Lenora Beekeeping Ideals

We focus on connecting our honeybees with as much wild flora as possible, limiting the amount of supplemental feeding, while still recognizing that it is necessary during nectar dearth periods.

 

At Lenora Bee, we believe in breeding a strong population of local honeybees with genetic stock selected for our area and climate. We do treat our bees for a variety of pests and diseases and our treatments of preference are organic. Most of all, we believe in supporting local beekeepers!
