It started with a couple in love with this island and the life it has to offer. In 2011 we acquired two hives and became passionate bee stewards. We are trained in beekeeping and accessed an international grant to train others in sustainable beekeeping, able to face climate change. We have pioneered the market of small batch specialty honey in the DR. Today we have a small network of beekeepers operating under the principles of fair trade, superior quality and the survival of the wonderful bees. Among all of us, we manage more than 600 hives and have planted over 3,000 bee-friendly native plant species.
