The word sustainability is often used vaguely, and with so many murky definitions it can be hard to know what's actually intended. Here is what we mean when we say sustainability.
We don't want to harm the forest or nearby communities while helping bees. We know our customers feel the same way. We source wood that is FSC-UK certified and responsibly grown and harvested. We believe that beekeepers care about the environment and are committed to doing their part to help. We think beekeeping suppliers should do the same by producing sustainable hives.
CHOOSING OUR WOOD WISELY
OUR LOCAL TIMBER YARD
USING EVERY SCRAP
We work extremely hard to use every scrap and shaving left over as we create hives. We use these pieces to produce one-off birdhouses, mason bee houses, wooden feeders, and extra cedar shavings for quilt boxes. We are always working to develop products and accessories our customers ask for, in a way that utilizes every bit of the wood we’ve brought in, and in keeping with the design aesthetics we are known for. We aslo use all of our wood shavings as bedding for our animals.
