I was born in Port Elizabeth (now Gqeberha), South Africa. I’m an outgoing person who is both introverted and extroverted depending who I’m with. I enjoy meeting and interacting with new people because I believe this is how you learn and grow as a person. I’m forever looking for new adventures or challenges. I’m a go-getter, never afraid to fail because we learn more from our failures and build character from them. I believe one is never too old to learn something new things. “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks” doesn’t apply in my life. I enjoy the outdoors especially hiking, which has exposed me to some of the most beautiful hiking trails in South Africa. I also love taking game drives and explore our nature especially the animals in their natural habitats. I haven’t had the opportunity to travel beyond the borders of my country. Hopefully one day I’ll travel the world, meet different people and get to experience diverse cultures and cuisines. I had dreams of becoming a medical doctor but due to financial difficulties I settled for a National Diploma in Biomedical Technology. At least I got to work in the medical environment with doctors and other medical personnel for about 5 years. I realised that working in a laboratory was not suitable for my personality because I love people, I enjoy interacting with different people. I enrolled for a Diploma in Marketing and that led me to the pharmaceutical industry where I combined both my medical background and the marketing qualification. I worked in Sales and Marketing departments. I also had the opportunity to turn my passion for fashion into a business adventure and started my online clothing store which was a very exciting and challenging adventure. I learned a lot about importing and e-commerce. When motherhood happened and I took a break to become a stay home mom. I got involved in fitness and nutrition business. I realised that the entrepreneurship bug has got me and needed to empower myself to avoid mistakes I made in my previous business adventures, that is when I decided to register for a BCom degree in entrepreneurship via Unisa, which what I’m currently busy with. I am also teaching English as a foreign language online on freelance basis. I plan to also learn one or two foreign languages as I plan to travel the world in the not-so-distant future. I’m excited about the future and learning more in this university of life.

I grew up in a small farm community in the Eastern Cape. The world I knew then was only what was surrounding me; the farm, farm lands, livestock, bushes and forest and two or three other farm dweller families. That was my reality, no big cities or big townships. I never knew anything about big rivers, oceans, lots of animals, no idea of big mountains etc. When I grew up my parents moved to the city, things changed, it was a total new world. My world got so complex and vast. It was when I started visiting beaches, zoo, animal sanctuaries, visit nature reserves and botanical gardens and travelling by boats, ships and fly in aeroplanes. I am now an avid traveller, I also go for walks in the natural environments, listen to birds singing and so on. The world has so much to offer for those who grab these opportunities. As a family man I often visit with my family to city parks, nature reserves, and lots of community projects that take care of animals and the environment. I am both an environmental and social activist, and I have spent most of my life either being involved directly in the protection of fauna and flora or training those who are involved in the same. When I travel or visit other countries I visit mostly destinations that would offer natural and aesthetic beauty to tourists. I also have a huge interest in climate change as it is, among others, influenced by human behaviour, more especially air pollution. I am also interested in religion, more especially African Traditional religion. The reason for my interest in this branch of religion is because it is mostly nature based. In other words it is religion that does not separate between humans and nature. For the adherents of this religion life is one and God manifests himself through nature and therefore taking care of nature is a religious duty. As an environmental and social activist I am involved either through making financial contribution or contributing my time in community projects of different kinds. These projects would include contributing shoes to primary school learners who have no shoes, contributing money to soup kitchens for crèches and unemployed job seekers and many other projects. I am hoping to sustain these initiatives to a level where they can help more people.
Rome wasn't built in a day. I’m of a very friendly nature and love to be with people who aren’t selfish. I am ambitious and will do anything to achieve my aim - "The Universe applauds action not thought" I’m of a very adventurous nature and love to find good in everything I see. There are many things that make us depressed or upset, but that doesn’t mean that we stop living. You dust yourself off, honor the difficult times for the lesson it taught you, and walk away stronger and wiser. Independence and confidence were key in my life from a young age with venturing to the UK straight after school, and eventually ending up in Cape Town as my dream destination to live a happy balanced life where beautiful sunsets are part of your everyday life, and reminds you that dreams do come true. My professional life started as a labourer painting parks in the dire UK winter weather to Insurance consultant for a huge corporate company. Getting to know me over time it became clear that I adapt quickly and take pride in everything I do as I strive to leave everything and everyone better than you found them. Covid19 and the drastic changes that came with it has been the most challenging and rewarding time of my life. With a system that failed us all in so many ways, living a financially stable life is nearly impossible but forced me to get grounded with nature and realize that the best things in life are truly free. My senses for nature, animals, and my overall humility enhanced drastically. We are all just reminded once again that nothing ever goes as planned and that losing everything including your mind might be necessary to make you realize what a strong, resilient, and galactic species we truly are. Realizing this, I am now more than ever ready to spread love and kindness whilst challenging myself with new adventures that push me out of my comfort zone. There is no other time than the present that truly matters. And in this moment I am excited to change my reality and the lives of those around me.
