Mentoring Beekeepers Since 2017

Why we do what we do:

We believe every beekeeper deserves mentorship to find their footing in beekeeping. We all win when new beekeepers have the support they need to succeed and keep bees responsibly. But we won’t sugar coat it; running a community like Backyard Beekeeping is expensive. For starters, we pay our experts and editors for their time and knowledge because we believe is research-based storytelling and tutorials. In turn, they get to do what they love — keep bees and deliver helpful tutorials to you.
