Colors of Honey from 2012

Our honeybees are allowed to build comb naturally, as they would in the wild. We use two types of box style hives: Warre with observation windows and conventional boxes. We feel strongly about the conservation of honeybees and that they are the backbone of agriculture. We even remove wayward honeybee colonies from buildings. Honeybees unfortunately are being plagued at this time by many devastating pests. We use an integrated pest management system (see below) to help the bees cope with these killers.

Our honey is available by mail and is sold locally at several stores. Our Honey is packaged in several different sizes and style containers.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) System
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest control methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment.

The IPM approach can be applied to both agricultural and non-agricultural settings, such as the home, garden, and workplace. IPM takes advantage of all appropriate pest management options including, but not limited to, the judicious use of pesticides. In contrast, organic food production applies many of the same concepts as IPM but limits the use of pesticides to those that are produced from natural sources, as opposed to synthetic chemicals.
