My mission is to protect and help all pollinators, leave less of a footprint on this plant while producing products as close to nature intended and promoting better understanding of people through bees.
I want my nieces and nephews to have future that includes living on a healthier planet. No good comes from ruining the earth. I personally enjoy being in nature and like it when I see all types of bugs, which is a sign of a healthy ecosystem. We need all sorts of bugs and pollinators on earth. So, I am doing what I can to get back to simple practices that impact our environment positively. Honey Bees happen to be a very useful tool for success. No other insect can be directed to pollinate a specific crop! And no other insect in the process creates a delicious food product full of healthy benefits when eaten.
ARE YOU READY TO HELP AND SUPPORT?
I know my bees behavior/health by sound, smell and movement and even rarely need to use a smoker to calm them down. I never introduce chemicals into their home. I am zen with my bees.
Since honey bees travel in search of flowers for their food supply, we can not promise that all farms, gardens and lawns in the area are chemical free. As a matter of fact urban centers are known for overusing pesticides so that the nitrate level is 40 to 60% stronger than is needed to the kill weeds for that manicured lawn.
Despite the behavior of other people, Bee Mindful has averaged only 20 percent colony deaths per year. Given that the industry average is as high as 45.5% and we have been raising our bees in Iowa, which is considered a chemical death zone. We look forward to our results in Rhode Island as we expand our business to New England.
