Honey. Our raw, unfiltered Mendocino County wildflower honey is available in various sizes from 6 ounces to 1 quart. Our honey can be purchased at Ukiah Natural Foods Co-Op in Ukiah, Hopper’s Corner Store in Potter Valley, Pizza Etc in Redwood Valley, Greenwood Ridge Vineyards in Philo, and Princess Seafood in Fort Bragg. To place a special order, please contact us.
Beeswax. We have various quantities and qualities of beeswax available, depending on the time of year. We sell beeswax at $16/pound, and give a volume discount for 10 pounds or more.
Hive consulting. Have you always wanted a hive of your own, but don’t know where to start? For the beginning beekeeper, we are proud to help you get up and running with a backyard bee hive. This includes materials, hands-on training, and follow-up visits. We are also able to help with your existing hive such as harvesting honey, splitting, and troubleshooting any issues you may have. Carson consults for $100/hour plus $1/mile traveled from Ukiah.
Swarm removal. Swarms are how hives propagate naturally. The queen will fly out with 1/3 to 1/2 of the worker bees to look for a new home. During their search, they often land on branches or hang in a big ball to rest. If you see a swarm near your home or work, contact us! We are able to collect these swarms and provide a new, safe home for the beloved honeybee.
Hive removal. Bees don’t always choose the most convenient or safe places to build a hive. We have experience removing hives from walls, roofs, rafters, and other hard-to-reach places. If you would like to provide safe relocation for a hive that is near or in your home or place of work, we’re here to help. We charge for hive removal based on how complex the job is.
Please note that while we strive for a safe removal, sometimes the placement is such that the only option is to terminate the hive. This decision will only be reached after extensive consultation.
