As Beekeepers we want to make sure that
the environment inside the hive is optimum. Strong colonies can control the
temperature within the hive but sometimes you need to help them by providing
proper ventilation. Beekeepers tend to think of ventilation more...

Controlling Your Varroa Mite Counts
Varroa Mites are small,
reddish-brown tick like pests that feed off the hemolymph (blood) of the bees.

Dealing with a Weak Hive
We are often asked by new potential beekeepers if they should start with one or two hives.  We recommend that beekeepers start with at least two hives if possible.  This is not a ploy to try to have you spend more money, but to give you the opportunity to c...

Our catalog states that we will be closed September 26th for inventory. This is a Friday! What were we thinking? You probably have orders that need to go out or planned to travel to our retail store.

We would like to inform everyone that we will in fact be OPEN on Sept. 26th. Please give us a call or come by our store!

Brushy Mountain is in a very competitive business. There are lots of big names, and those other names are all terrible. Brushy Mountain Bee Farm is the BEST, no exceptions. Nobody else even comes close. There wooden gear is high quality. They are very helpful. I messed up an order and they went way out of their way to help me fix it. I have never had a back order from them and that is rare in the bee supply business. We are approaching the $10,000 mark with Brushy Mountain and we will push way past that over the years to come. I'm so glad to have a vendor that cares about us and makes the effort to earn our business.
