Welcome! My name is Katy. I am a beekeeper by day, and a soap maker by night. That is, once all 5 kids are in bed. Together with my husband, 2 dogs, and 5 chickens, I manage an ultra-tiny urban garden and apiary. We grow all of our family's vegetables in a space smaller than a 2 car garage. And on less than 1/5 of an acre we maintain 3 honeybee hives and raise over 2000 native mason and leafcutter bees. My goal is to bring bees to backyards everywhere, with a focus on making sure you have the right bees for what you want to accomplish. Together we will learn how to protect our natural pollinators, grow real food, and master the art of using what the earth provides in a more sustainable fashion.
Most of my products are available year-round in my online shop. If you want to see them in person, check out the Events tab above to see where I will be next. You can also make an appointment to visit my home-based workshop by calling or emailing, or by clicking the Contact link on the bottom of any page.
