About Us
Bird and the Bees Honey is a collaboration between life partners James Cook and Samantha Jones. The adventure with bees started three years prior on the whim of a fellow friend offering the idea to try bee keeping for the summer with a commercial operation in central Minnesota. The pair not knowing what wild path lied ahead of them followed the lead and fell head first into a never dreamed of passion. Along with their Parrot and an old Grey Hound bus, upon which they live, they committed to a future of chasing a never ending bloom.

Sam grew up in southern California and James in central Wisconsin, they found each other working one summer in Alaska 5 years ago. For the past three years they have worked along side a commercial bee keeping operation in Barrett MN learning the trade. This past summer the pair decided to further their passion and bought 32 hives of their own. Still working along side their mentors operation, the pair continue to learn and work towards a sustainable future as bee keepers.
Practices
The old saying goes what is good for the bees is bad for the bee keeper. As stewards of the bees we try to follow organic practices as closely as possible. Our hive are never treated with synthetic chemicals. We never take honey from our brood chambers, allowing us to minimally feed our bees with sucrose in the fall.
