Let Us Tell You About Honey Bee Resources

As beekeepers and bee lovers, we love to share about the riches that come from bee hive resources.   As a business, BEEpothecary creates artisan batches of  health, skin and hair care products made with beehive resources – propolis, honey, pollen and beeswax. We have a particular passion for propolis and have pent several years pouring over scientific research on the use of propolis for health and illness. We have several presentations that we do for beekeeping conferences, honey festivals, individual beekeeper clubs and homesteading/natural living festivals.  We offer Power Point programs with demonstrations and sampling of various products and raw materials. We also buy raw propolis (and other hive resources) from other beekeepers by the pound and can provide instructions for how to clean it to prepare for sale.

Our presentations include:

  • The health benefits of hive resources;
  • How to collect clean and prepare hive products for use in value added products;
  • Different forms of hive products that can be marketed;
  • How to make many different products using bee resources;
  • The categorizing, production and labeling laws that must be followed to market value added hive products other than honey;
  • Honey Bees and Beekeeping, for non-beekeepers
  • Combinations of two or more of these topics in one presentation.

Our speaking charge is $100 for a 45 – 90 min presentation,  plus travel costs.  (We are willing to negotiate, in some cases, for smaller groups with a limited budget.)  We love sharing about the amazing health benefits of hive resources with others! If your club, conference or event is in need of a speaker on any of these topics, please contact us at beepothecary@gmail.com  or call 1-450-2339.

We just finished  a great, but exhausting three days at the Columbus Oktoberfest, talking with people about the amazing honeybees.  It was exciting to share our knowledge of the benefits of hive resources – especially propolis – with visitors who stopped by our booth.  It’s fun to turn  people on to the benefits of natural resources put on this earth by our Creator.

We enjoyed meeting lots of new people and appreciated the support of friends and family members who stopped by to say hi or to help.  We met many other vendors – nice people who gave us lots of tips and suggestions for other shows.  We were even able to help a few other vendors out by sharing our wi-fi set up, thanks to our tech guru, Pete.   To top off our efforts, we WON the Best Decorated Booth Award from the Oktoberfest Committee!

This business adventure is fun, but can wear us out!  We are looking forward to a few weeks of rest and time to work on our houses, laundry and yards!  And maybe get away for a relaxing weekend camping trip!

Psalm 128

Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him.
You will eat the fruit of your labor;  blessings and prosperity will be yours.
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table.
Yes, this will be the blessing for the man who fears the Lord.

May the Lord bless you from Zion; may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life.
May you live to see your children’s children— peace be on Israel.
