We are excited to share our story, experiences, products, and services, with you. Thank you for joining us, and sharing your generous support along the way.
BeeKind Honey Bees
Each year, we harness the reproductive energy of our honey bees, in order to produce Nucleus (nuc) colonies for sale to; replace winter loss, help new beekeepers get started, and to increase operation size, as well as rear a limited supply of mated queens, with a focus on kind, gentle behavior, and strong honey production traits.
2021 Raw Honey
Our 2021 Raw Honey, 'Nude Harvest' is now available through our online shop. Why Nude, you ask? Well, we are just finishing our product labels, so we are on the bare/ undressed side for a bit longer. After all, it is what's inside that counts the most!
Beekeeping for Everyone
Our ShareHive Program was created for all people to enjoy local, raw honey from the wide variety of nectars found here in our area.
The ShareHive Program allows you to participate in (and learn about) the beekeeping season without being responsible for any of the ongoing seasonal management, equipment, or providing space.
Our beekeeping experience began from a humble start as a hobbyist beekeeper, with a passion for sharing and teaching others.
Over the years, with support from from the beekeeping community, our interest in beekeeping has grown and evolved into operating Revelstoke's first full commercial apiary.
From the start, we have been excited to share our journey and lessons with others from all ages.
We continue to offer learning opportunities from; youth extension programs, (school groups, non-profit organizations such as Revelstoke Local Food, and Columbia Basin Environmental Education Network, Wild Voices), to multi-day interactive Beginner Beekeeping Courses, a Beekeeping Mentorship Program, and even a ShareHive Program designed to include you in the beekeeping season when you have limited time or space to take up beekeeping with an annual reward of a guaranteed honey harvest.
What other say...
"I wanted to let you know that my nucs did amazingly well this spring/ summer. They have produced an abundance of honey and I have yet to find a mite (maybe because all the others nearby have your bees).
"Thank you for your recent honey delivery. It was easy, fast and absolutely delicious!. Will reorder again soon."
"It's much appreciated!. I can't wait to make some candles from my beeswax... the honey is amazing and the delivery was super speedy!"
The ordering was smooth and easy for a non literate computer user and I thank you for the quick efficient service. What a lovely little extra... bee pollen. Have not used that for years. Many thanks.
Amazing product & the service was impeccable! Thanks BeeKind!!
