Who We Are
Crown Bees prides itself in being a social, environmental, and economically sustainable company with a long range mission to create 25% more food for the world through using native, hole-nesting bees.
We are a company of individuals who care about our future. Each of us has our own expertise whether in digital media, customer service, product innovation, project management, farming, bee raising, or lean operations. We enjoy each other and work well as a team, sharing workloads as we go.
What We Do
Today, we sell native bees and supplies online, at nurseries and hardware stores, and with farmers. This year we are expanding to find native bees with conservation organizations.
Sustainability and ethical practices are more than just words to us. Our wood comes from sustainable forests. Our nesting material for the bees are all natural and the right size for best bee health. We attempt to keep our carbon footprint as low as possible and so source all products locally.
Rather than duplicate efforts, we team with researchers across the world that focus on native bee species. We openly share all we learn to our followers in our BeeMail newsletter and website. Raising bees for growing food is something all gardeners and farmers should learn!
While only 10 years old, Crown Bees is a “doing” company. Where we find missing information or products, we research it or design/build it. Our current “missing” item is about 1,000 native bees across North America!
