive that is easy to use, is environmentally friendly, repairable, sustainable, and is a healthy environment for honeybees.  After exhaustingly trying 100s of ideas it hit me one day on a long road trip, the idea came.  A unique corner anyone could use.  This led to unique designs in beehives, that are world class and beautiful.  A perfect urban beehive for any yard, and any level of experience.

This container completes our system, from beginning to harvest. 

In addition to the container, help is needed to publish the first in depth historical book on how bees migrated to the western Territory of Deseret (now Utah).  I have spent considerable time researching and documenting this era and discovered many facts previously undocumented. 

Some interesting facts include: Brigham Young was a beekeeper as early as 1851; first commercial importer of bees into Utah and also later exported to Idaho and Montana; details of the early bee being described as a black bee later Italian bees replaced them; the types of beehives viewed as best for beekeepers in 19th century; sale of swarms in 1860's selling for $13 each; first documented importing of queens from Pennsylvania; in 1871 18,000lbs of bees were brought to Utah via rail car; excerpts of a beekeeper's diary from 1870;l early names in beekeeping and problems that vexed them; symbolism of the hive and it's relationship to a community; facts about how bees came to the west and by who; and so much more.

The publishing of this historic book is too high to cover alone. 

You can support this campaign also by purchasing an Evolution of Beekeeping T-Shirt, or an incredible Bee Carving.
