Have you ever wanted to keep your own bees, but couldn't find the time, space, or money? Our innovative adopt-a-hive program allows you to experience the thrill and satisfaction of helping the bees without having to get stung or invest in a bunch of equipment. Plus, you get honey & wax products (all made by us)!
We recognize that beekeeping is not for everyone, but everyone needs honeybees! And here at the homestead, we could always use a hand as we work to provide local honey! We want to give you and/or your family an opportunity to share in the rewards and responsibility of maintaining a hive in our apiary.
What you get:
When you adopt you will receive a welcome package. Included in the package is your first jar of honey, beeswax lip balm, beeswax candles, information about us and our bees, a name plaque to name the queen of your hive, certificate of adoption, and a hive box to decorate however you please.
Monthly you will receive a 1lb jar of honey. At the 6 month mark you will receive another lib balm, candles, wax melts, and other luxury wax products (to be determined).
You will also receive updates about your hive and photos throughout the year. As well as an optional, scheduled visit to your hive, and special discounts on additional purchases of honey and wax products on each months delivery.
As these products are hand delivered, we ask that you are local. We would like to keep it in a 30 mile radius from Elkhart.
Where your money goes:
Helping us expand our apiary with the purchase of bees (They come in a 3lb package with a queen, other wise known as an artificial swarm). Your money also helps us to feed the bees in the early months when there is nothing for them to forage and in the winter months as well.
Now through January 31 take advantage of our early bird special! $250
February 1 - March 31 is full price at $300.
Receive your welcome package when you purchase and monthly deliveries will start in April and go untill February 2019.