Our Mission is hives before honey. Texas Beeworks is in the business of helping bees and beekeepers thrive. We focus on the health and wellness of the hive, and we manage every Texas Beeworks colony with the mission of maintaining a healthy honeybee population. Our goal is to increase the bee population by placing and maintaining hives across the Lone Star State and by raising awareness about honeybees through education, advocacy, and public outreach. Texas Beeworks offers hive placement and management services, beekeeping classes and education, private lessons for new beekeepers, live bee removals, and more. Texas Beeworks is the most recognized name in bee removals in Texas, and we proudly offer low-cost, bee-friendly, chemical-free honey bee removals in Austin and surrounding areas. Our bee removal work has been featured on CNN, the BBC, on The Today Show, Good Morning America, The Ellen Show and more! In most cases, we are able to remove the bees that same day or schedule a time that works for you. Every bee removal is different, but our bee removal plan is always based around what will be the best for the safety of the people who use the space, the general public, and the health and wellness of the colony. Unlike many bee removal companies, we never use a vacuum to remove bees from their hive. And after we remove the bees, they are relocated to one our 25+ bee sanctuaries in the Austin area so that the bees can continue their important work in a place that is both safer for you and for them.
Under The Mango Tree is committed to sustainability, from which all our other values take form. Sustainability means many things to us: from investing in long-term relationships with our partners farmer, customer & supplier to ensuring our practices benefit the environment. Bringing you honey from the various parts of India harvested organically partnered with some of the local farmers, to get it right to your home! Our founder Vijaya Pastala’s passion lies in developing community based, pro-poor approaches for environmentally sustainable economic development in India. With a long career in the agricultural space, she realized that long-term linkages with poor farmers improve quality of life of communities, tremendously. Under The Mango Tree (UTMT) is more than just Organic Honey and Bees. It’s also about people. At UTMT, we’ve always believed in building and empowering a community. Starting from today, we’d like to give you a glimpse into who we are, what we stand for, how we got here and where we’re headed with your support and encouragement.
UTMT Society founded in 2009 is registered under the Societies Act and the Maharashtra Public Trust Act. UTMT Society promotes beekeeping with indigenous bees like "Apis cerana indica" and Trigona to increase agricultural productivity and enhance biodiversity, incomes and livelihoods of marginal farmers in India. Four out of five foods we eat – fruits, vegetables, pulses and oilseeds – require bees for pollination. Honey bees are the most important among all pollinators. Through its work with indigenous bees, UTMT Society seeks to improve biodiversity management and ecosystem services for small holders, a cost effective way to adapt to climate change. This is particularly important for India’s small and marginal farmers, who comprise 86% of India’s farmers. UTMT Society works in tribal areas in Gujarat, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh in India. As of 2019, we have our presence in 175+ villages spread across 14 districts.
The Honeybee Conservancy was founded in 2009 by Guillermo Fernandez in response to the news that bees across the globe were in crisis. In fall of 2020, The Honeybee Conservancy relaunched as The Bee Conservancy to better capture our work protecting all bees and securing environmental and food justice through education, research, habitat creation, and advocacy. As a child immigrant from Cuba, Guillermo grew up in a crowded, multi-ethnic urban area where one-third of the community lived in poverty. His neighborhood, like so many others, was a food desert; fresh fruit and vegetables were near impossible to find, supermarkets stocked mostly processed food, and local restaurants were all fast food chains. There was little-to-no green space, just concrete as far as the eye could see, and the community suffered from rampant health issues that were the result of poor nutrition and degraded environment. Decades later, Guillermo started The Bee Conservancy for two reasons. First, he wanted to help save the bees, who pollinate 1 in 3 bites of food we eat and are vital to healthy ecology. Second, he hoped to find ways to empower underserved communities like the one he grew up in to produce healthy food and build green spaces. Our initiatives, such as our flagship program Sponsor-a-Hive, have served hundreds of thousands of people across the United States, and protected an estimated 10 million bees to date.
