Half-Acre Beekeeping provides beekeeping services and CSA-style shares of honey and bee products. Andy and Jess maintain a series of "micro-apiaries" on local farms where customers can buy in to get a share of the harvest, as well as tickets to their weekly summer apiary tours. They also install and manage beehives for residences and businesses in the Seacoast area. The way bees are managed is a bit different than most other farm animals, obviously, but we use mostly non-chemical management methods and an organic thyme camphor paste for spot treatment when absolutely necessary. We emphasize sustainability as part of our business model (sustainably-sourced NH white pine hives made by a local company; 0 VOC paint; recycled [and recyclable!] packaging; etc)
