There are a few outside near the entrance of the store, but it safe to come in.

Sending a shout out to our business neighbor Polaris Press in Tackett's Mill.
They designed our new business cards, and they came out better than we had expected - we couldn't be any happier now.
If you need new business cards, labels, signs, etc., we highly recommend them for your next project.

Load testing the observation hive to make sure that it doesn't fall when it's loaded with bees.

We'll take it down this weekend and get it cleaned up and ready for bees in April.

Update for February 2024

There's a few more changes to the store. We were given permission to put our flags up in front of the new store and mount the "Bees Crossing Sign" out front as well.

We've also added another new honey to our inventory - Sister Bees Honey. They come in 3 flavors: Blueberry, Bourbon Infused and Tequila & Lime Infused. We have samples at the front counter, just ask the next time you visit.

Last month's Honey was Trejo's Sweet Heat Honey. It was a big hit and we had a hard time keeping it in stock, but more is on the way. You can also sample this honey at the front counter.

Each month we're going to feature a new product in the store, whether it's honey or Beekeeping equipment and we'll post it here as well.

01/20/2024 - Time for another long overdue update:

We're still unpacking and setting everything up in the store. We've also started setting up the framework for the Observation Beehive.
The bees should be back in the Spring (mid to late April).

More things are going up on the walls too.

12/28/2023 - Updated

We are open today - our neon "Open" sign stopped working last night, so we have a small temporary sign next to the door, until we can repair or replace it.

Some good news:
The store signage is being relocated to the new store today and the pathway for the Observation Hive is being cut in as well. The bees will be back in the store Spring 2024.