We are a group of scientists from various university departments and agricultural experiment stations, and collectively we share expertise in insect pollinators, pest management, analytical chemistry, and economics. We’ve come together on a five-year research project to help environmental horticulture growers navigate how to manage insect and mite pests while protecting bees. We also have a group of stakeholders who act as an advisory board for our research. Our stakeholders include beekeepers, garden associations, crop protection companies, nurseries, a government agency, and non-profits. This website is a place to communicate updates and findings from our research project, as well as a place to provide additional materials for growers and the wider public. [/box]
John Baxter, Operation Honey Bee founder has a long history in the mattress industry where he was able to disrupt the industry through online marketing and advertising over the last 18 years. After helping create 13 successful multi million dollar startups, John was able to shift his focus to other passions including creating situation that would help foster change and help the future of the world. This includes creating a mattress called the Anti Aging Bed that is set to change the entire category of sleep. John is a capable visionary, a health and wellness advocate, and has focused on creating "bee safe" products and pushing for safe crop sciences. John was Fox News Carolina's bee guru, a bee keeper, natural health and sleep advocate, martial arts who created the Bee style Tai Chi, a patented inventor and serial entrepreneur. Also he helped create more bee awareness than any other bee non profit worldwide with over a billion impressions with the help of a Disney company. John wanted to create a conscious movement that was much larger than himself. His calling was saving the bees, he witnessed the saddest event in his life, watching the death of bees due to Pesticides and Herbicides on his property. He understands how industry works, he was able to beat single handily a billion dollar corporation in Federal court, and successfully settle with another. His fight is to make industries change for the better and create a more sustainable environment for future generations. All these events changed his life and his outlook of connecting the world through bees. He is here to inspire others to foster lasting change. At Operation Honey Bee it is our mission to promote and advocate for sustainable agricultural practices that reduce the multi-layered geopathic stress that kills bees. Advocating for quick and positive change from corporations whose practices kill bees. Our ultimate goal is to stop the extinction and restore the sacred pollinator of our foods. The Honey Bee is most important animal for human life on this planet, we must act now!
The Australian Honey Bee Industry Council (AHBIC) aims to maximise the efficient use of industry resources and funds to ensure the long term economic viability, security and prosperity of the Australian Honey Bee industry in Australia. We foster, promote, enhance and protect the interests of the Australian Honey Bee Industry and the vitality of its members and represent industry policy at all levels of government, private enterprise and the public. The Australian Honey Bee Industry Council has established an independently developed and audited food safety program – B-Qual Australia Pty Limited. Detailed information about this quality assurance program is available via the link below. The Australian Queen Bee Breeding program (AQBBP) was established to help the beekeeping industry and having that pool of genetic material lends itself to having evaluations carried out in many areas. For the past 3 years, the Australian Honey Bee Industry Council (AHBIC) and Plant Health Australia (PHA) have been working to implement effective biosecurity arrangements for beekeepers around Australia. Ensuring the honey bee industry has the capacity to better manage established pests, and to have surveillance in place for early detection of exotic pests such as Varroa mite is critical to the future sustainability and viability of the Australian honey bee and pollination industry.

Let our founder, Mikaila, explain the origin of Me & the Bees Lemonade: When I was just four, I got stung by a bee and then got stung again less than a week later! Naturally, I didn't enjoy the bee stings at all and I became scared of bees. But then after doing some research about them, I became fascinated and learned all about what they do for me and our ecosystem. Around that same time, my family encouraged me to make a product for a couple of children's business competitions - the Acton Children’s Business Fair and Austin Lemonade Day. So I put on my thinking cap. I thought about some ideas. While I was thinking, my Great Granny Helen, who lived in Cameron, South Carolina, sent my family a 1940s cookbook, which included her special recipe for flaxseed lemonade. So then I thought, what if I make something that helps honeybees and uses my Great Granny Helen's lemonade recipe? I decided to give her beloved lemonade a new twist by adding honey from bees, instead of only sugar. That's how Be Sweet Lemonade was born! However, we had to change the name due to a copyright issue so we decided to call it Me & the Bees Lemonade because we give a percentage of sales to help save the bees. We are now celebrating more than 10 years in “buzzness!” Mikaila started her lemonade at youth entrepreneurial events and at her lemonade stand out in front of her home, donating a percentage of the profits to local and international organizations fighting hard to save the honeybees. That is why she touts: “Buy a Bottle…Save a Bee.” Now at age 15, her little idea from more than 10 years ago continues to grow and grow...by more than 500 percent since the company’s humble Austin, Texas-based beginnings. Today, the award-winning, ready-to-drink Me & the Bees Lemonades in five refreshing flavors is buzzing off the shelves of Whole Foods Market, The Fresh Market, World Market, H-E-B stores across Texas and Kroger stores in Houston. It is also available at a growing number of restaurants, food trailers and natural food delivery companies. When not traveling for speaking events to share her stories of being a social entrepreneur, leading workshops on how to save the bees, or participating in social entrepreneurship panels, you can find Mikaila coming up with ideas to help the Healthy Hive Foundation, a nonprofit to further help the mission of saving the pollinators.
