Pollination Services

We are a locally based pollination beekeeping business with about 500 to 600 hives. Our bees stay in Ventura County or Carpinteria, year-round, except for one month out of the year, they go to California’s Central Valley to pollinate almond trees. We are looking for properties that can host 50+ hives in Ventura County. Please submit a message below if interested in hosting our bees on your farm.

Honey for Sale

We are currently selling our jars of honey at the Ojai Community Farmers Market on Thursday afternoons, Farmer & The Cook, Rainbow Bridge and Westridge in Ojai. We also sell our honey in bulk in 5 gallon buckets or 55 gallon drums. Depending on the time of year we have five types of honey available – orange blossom, avocado, wildflower, sage and raspberry. The orange blossom is from East End Ojai, avocado from Carpinteria, wildflower and sage from Lake Casitas area and raspberry from Oxnard/Camarillo area.

On average between 20-40% colonies die off every year due to a number of different issues that plague bees (pesticides, varroa mites, beetles, nosema, starvation).

Proper care can lower the die off rate to less than 10%.
