Beek Supply Co. is committed to beekeeping education and reversing the decline in honey bee population.
We donate 5% of our profits to the Honeybee Conservancy, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of bees and inspiring people and communities to act as stewards for the bees and their natural environment.
Because bees matter
Honey bee pollination is responsible, directly or indirectly, for about a third of the food we eat. Over the last several years, bee populations have been declining at alarming rates because of CCD (Colony Collapse Disorder), winter die-offs, and other factors.
Heavy pesticide use (especially in the US), shrinking habitat, and hybrid plantings that are less nutritious to bees are all culprits.
Without bees, the face of our planet and our dining tables will be changed forever. As custodians of our planet, ensuring that bees continue to survive and thrive is everyone's responsibility.
Already a beekeeper?
Whether you're a commercial producer or backyard beekeeper, the most important thing you can do is grow and tend your apiary.
When you can, be an ambassador for the bees in your local community. Join your local beekeeping organizations and educate your family, friends and neighbors on the joys and rewards of beekeeping.
Not a beekeeper? You can still help:
- Plant flowers and herbs that bees love in your yard.
- Select heirloom vegetables when planting your garden.
- Donate to one of these organizations.
- Buy a shirt!