Mann Lake Ltd. is the leader in quality manufacturing, innovation, and customer service in the beekeeping industry. Whether you are just starting out in the world of beekeeping or run a full-scale, commercial beekeeping business, we have all of the top-of-the-line products and services you require.

Regardless of the number of hives you keep, we at Mann Lake have the same goal in mind as you... to keep this natural pollinator flourishing. Jack and Betty Thomas started Mann Lake Ltd. in 1983 because they couldn't find the quality beekeeping supplies they needed for their own beekeeping hobby. They began selling supplies out of their garage but quickly found a lot of other beekeepers were under-served as well. Realizing the need was bigger than their garage, they moved the business from their home to downtown Hackensack. Since then, we’ve expanded to California, Pennsylvania, Texas, Florida, Kentucky and Oregon. The Mann Lake family continues to grow to better serve its customers with the addition of Kelley Beekeeping out of Kentucky. We are proud to offer not only another location for Mann Lake customers to shop but to include the great traditions and products of Kelley Beekeeping into our family. We’ve also branched out into the exciting world of poultry to provide you both with the knowledge and products of both the birds and the bees! Mann Lake acquired Stromberg’s Chicks & Gamebirds to offer the latest and greatest birds, poultry products and feeds on the market today. Stromberg’s is also a Minnesota based company with a history expanding 100 years!
New York Bee Sanctuary protects the bees of New York State and across the US through Conservation, Advocacy, Research, and Education. Honey bees and wild pollinators exert a profound influence on the health of our local ecology and farm communities. By pollinating flowers they enrich the biodiversity and stability of ecosystems. Bees are some of Earth's most important organisms, yet they are threatened by habitat loss, pesticides, herbicides and disease. New York Bee Sanctuary protects bees while helping while helping individuals, institutions, parks and cities connect with their environment.We are building a wildlife sanctuary for honey bees and pollinators in New York State, with programs to promote conservation of our vital insect friends all across the US.
The World Bee Project CIC is the first private initiative in the world that remotely monitors bees to research the pollinator and pollination crisis from a global perspective. It supports, connects and amplifies new technologies and scientific study to improve the health and wellbeing of bees and other pollinators. The innovation can play a significant role in helping to mitigate the threats to food security and biodiversity and create predictive models to ameliorate potential future stresses. The World Bee Project is developing data driven innovative solutions that address pollinator health challenges in cities as well as in smallholder farms and agriculture and food supply chains. Intensive farming, harmful pesticides, overpopulation, urban sprawl, loss of floral habitats, deforestation and climate change are all placing devastating pressures on pollinators. The World Bee Project addresses the need to improve understanding of the varying pressures on bees in different regions of the world. The World Bee Project uses Artificial Intelligence (AI), data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT), and works with local communities and global organisations to merge social, environmental and economic benefits to positively impact the future of Pollinators, People, and the Planet.
Since its foundation in 2009, the Wheen Bee Foundation has established itself as Australia’s premier, not-for-profit organisation supporting honey bee research and development. Its founder, Gretchen Wheen, was a well-known commercial beekeeper specializing in the supply of quality queen bees for local and overseas markets. Wheen recognised the fundamental link between honey bees and food security, and was concerned about the growing threats to the beekeeping industry. Before she died she donated her farm and other resources to establish the Wheen Bee Foundation, with the aim of supporting and developing research, innovation, training and communication to ensure a viable beekeeping industry and protect our food supply. The Foundation actively works to attract donations to enable further research and innovation projects to achieve its mission of food security through bee security. The Wheen Bee Foundation is registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC).
