About Us

Who We Are

Hi, I am Drew Bradshaw here at the apiary, grandpa got me started tending the bees at 5 years old and I have been in love and working with them ever since and I love being able to share that experience.

I’ve been backyard farming since I was a child on a small hobby farm, in 2018 we had a really good harvest and started selling honey at my favorite coffee shop the Mad Bean in Madison NC.

We know the importance of our honey bees and pollinators and we want to bring them to you to be able to share our knowledge and passion for keeping bees.


Top Benefits To Keeping Bees

Pollination: Bees are essential pollinators for many plants and crops, and by keeping bees, you can help support the growth and biodiversity of your local environment. 

Honey Production: Beekeeping allows you to produce your own honey, which is not only delicious but also has a range of health benefits. 

Sustainable Agriculture: By keeping bees, you can support sustainable agriculture practices that are beneficial for both the environment and the local community. 

Educational Opportunities: Beekeeping can be a great way to teach children and adults about the importance of bees and the role they play in our ecosystem. 

Supporting Local Economies: Beekeeping can be a great way to support local economies by producing honey, wax, and other bee products that can be sold locally. 

Stress Relief: Beekeeping can be a calming and therapeutic activity that allows you to connect with nature and take a break from the stresses of daily life. 

Community Building: Beekeeping can be a great way to connect with other beekeepers and members of your local community who share an interest in beekeeping and sustainability. 

Increased Garden Yields: By keeping bees, you can improve the health and yield of your garden and other plants in your area through increased pollination.
