Tom and I both grew up in the small agricultural community of Red Bluff, California. Our families knew each other, but I didn’t meet Tom until after his military service.
Before Tom had even returned home from the Marines, he had worked out a business plan to become a beekeeper. Two months before we were married, we had purchased our first hives and entered into the world of beekeeping.
One of the things we love the most about beekeeping is that, with hard work and perseverance, a person can build a successful business. Through hands-on experience, self-education, and great advice from generational beekeepers, along with a lot of ups and downs, we have come to a place where we can proudly say we are beekeepers. As we managed our hives, we came to truly understand how quality boxes can affect the strength and safety of our colonies.
We continually pursue better ways to manufacture hive equipment and strive to increase the quality of our products. After nearly five years of beekeeping and manufacturing beehive equipment, we produce higher quality products because we use our own hive equipment with our own bees on a daily basis. We struggle with the same issues facing all beekeepers, and we strive to provide the best quality boxes for the most reasonable price.