The Purple Hive Project is an initiative by B honey and Bega Cheese Limited. B honey is committed to supporting the local honey industry by helping protect honey bees (Apis mellifera) from the significant threat of Varroa Destructor (Varroa mite) arriving in Australia. Varroa destructor is a tiny mite that is crippling honey bee colonies around the world, which could have a devastating effect on our honey industry and Australian agriculture more broadly. Australia is the only populated continent in the world that has not been impacted by Varroa destructor, but its potential arrival in Australia is a very real threat. If Varroa destructor were to establish itself here in Australia, it could have a devastating affect on our honey and pollination dependant industries. Honey bees play a significant role in the pollination of food crops in Australia – some crops are almost entirely reliant on honey bees for pollination. The Varroa mite, which has crippled bee colonies around the world, is threatening the viability of the Australian beekeeping industry. It is estimated that the healthy population of honey bees, and the pollination services they provide could be reduced by 90-100 per cent, with the potential to impact producers of crops such as almonds and apples who rely on the pollination services that bees provide. It is estimated that one in three mouthfuls of food that Australians consume relies on bee pollination. The Varroa mite is a tiny mite that attaches itself to honey bees and honey bee brood to the detriment of the honey bee and the honey bee colony. The Varroa mite is also known to transmit viruses amongst honey bees which can cause defects to the honey bee. The Purple Hive Project has been developed to monitor and send real time alerts to beekeepers and biosecurity if a Varroa mite is detected, allowing them to quarantine the hive and remove the Varroa mite in order to help protect Australia.
Pollinator Partnership Canada (P2C) is a registered charity dedicated to the protection and promotion of pollinators and their ecosystems through conservation, education, and research. Our ecoregional planting guides, Selecting Plants for Pollinators, are tailored to specific areas of Canada. Whether you are a farmer of many acres, land manager of a large tract of land, or a gardener with a small lot, you can increase the number of pollinators in your area by making conscience choices to include plants that provide essential habitat for pollinators. To make this program more widely accessible across Canada, we are currently developing the Pollinator Steward Certification training so that trainees can take it online! Our Bee Friendly Farming (BFF) programs recognize, engage, and support BFF participants and pollinators everywhere. The BFF program has three categories that allow for engagement with all participants in pollinator conservation while addressing their landscape goals: Bee Friendly Farming CERTIFIED, Bee Friendly Farming PARTNER, and Bee Friendly Farming GARDEN. Our Bee Smart™ School Garden and Curriculum Kit is a great tool to teach your students about the importance of pollinators and how they are connected to our food and environment!
When it was first launched, this website was a joint project between Pesticide Action Network and Beyond Pesticides. The site — originally made possible by funding from the CERES Foundation — was part of our collective campaign to support bees and other pollinators being harmed by commonly used pesticides. While our collaborative work continues, this site is now solely operated by PAN. At Pesticide Action Network (PAN) North America, we work to create a just, thriving food system. For too long, pesticide and biotech corporations have dictated how we grow food, placing the health and economic burdens of pesticide use on farmers, beekeepers, farmworkers and rural communities. PAN works with those on the frontlines to tackle the pesticide problem — and reclaim the future of food and farming. Bees are in real trouble. In combination with other factors like habitat loss and disease, industrial agriculture’s heavy reliance on pesticides — particularly neonicotinoids — has contributed to dramatic declines in pollinator populations. Since 2006, commercial beekeepers have reported average annual losses of 29% – 45 %, with some losses up to 100%. This is unprecedented. While federal policymakers remain stuck on this issue, local communities have been stepping up to support bees and other pollinators. Across the country, people are creating pesticide-free “honey bee havens” with ample pollinator habitat and access to fresh water. From backyards to neighborhoods and cities, each haven helps protect the pollinators responsible for one in three bites of food we eat.
