Home & Welcome

We’re so glad you’ve come to visit! We preserve and support the natural behavior of wild honeybees through practices that allow our bees their “bee-ness.” As bee shepherds, keepers, and stewards, we ask ourselves, “What do bees want?” and we endeavor to give them that. We encourage and celebrate swarming, natural comb building, smaller hives, and minimal intrusion. We welcome those who keep bees, who maintain pollinator gardens, and all who love bees.

This site is also the home site for our Preservation Beekeeping Club in SouthWest Washington. We offer classes, retreats, special events, and mentoring to new beekeepers. And we are innovating all the time with hive styles and methods of working with our bees. We welcome you to join us in exploring “what bees want.”
