Creating a self sustaining, environment enriching, community supporting, at home family business to for a newly emptied nest with no retirement.

The sudden and life changing experience of an empty-nest has left an echo in our home.    I work hospice and manage neighboring vacation rentals with extraordinary hours and precious little pay for it.   My husband has been home, disabled for the last ten years, so having many helpful hands in the house was what kept it all together. Our new life requires a new plan!     My husband is doing better these days, with new treatment , making him able and ready to be productivealthough he is still limited requiring his endeavors to be home based.   It just so happens, we live on a fresh water lake , in a forest right next to the ocean on the southern Oregon coast…..the perfect location to raise bees! Exciting!

We’ve talked to the locals, most of whom are organic produce, blueberry and cranberry farmers who all say this would be a welcome addition and perfectly suited for our area. We have studied, been tutored and created a business plan and model.  Besides the trees and plants that already support wild bees here, we have planted many new Bee friendly plants.     We are now ready to raise the funds for Flow Hive bee boxes and equipment then offer friends, family and well-wishers a jar of honey (from the first few harvests) as a thank you for donating to this startup! 

Our goal is to install  Three Hives  in the first year and another six the second year.

We are excited to establish this Self-sustaining, environment enriching , community supporting home based business for a family with no retirement.   

    Help us Save Ourselves while Saving Bees!