Built on land purchased in 2017 in Tyngsboro, Massachusetts, New England Beekeeping Supplies, Inc moved into the self-designed, one of a kind facility called The Colony on April 1st, 2019. After running their business from their home garage for 13 years, Rick and Sue Reault opened The Colony. The Colony is home to their family of companies, New England Beekeeping Supplies, Carlisle Honey and now Honeybound Meadery. Their facility continues the 300 year old tradition of Agriculture on the last parcel of land from the original Thompson Farm started in the early 1700’s. The Colony purchased the parcel from the Richardson Family who ran a Dairy Farm from the 1940’s to the 1980’s. The Colony offers a unique and one of a kind experience with any visit. It is a Beekeeping Facility unlike any other Beekeeping Businesses in the Country. Whether you are a beekeeper looking for support in managing your bees, a honey consumer wanting a variety of honey choices or a person looking for a bottle of mead, the oldest fermented beverage known to man, The Colony is a must visit!
The American Bee Journal was established in 1861 by Samuel Wagner and has been published continuously since that time, except for a brief period during the Civil War. The Journal has the honor of being the oldest English language beekeeping publication in the world. Today, Dadant and Sons has the privilege of publishing the American Bee Journal for subscribers throughout the world. Readership is concentrated among hobby and commercial beekeepers, bee supply dealers, queen breeders, package-bee shippers, honey packers, and entomologists. The Classroom Department of the American Bee Journal has been a popular place for beekeepers of all levels of experience and interest to exchange questions, answers, ideas, comments and opinions for years. Beekeeping questions of all kinds, regardless of experience levels, are solicited and encouraged.
We started The Urban Beehive in 2010 with the aim of supporting the honeybees that do their critically important work in urban Sydney. We put beehives in city backyards, businesses, community gardens and on rooftops; from Bondi to Marrickville – even the Botanic Gardens. Across Sydney, the bees are enjoying some great views! And our hives are happy and healthy. But internationally, bees are in drastic decline, with whole populations being destroyed overnight as a result of introduced threats. We’re here to help protect local bee populations against these threats; and to raise awareness of the plight of all our beneficial insects. We do this partly through education with our popular beekeeping courses in The Centennial Parklands. We also do plenty of public speaking and now have a beekeeping shop in Matraville, Sydney where you can buy all your beekeeping needs in one place.

Jarrah honey is known for its high anti oxidants and healing properties.
Les abeilles font partie de notre famille depuis 1978, quand Marie-Claude Dupuis et Claude Desrochers font l’acquisition de leur première ruche à Ferme-Neuve dans les Hautes-Laurentides. Au fil des années, ils ont su nous insuffler le désir de reprendre le cheptel familial et de créer les Miels d’Anicet au tournant de l’an 2000. L’aventure pouvait commencer. Qui sommes-nous? Des fous furieux du miel, des artisans de la terre, des épicuriens, des curieux qui considèrent le métier d’apiculteur comme un mélange parfait entre l’entomologie, la biologie et la botanique. Mais encore, un couple qui adore leur métier, les abeilles et la bonne vie en bonne compagnie. Né dans une ruche, Anicet voue un amour profond à cet insecte fantastique et cette science qu’est l’apidologie. Il est aussi habité par le désir de contribuer à la survie des abeilles en renversant naturellement leur taux de mortalité par la sélection et la reproduction de reines rustiques adaptées à leur environnement. Au quotidien, il veille à la santé de nos colonies et fait rayonner son expertise à l’international afin de faire avancer la science apicole. Au-delà du miel qu’elle produit, l’abeille joue un rôle essentiel de pollinisatrice et de gardienne de notre environnement. Habités par un amour indéfectible envers ces gardiennes de notre biodiversité, nous plaçons leur survie au cœur de notre pratique d’apiculture. C’est pourquoi nous explorons les quatre coins de la planète, avides de mille et une découvertes gustatives, soucieux de poser des gestes significatifs et d’acquérir de nouveaux outils de perfectionnement. De retour à Ferme-Neuve, chaque expérience teinte à sa manière notre façon de créer. Élevage de reines avec génétique rustique, production de miels sauvages de grande qualité, développement de produits gourmands et corporels, restauration saisonnière : toutes les occasions sont bonnes pour valoriser les produits de la ruche et faire rayonner la culture du miel au Québec. Bees have been part of our family since 1978, when Marie-Claude Dupuis and Claude Desrochers acquired their first hive at Ferme-Neuve in the Hautes-Laurentides. Over the years, they have instilled in us the desire to take over the family stock and create Miels d'Anicet at the turn of the year 2000. The adventure could begin. Who are we? Mad people mad about honey, artisans of the earth, epicureans, curious people who consider the profession of beekeeper as a perfect mix between entomology, biology and botany. But still, a couple who adore their profession, the bees and the good life in good company. Born in a beehive, Anicet has a deep love for this fantastic insect and the science of apidology. It is also inhabited by the desire to contribute to the survival of bees by naturally reversing their mortality rate through the selection and reproduction of hardy queens adapted to their environment. On a daily basis, he ensures the health of our colonies and promotes his expertise internationally in order to advance beekeeping science. Beyond the honey it produces, the bee plays an essential role of pollinator and guardian of our environment. Inhabited by an unwavering love for these guardians of our biodiversity, we place their survival at the heart of our beekeeping practice. This is why we explore the four corners of the planet, eager for a thousand and one taste discoveries, anxious to take meaningful action and acquire new development tools. Back at Ferme-Neuve, each experience tints our way of creating in its own way. Queen breeding with rustic genetics, production of high quality wild honeys, development of gourmet and bodily products, seasonal catering: all occasions are good to promote beehive products and promote the culture of honey in Quebec.
