Welcome! I am Katy; a beekeeper by day, and a soap maker by night. Together with my husband, 5 kids, 2 dogs, 2 cats, 4 parakeets, 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 a few 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 the job. Together we will learn how to protect our natural pollinators, and master the art of using what exists on our earth in a more sustainable fashion.
My bath & beauty products are all handmade using pollinator-friendly materials, including pesticide-free organic oils and butters. I also stock a variety of products made by bees and for bees, such as Bees Wrap and native bee raising kits. I do not currently have my own retail location, but most of my products are available year-round in my online shop and in several local stores and salons.
