About Us
We are a mother daughter team, Gail and Rebecca Conroy, who keep bee hives in Pinellas county Florida at three apiaries. We fell in love with bees in 2006 with our first hive on the roof. Our bees pollinate millions of flowers within a 5 mile radius, connecting us intimately to the ecosystem we live in. We keep natural small cell bees which are more adapted to warm weather and with their smaller size are able to pollinate different flowers than larger, more commonly kept bees. Before keeping bees we did not know that many pests can assail them and many beekeepers end up using chemical and other treatments in their hives. We have chosen not to do this and use no treatments of any kind in our hives because we believe in working with the bees naturally and holistically. We manage bee diseases and pests without chemicals and we don’t feed soy pollen substitute, corn syrup or sugar. We carefully harvest pure honey by hand and always leave our bees plenty for themselves. The honey our bees produce is local, as contaminate free as possible, raw, and unfiltered.