The Natural Beekeeping Trust was formed in 2009 in response to the need for an alternative approach to the care of bees. The key aims of the trust are disseminate information about bee-centred, natural beekeeping, develop new understandings and ways of relating to the bee that work with the natural behaviour of the creature rather than the enforced and stressful behaviour seen in conventional, chemical-dependent, beekeeping. The Natural Beekeeping Trust is delighted to be collaborating with partner organisations in Turkey, Holland and Macedonia on a two-year international sustainable beekeeping project funded by Erasmus+. We will document existing practices that focus on sustainable and bee-centred husbandry during field visits in partner countries, and will develop online resources and training opportunities for beekeepers and farmers. The Trust is governed by the UK Charity Commission, with which it is registered as a not for profit organisation. We encourage attention to the real nature of bees, their nesting preferences, their forage needs and their all-encompassing purpose. We hope to inspire people to live in peace with the bees, be good hosts to them, guard them and grow for them, in all ways imaginable.
Moglie, madre, nonna, Paola Thaon di Revel ama i fiori e la natura. L'eredità è il suo background. È cresciuta in una famiglia dove la disciplina militare era un dato di fatto, così come la voglia di divertirsi. Sei sorelle e un fratello, in una grande villa chiamata “Cimena”, dove molti sono venuti in visita: da Umberto I, agli americani colti, ai vicini Bruni Tedeschi sulla stessa collina. Una vita dedicata al marito, Franco Reviglio e ai tre figli con tanti spostamenti e viaggi, in tutto il mondo. Oggi, i sette nipoti e la casa di campagna, regalano giornate intensamente soddisfacenti. Wife, mother, grandmother, Paola Thaon di Revel loves flowers and nature. Heritage is her background.

A life dedicated to her husband, Franco Reviglio and the three children with many moves and travels, all over the world. Today, the seven grandchildren and country house, make for intensely satisfying days.

Villaggio dell’accoglienza (Welcoming village) is the answer for everybody has had anguishing experiences and is forced to live at the margins of society. It is an educational space that through the testimony of given life and laboratory activities allows a path to rehabilitation and re-integration. The production activities: Thanks to the wonderful area of Lunigiana that touches Liguria, Tuscany and Emilia Romagna they have developed activities connected to apiculture. Il Pungiglione have more than 1000 families of bees and hive products from organic agriculture (propolis, royal jelly, wax) and become a specialized pole able to provide complex services to farmers: wax factory for wax making and wax sheets, wood working that produce beekeeping equipment, consortium honey factory for all the activities connected to honey production and sale. In order to show the extraordinary Villaggio dell’Accoglienza social project Il Pungiglione offers to visitors a new hostel with restaurant and a educational farm agreement with Tuscany Region and many others authorities at national level. We work with respect for nature: all the production activities of the Village exploit alternative energy thanks to the photovoltaic system. Pungiglione’s products are organic, certified by Bioagricert authority. The jewel of the crown of the production is represented by Honey Dop of Lunigiana, the first in Italian honey that obtained the reward, the only one Bio-Dop&Supportive. Boceda was a dynamite factory, abandoned for many years until our arrival. In 1999 the remaining site dedicated to industrial production was composed by some old precarious buildings suffocated by vegetation. We cleaned and restored the buildings. From that period Il Pungiglione assisted a bloom of social recovery, both human and environmental, that we hope to carry on in the future with strength and determination.
